Hyundai Mobis offers collaborative robotics logistics solutions featuring key future mobility technologies

  • Development of mobile collaborative robots and self-driving logistics robots… An integrated system for controlling multiple robots.
  • Implementation in general manufacturing sites, smart factories … is expected to expand the services of human-friendly robots.
  • Robo-wheel technology is expected to expand the range of robotics solutions for outdoor uses.

Seoul, KoreaAnd the November 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Hyundai Mobis (KRX: 012330), an industry leader in future smart mobility solutions, introduces robots that can be used on general manufacturing sites or in smart factories. The bots will feature a range of technologies that encourage safe interactions between bots and their human counterparts. With its expansion into the robotics industry, Hyundai Mobis has once again cemented its position as a leader in core future vehicle technologies, including electrification and autonomous driving.

Hyundai Mobis announced on the 28th that it has recently completed the development of mobile autonomous driving-based collaborative mobile robotics and logistics systems, which has been carried out for trial runs at its Ulsan plant. Collaborative and logistics bots can be used in manufacturing or distribution bases as well as in service locations. Hyundai Mobis has also succeeded in developing an exclusive integrated command and control system, which is essential for providing robotic solutions.

Mobile robots with articulated arms move independently in different environments, such as factories or offices, and perform tasks in collaboration with the people in charge. Mobile collaborative robots are equipped with LiDAR cameras and sensors, allowing them to move in different directions, such as back and forth or sideways.

By far the most remarkable feature of these bots is that they are capable of providing mobile services. Unlike general industrial robots or wearable robots, mobile collaborative robots serve different purposes both at home and in commercial spaces. Vision cameras and the robots’ moving arms allow them to perform interactive tasks with their human counterparts, such as arranging products on a shelf or serving a cup of coffee brewed by a barista to a table.

The self-driving logistics robots developed by Hyundai Mobis are low-floor robots that move freely between production lines and distribution warehouses to move supplies or goods. Robots measuring 152mm tall can carry up to 200kg with the ability to lift up to 12cm. Using equipped LiDAR hardware, camera and ultrasound-enabled sensors, these robots are able to locate their own locations on site and also deliver materials via optimal paths that are mapped to avoid workers and obstacles.

In addition, Hyundai Mobis has secured a system that allows the integrated control of multiple self-driving logistics robots in a single workplace. The key to this control system is to prevent collisions and situations between robots. Hyundai Mobis has developed and implemented a proprietary algorithm that predicts and controls the movement of multiple robots in real time.

Hyundai Mobis is also developing a robotics system that can be used outdoors. The system will incorporate robo-wheel technology, which is designed to help robots move safely in outdoor environments, such as slopes and rough road surfaces. The control algorithm built into the robot wheel will facilitate various driving movements, including 360-degree turns and side crab driving.

Lee Seung Hwan“We are exchanging innovative and creative ideas to develop safe and accurate robotics technologies. We hope to use these human-robot collaborative solutions to expand our business,” said Head of Advanced Engineering at Hyundai Mobis.

Hyundai Mobis plans to develop several robot platforms based on the core technologies of mobile collaborative robots and self-driving logistics robots currently under development. The project will focus on the development of robot interface, robot driving and robot control technologies, which will be used in a variety of fields, such as smart factories, distribution bases, offices and households.

In March, Hyundai Mobis added UAM and robotics to its business portfolio as part of its initiative to secure long-term growth drivers, while at the same time announcing its goal to expand the business model into next-generation growth areas. (End)
