Hyundai Mobis, a public South Korean car parts company, has developed a camera monitoring system that may be used as a replacement for the side-view mirrors in the next-generation vehicles. Three high-performance camera sensors installed inside the vehicle will, reportedly, increase driving safety by reducing the blind spots. Moreover, unlike conventional cars with side-view mirrors, here the cameras will be situated inside the car, thereby cutting down on wind resistance. Consequently, the vehicle is expected to deliver better fuel efficiency figures.
With the introduction of this advanced sensor technology, Hyundai Mobis will become one among a small number of global future mobility developers working towards exporting their technology to car manufacturers. Besides the development of elementary technologies like sensors and solutions based on them, the company will also work on the core parts portfolio.
Speaking on the occasion, Gregory Baratoff, Vice President said, “The paradigm shift to the future car is demanding both functional and design upgrades of all core components, which have been taken for granted until today.”
