Hyundai Motor is building an open innovation lab to develop future mobility technologies in Singapore’s Jurong Innovation District.
Construction is expected to start in May this year and completed by the second half of 2022.
The 28,000-square metre Hyundai Mobility Global Innovation Centre will test out a small-scale electric vehicle production facility before creating an automated platform to manufacture smart vehicles.
This platform will integrate artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, digitalisation, and robotics to make automotive plants safer and greatly reduce manpower requirement. The lab will test an on-demand production system, that lets customers build vehicles with a wider range of customisation options.
Hyundai will also use the lab to experiment with multi-modal mobility services, on-demand shuttle and last-mile mobility via e-scooters.
