Hyundai Motor and KT plan to kind and function a committee to advertise future new initiatives and superior analysis
Korean automotive maker Hyundai Motor Group stated it can develop its strategic partnership with compatriot telecom operator KT Company (KT) to additional collaborate sooner or later mobility market.
In a launch, Hyundai Motor Group introduced that it’s going to push for in depth cooperation in next-generation communication infrastructure and ICT, together with joint analysis with KT on 6G autonomous driving expertise and Superior Air Mobility (AAM) communication community primarily based on satellite tv for pc communication.
Along with joint superior analysis on future applied sciences, the 2 events can even diversify their enterprise partnership areas in 5G communication network-based, personalized linked automotive companies and safety communication module expertise collaboration by exchanging present core competency of respective celebration.
Hyundai Motor Group and KT agreed to deal with advancing car applied sciences within the area of connectivity space, which is the idea for realizing MECA (Mobility Service, Electrification, Connectivity, Autonomous).
The events famous that connectivity is a key component of MECA, which allows easy expertise operation solely when a secure high-quality communication community is supported. To this finish, the worldwide vehicle business is competing to safe associated applied sciences by partnerships with telecom operators.
The 2 events agreed to accumulate mutual shares by treasury inventory trade so as to create synergy in future companies, improve the execution and sustainability of mutual cooperation, and strengthen long-term partnerships.
