Hyundai Develops Urban ADAS Tech to Help With Narrow Streets

HyundaiMobis Narrow400x275

November 15, 2021

Hyundai Mobis has announced it developed the world’s first urban Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) to help drivers with narrow streets and reversing in a dead-end street. The Mobis Parking System (MPS) integrates narrow space assistance, reverse assistance, and remote smart parking assistance features.

With the MPS, the car can drive itself through a narrow street by avoiding obstructions, drive through the revolving gate of an underground parking lot, or drive backwards at a dead end where two cars are facing each other, Hyundai Mobis said. All of these features are made possible at the press of a button.

The company said it developed this technology using its own software logic and mass-produced ultrasonic sensors. While radar and lidar sensors are useful for recognizing objects located far away or in high-speed driving, ultrasonic sensors are more suitable for narrow streets or underground parking lots. The ultrasonic sensors can recognize objects over a short distance, while the software logic and control system performs the self-driving. Technologies include:

  • Narrow Space Assistance: The car needs only 16 inches of extra space on both sides to drive through a narrow street by itself.
  • Reverse Assistance: Records the car’s travel route on a real-time basis and creates the reverse route by itself at the press of a button. The steering wheel and vehicle speed is then controlled automatically.
  • Remote Smart Parking Assistance: The system can park a car at a right angle or in parallel by finding an empty space when the driver is out of the car and presses the remote. A 3D Surround View Monitor provides a better parking experience by showing the area 360 degrees around the car in three dimensions. Rear autonomous emergency braking is also noticeable.

The company said it will suggest to global automakers that they apply these technologies, and the system can be expanded to purpose-built vehicles as well as large SUVs.
