- Highway Autonomous Driving
In February 2018, Hyundai Motor Group succeeded in an autonomous driving test over a 190km stretch from Seoul to Pyeongchang
using a next-gen hydro-electric car, the Genesis G80-based autonomous vehicle, proving its world class technical capability.
HDA Ⅱ (Highway Driving Assist Ⅱ) for driver support in highways
Hyundai Motor Group has been producing and selling HDA, which is a level 2 driving assistance system as per the definition by SAE, where the system provides assistance in lane maintenance trolling distances between vehicles. Also, the company is researching and developing HDA Ⅱ, which is capable of controlling lane shifting or leaning-driving within the lane.
Lane shifting Assistance Control
Biased Lane Keeping
Responding to a vehicle
that cuts in at a short distance
Preemptive decelerating at safety zones or curves
Optimal control of distance between vehicles and acceleration/deceleration based on the preference of the driver
February 2018, the car drove for itself at the highest speed.
There have been cases where autonomous vehicles drove themselves in South Korean roads at limited speed. However, this was
the first time autonomous driving was performed at the highest legal speed (100km/h ~ 110km/h) over a stretch of several
The highways in South Korea are as crowded as the roads in downtown areas. And, it is required to consider overall conditions of the roads, including roadworks. Because of this, this requires a lot of know-how and highly advanced technology to succeed.
For this purpose, Hyundai Motor Group deployed three autonomous vehicles based on the next-gen hydro-electric cars and two Genesis G80 autonomous vehicles, which are capable of Level 4 SAE autonomous capabilities and conducted driving tests over a distance of several hundreds of thousands of kilometers. With this the company accumulated a lot of data and improved the performance of autonomous vehicles.
