Hyundai Mobis unveils MPS – Breakthrough parking system including remote parking, self-reversing, and self-avoidance in tight spaces

After completing the testing process, MPS will soon be integrated into future Hyundai and Kia models, and can be made available to other car manufacturers.

How many inexperienced drivers ever wish they could park in difficult situations with the simple touch of a button? Now, the technology is advanced enough to make that dream a reality, at least on test cars. While much of today’s digital car features are focused on safety, South Korean automaker Hyundai wanted to introduce a complex system with the simple goal of helping drivers unskilled car.

Specifically, Hyundai Mobis, a subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Group and one of the top 7 auto parts suppliers in the world, mainly takes on the role of behind-the-scenes support, but this year they launched with an exciting innovation. Earlier this year, the Seoul-based company introduced a foldable steering wheel system and a “90-degree rotatable e-corner module” for autonomous vehicles.
Their latest technology innovation is Mobis Parking System (“Mobis Parking System”, MPS for short), a solution that integrates many features – narrow space assist (NSA), reverse assist (RA) , and Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA). The first problem solved by this system is driving on narrow streets. With the NSA, a car only needs 40 centimeters of space on either side, to drive itself on a narrow street.
Meanwhile, the RA feature is very useful when the driver finds himself lost in dead-end roads, facing another vehicle and having to back up. According to Mobis, the technology records a vehicle’s route in real time, so it can re-route itself in reverse with the simple push of a button. When activated, both the steering wheel and the vehicle’s speed will be automatically controlled.
Last but not least is the remote control parking system. The RSPA feature allows parking at a right angle, or parallel parking with the driver standing outside the vehicle. These are the main features of the Mobis Parking System, but it also integrates safety functions, and a 3D surround view monitor for better visibility when parking.
This innovative system is based on ultrasonic sensors, which can identify objects at shorter distances, compared to standard Radar and LiDAR sensors. This makes the ultrasonic sensor better adapted to narrow streets and underground parking lots.
Mobis Parking System is an innovative autonomous driving technology that confirms that Hyundai Mobis is serious about being the world’s leading technology supplier. The Korean company is also investing in hydrogen fuel cell plants, which are expected to start production in 2023.
