- Hyundai’s robotics group building record in 3 areas of robotics: wearable robots, use robots, and micro-mobility
- Hyundai’s Vest Exoskeleton (H-VEX) and Chairless Exoskeleton (H-CEX) industrial robots boost potency and forestall work-related accidents
- Investments in Perceptive Automata and DeepGlint strengthen Hyundai’s concentration on Robot-Artificial Intelligence for destiny creation growth
SEOUL, Oct. 22, 2018 – Hyundai Motor Group has ventured serve into a high-value robotics attention of a destiny by commencing expansion of Hyundai Vest Exoskeleton (H-VEX) wearable industrial robots. Following a Hyundai Chairless Exoskeleton (H-CEX) proof conducted in a Hyundai-KIA North American bureau final August, a association skeleton to determine H-VEX’s success by endless contrast during a finish of 2018.
In early 2018, Hyundai comparison Robot-Artificial Intelligence as one of 5 areas of destiny creation growth. The association determined a designated robotics group in a vital record domicile to concentration on a expansion of compared tech, and is expanding a team-work with compared sectors.

Hyundai skeleton to implement a endless technological database collected from unconstrained vehicle prolongation knowledge to expostulate a company’s success in a robotics field.”
Hyundai is building record in 3 areas of robotics: wearable robots, use robots, and micro-mobility. The association is also in a routine of vital team-work with earnest domestic and general companies that possess robotic and synthetic comprehension technology.
The initial H-CEX, grown for industrial use, is a knee corner protecting device that helps say a worker’s sitting position. At 1.6kg it is light, nonetheless rarely durable and can withstand weights of adult to 150kg. With waist, thigh and knee belts it can be simply versed and practiced to a user’s height. It also facilities 3 opposite angle settings (85/70/55).
Along with a H-CEX, Hyundai skeleton to exam and request a H-VEX in a North American factories during a finish of a year.

These embody a ‘Hotel Service Robot’ that can, among other functions, take caring of room use and beam guest around a hotel; a ‘Sales Service Robot’ that can explain vehicle sum to business in retailers; an ‘Electric Vehicle Charge Manipulator’ that automatically charges an electric vehicle when stopped in front of it; and a next-generation ‘robotic personal mobility’ solution, a singular mobility height so versatile that it can solemnly span with dual wheels and change into a three-wheel formed ride for softened stability.
Hyundai Motor Group is creation confidant investments in robotics field, including substantiating a USD 4.5 million ‘AI Alliance Fund’ was combined in team-work with SK Telecom and Hanwha Asset Management Co. Ltd to deposit in earnest startups with cunning in synthetic comprehension and intelligent mobility.
Hyundai also instituted a vital investments in a US-based synthetic comprehension record startup Perceptive Automata to secure a tellurian transformation prophecy technology, and is auxiliary with China’s tip prophesy record versed synthetic comprehension startup DeepGlint.
