Called Mobis Parking System (MPS), Hyundai Mobis’ new system combines three separate functions: Narrow Space Assistance (NSA), Reverse Assistance (RA) and Remote Smart Parking Assistance (RSPA). The development of the MPS is another building block in Hyundai Mobis’ strategy to develop systems for autonomous driving, with autonomous driving technology specifically for urban areas. The system still works when there is only 16 inches – or 16 cm, the press release is not clear on this point – of space on either side of a vehicle for manoeuvring. This is the case, for example, in narrow, winding streets or cul-de-sacs.

With such a system, drivers no longer have to worry about passing a narrow road or facing a car in front in a cul-de-sac, even if they are inexperienced, the manufacturer advertises. With the MPS, the car is able to drive autonomously through a narrow street while avoiding obstacles, drive through the roll-up door of an underground car park or reverse into a cul-de-sac where two cars are facing each other.

Hyundai Mobis has developed this technology using proprietary software logic and mass-produced ultrasonic sensors. The technology takes advantage of the fact that radar and lidar sensors are useful for detecting distant objects or high-speed driving, while ultrasonic sensors are more suitable for narrow streets or underground parking. The ultrasonic sensors detect objects over a short distance, while the software logic and control system do the self-driving.

One of the core technologies of this system is Narrow Space Assistance (NSA). The car needs only 16 centimetres of additional space on both sides to drive autonomously through a narrow street. Another component of the MPS is Reverse Assistance (RA). It records the vehicle’s route in real time and independently creates the reverse route at the push of a button. Steering wheel and vehicle speed are controlled automatically.

In addition to the MPS, various other technologies for safety and comfort have been integrated into the system to further increase the competitiveness of the driver assistance solution. The RSPA system (Remote Smart Parking Assistance) is able to park a car at right angles or parallel, provided a suitable unoccupied space is found. To do this, the driver gets out of the car and activates the RSPA function by remote control. In doing so, the 3D Surround View Monitor (SVM) displays the area around the vehicle in three dimensions. The autonomous rear emergency braking (R-AEB) is also activated.

The MPS will be offered to car manufacturers worldwide, Hyundai Mobis announced. The supplier has its sights set on large SUVs, which are currently growing in popularity, as well as special-purpose vehicles (PBVs).

With the introduction of the system, Hyundai Mobis is adding to its range of technologies for automated driving in the city. In March, the company unveiled its M.Vision Pop, a small urban mobility concept, and last month it succeeded in developing a foldable steering system and a 90-degree rotating e-corner module for shared autonomous vehicles.
