Hyundai Motor Demonstrates ‘Mobility Vision' with Hyper-Connected Car and Smart House
【Summary】Hyundai Motor extends commitment to customer care with innovation by revealing ‘Mobility Vision’ concept. The concept pairs Connected Car and Smart House for seamless technological.
At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017 in Las Vegas, Hyundai Motor has revealed its ‘Mobility Vision' concept that, in the future, will connect autonomous cars to living and working environments. Signaling the start of a new era, Hyundai Motor's Smart House technology blurs the line between mobility and living and working space, integrating the car into the daily lives of users.
The Smart House concept shown at CES is an important demonstration of Hyundai Motor's plans for ‘Mobility Vision', which places Connected Car technologies at the center of the home. The CES display suggests how the car could shed the image of a conventional vehicle, integrating itself with the living space when docked, before becoming a mobile living space when customers need to move around.
Hyundai Motor's future vision makes full use of the car for mobility and, crucially, when not travelling it enables customers to continue living without interruption by integrating its functionalities with the home. The new concept combines the comfort, convenience and connectivity features of the car and the home into ‘one space'.
Hak Su Ha, Director of Hyundai Design Center said: "Hyundai Motor recognizes the significance of connected technologies and the extent to which they could benefit our customers' daily lives. Our Smart House concept fully integrates the car into the home, ultimately making the user's life more comfortable and convenient. By seamlessly blending features from the car with home and work environments, the user experience is uninterrupted whether socializing, working at home, or on the move."
When ‘docked' with the Smart Home, Hyundai Motor's mobility concept becomes an integral part of the living space, performing useful functions and enhancing the living environment. For example, the mobility concept can act as an air conditioner; share its entertainment facilities by mirroring audio and visual outputs with the home's smart devices; and even provide power in emergency situations, using its on-board fuel cell as a generator.
In addition to presenting an innovative solution to overpopulation and limited living space, the ‘Mobility Vision' ambition extends to connected technologies that make users' lives easier on a daily basis. Hyundai Motor's investment in ‘hyper-connectivity' will become so advanced that users will not feel the movement of transport as they continue using the living and working space. Advanced communication with other cars and traffic systems means the user can continue living until they reach their destination making it possible to carry on working or relaxing without interruption.
