Seoul, South Korea, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/

  • We have successfully developed the “E-Corner Module” which combines steering, braking, chassis and drive systems
  • This allows for flexible use of the platforms, such as changing the wheelbase; Rotate the wheel up to 90 degrees to allow lateral movement and rotation in place
  • The goal is to develop a skateboard module: four electronic corner modules are planned to be developed by 2023 and combined with automatic driving technology by 2025
  • Create a foundation to become a platform-oriented technology developer with the essential platform for PBV

Hyundai Mobis (KRX: 012330) has successfully developed the next generation of car wheel technology, which is the core technology for future city mobility. It’s a true dream technology that allows the car to be parked with 90° swivel and direct swivel. This is also necessary for the production of purpose-built compounds (PBVs).

Hyundai Mobis has announced the successful development of a new technology, the “E-Corner Module,” which integrates steering, braking, suspension and steering systems into one wheel. This new technology represents a quantum leap in the car as a mechanical hub was used to connect the steering wheel. It is also an essential technology for future smart city mobility.

The electronic corner unit concept was first introduced at CES 2018. This time, Hyundai Mobis has redefined the concept of practical use in cars, developed a control unit and completed functional testing. Once the background check and serial production feasibility study is completed, Hyundai Mobis will begin accepting serial applications from global automakers for their application.

The biggest advantage of the E-Corner unit is that it does not require mechanical contact between parts, which allows better use of space in the car. It not only makes it easier to change the wheelbase, but also provides greater flexibility in steering doors and vehicle size. This technology is essential for the manufacture of PBVs that provide mobility services such as coffee shops and hospitals.

Of particular note is that it evolved from the traditional 30-degree rotation. It now allows the wheel to be rotated 90 degrees if necessary, for example when parking, and enables driving in crab-steering (sideways) and no turning, i.e. turning without moving forward or backward. The agility of vehicles in the narrow streets of the city is also increased. Accordingly, public driving in the city is improving.

The electronic corner unit is an advanced technology that many companies have not managed to mass-produce on a global scale. However, Hyundai Mobis managed to successfully develop the technology, the requirements for which were to combine the steering, braking, suspension and steering systems in one wheel while ensuring safety while driving.

Unlike other auto parts makers who make certain parts, Hyundai Mobis is able to develop key parts used in vehicles. These include, for example, steering, braking, connecting and electrical parts. The synergy between these parts was clearly an advantage when developing the E-Corner unit.

Hyundai Mobis plant, bis 2023 ein Skateboard-Modul zu entwickeln, das die reale Fahrzeugleistung durch die integrierte Steuerung von vier E-Corner-Modulen umsetzt, und es dann mit der automatischen FahrsteuerungszuerungstechnologieB. ability.
