New technologies for driver safety and convenience

The most representative infotainment system is telematics, created by the fusion of telecommunication and informatics. Featuring a state-of-the-art communication terminal with built-in GPS that is connected to various other electronic devices in the vehicle, the system offers various useful information to the driver to promote safer driving. Hyundai·Kia Motors became the first company in Korea to offer an integrated telematics service called Mozen to enhance the comfort and pleasure of driving.

Hologram HUD
Space holographic technology is a progressive technology that displays various driving and driver convenience information on the front windshield in the form of a 3D hologram.
DSM (Driven State Monitoring)
DSM employs facial recognition engine technology to determine the driver’s state by monitoring changes in thedriver’s eye movements and facial muscles with an infrared camera installed inside the car. By measuring the driver’s blinking and facial direction patterns, it sounds an alarm sound and relays strong vibrations to the seat when abnormal states are detected.
Self-healing scratch shield
SRC (Scratch Recovery Clear) uses the elasticity of special chemically composed matters in a  clear paint that has  self-healing properties. Scratches are automatically fixed over a period of time.
Solar cell sunroof
Solar cells are a representative form of environmentally-friendly and renewable energy. We are applying solar cells to automobile sunroofs and using the A/C fan operation to reduce the A/C load during summertime while enhancing cooling performance and cooling fuel efficiency.

Pre-crash headrest            
Pre-crash headrests help prevent driver neck injuries by detecting possible rear collisions using a rear-facing radar or camera that is built into the vehicle. When a possible collision is detected, the headrest automatically moves closer to the driver’s head for added protection. Once the risk has passed, the headrest then returns to its normal position after a certain period of time.
Nano glass (wiperless vehicles)
Nano technology is utilized to automatically remove water or dust from the front windshield without the need for wipers. Space holographic technology is a progressive technology that displays various driving and driver convenience information on the front windshield in the form of a 3D hologram.

Honeycomb tires
The non-pneumatic tires eliminate the possibility of flat tires with its special honeycomb-shaped tires or wheels that are covered in rubber on the outside.
