ADAS

At the Epicenter of Safety Technology Development

Advanced Driver Assistance System(ADAS) allows self-driving technologies to come true. Hyundai Motor Group announced the launch of an autonomous driving tech company ‘Motional’ back in March 2020, to develop advanced ADAS platforms that add safety as well as credence to their highly autonomous vehicles, and to lead the era of autonomous driving. How far has ADAS technology come to the era of fully autonomous driving?

PROGRESSHyundai Motor Group’s Various Autonomous Driving Technologies

Hyundai Motor Group is developing autonomous driving technologies based on its development philosophy – Universal Safety and Selective Convenience. Universal Safety refers to the technologies that secure the driver’s vision, warn the driver, or sometimes intervene in driving, if necessary, to avoid collision. Selective Convenience, on the other hand, refers to the technologies that are for repeated operations when parking or driving on behalf of the driver.

Universal Safety

Universal Safety is our principle to offer as many safety functions as basic features to all segment models to ensure safety of drivers, passengers, pedestrians and other drivers. This way, we can provide enhanced safety in all possible situations.

Technologies include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), Surround View Monitor (SVM), and Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist (PCA).

Hyundai Motor Group is expanding the scope of segments to which safety functions are applied, with the goal of realizing Universal Safety that provides safety to more customers through reasonable prices. For example, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist technology which used to be a premium option, has been applied to sub-compact cars since 2017. From 2020, we provide Lane Keeping Assist and Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist as the basic features of sub-compact cars.

Selective Convenience

Selective Convenience means that the convenience function with high maturity is provided as an option according to the segments in certain situations. Below are high-quality convenience features provided under certain situations as an option, depending on the segment. The technologies include Smart Cruise Control (SCC), Lane Keeping Assist (LFA), Highway Driving Assist (HDA), and Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA).

Universal Safety and Selective Convenience features include these four categories – Driving Safety/Driving Convenience/Parking Safety/ and Parking Convenience, depending on driving environment and importance.

KEY TECH1. Driving Safety

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)

This function may help automatically bring the vehicle to a stop in certain situations where there is a risk of collision with an approaching vehicle detected through the front camera and the radar, when warning is considered not enough.

Basic Function

If the preceding vehicle suddenly slows down, or if a forward collision risk is detected, such as a stopped vehicle, a pedestrian, or a cyclist in front, FCA provides a warning. After the warning, if the risk of collision increases, FCA automatically assists with emergency braking.

Junction Turning Function

When driving, if there is a risk of collision with an oncoming vehicle while turning left at an intersection, FCA automatically assists with emergency braking.

Junction Crossing Function

While driving through an intersection, if there is a risk of collision with oncoming vehicles, FCA automatically assists with emergency braking.

Lane-Change Oncoming Function

When changing lanes while driving, if there is a risk of collision with an oncoming vehicle in the next lane, FCA automatically assists with avoidance steering.

Lane-Change Side Function

When changing lanes while driving, if there is a risk of collision with a preceding vehicle in the next lane, FCA automatically assists with avoidance steering.

Evasive Steering Assist Function

While driving, if there is a risk of collision with a pedestrian, partially in the vehicle’s intended path, FCA automatically assists with avoidance steering.

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)

If driving above a certain speed and the driver leaves a lane without the turn signal switch being operated, LKA provides a warning. When a lane departure is detected, LKA automatically assists with steering to help prevent leaving the lane.

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)

When operating the turn signal switch to change lanes, if there is a risk of collision with a rear side vehicle, BCA provides a warning. After the warning, if the risk of collision increases, BCA automatically controls the vehicle to help avoid a collision.

If exiting a parallel parking spot and there is a risk of collision with a rear side vehicle, BCA automatically assists with emergency braking.

Safe Exit Assist (SEA)

When the occupant opens the door to exit the vehicle after a stop, if an approaching vehicle from the rear side is detected, SEA provides a warning. SEA also helps keep the rear door closed through operation of the electronic child lock.

Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA)

ISLA warns if driving over the speed limit of the road using the information of the front view camera or navigation. Set speed can be changed according to the speed limit during MSLA or SCC operation

Driver Attention Warning (DAW)

DAW displays the driver’s attention level while driving. Provides a warning when signs of driver inattentiveness are detected, and recommends a rest if needed.

Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM)

When operating the turn signal switch, BVM displays video of the blind-spot view for the direction indicated.

High Beam Assist (HBA)

HBA recognizes the ambient light and illuminance, such as the lamp of an opposite vehicle or preceding vehicle, and automatically turns the high beam On/Off.

2. Driving Convenience

Smart Cruise Control (SCC)

SCC helps maintain distance from the vehicle ahead and drive at a speed set by the driver. It also automatically stops when the car in front stops and automatically starts when the car in front departs. If a period of time has elapsed, start again by pressing the accelerator pedal or operating the +/- switch.

Based on Driving Style

SCC reflect the learned driving style (vehicle distance, acceleration, and reaction speed) of the driver. When SCC is inactive (Off/Standby), SCC learns the driver’s driving style.

Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control (NSCC)

NSCC helps drive at a safe speed on the highway using navigation. If the driver sets the set speed to the current speed limit on the highway during NSCC operation, the set speed changes automatically whenever the speed limit changes.

Safety Speed Zone

In a highway safety speed zone, the speed is automatically reduced appropriately before entering the zone. When leaving the zone, the speed is returned to the previous setting.

Curve Zone

In a highway curved section, the speed is automatically reduced appropriately before entering the curve. When leaving the curve, the speed is returned to the previous setting.

Ramp

In a highway ramp section, the speed is automatically reduced appropriately before entering the ramp. When leaving the ramp, the speed is returned to the previous setting.

Lane Following Assist (LFA)

LFA helps center the vehicle in the lane. When driving, LFA can be switched on and off by pressing the Lane Driving Assist button.

Highway Driving Assist (HDA)

HDA helps maintain a set distance and speed from the vehicle ahead when driving on a highway and helps center the vehicle in the lane while driving, even through a curve.

Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA 2)

In case the vehicle on the side is driving very close, HDA 2 assists to adjust the vehicle’s path. If driving above a certain speed, holding the steering wheel, and operating the turn signal switch automatically changes the lane in the indicated direction.

3. Parking safety

Rear View Monitor (RVM)

For safe parking, RVM displays the situation rear of the vehicle. Changing the gear to R or pressing the Parking/View button, activates RVM.

Surround View Monitor (SVM)

For safe parking, SVM displays the situation around the vehicle. Changing the gear to R or pressing the Parking/View button, activates SVM. It is possible to select various views through the menu on the left.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA)

If there is a risk of collision with an oncoming vehicle on the left or right side while reversing, RCCA provides a warning. After the warning, if the risk of collision increases, RCCA automatically assists with emergency braking.

Parking Distance Warning (PDW)

PDW warns against collisions with objects around the vehicle at low speeds. Changing the gear to R or pressing the Parking Safety button in gear D activates PDW.

Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist (PCA)

If there is a risk of collision with a rear object while reversing, PCA provides a warning. After the warning, if the risk of collision increases, PCA automatically assists with emergency braking.

4. Parking Convenience

Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA)

RSPA helps remotely park or exit a parking spot from outside the vehicle.
While near the vehicle, pressing the door lock button on the smart key, then pressing and holding the Remote-Start button, starts the vehicle. Press and hold the Forward or Backward button on the smart key until the vehicle reaches the desired position.

While driving, pressing and holding the Parking/View button activates RSPA. To explore for an available parking space, drive straight ahead while maintaining a proper gap with the parked vehicles. Once a parking space has been detected, select the desired parking type icon after stopping. If the driver would like to use the Smart Parking function, pressing and holding the Parking/View button activates RSPA automatically. If the driver would like to use the Remote Smart Parking function, exit the vehicle with gear P selected and press the Forward or Backward button on the smart key near the vehicle.
