The lab will explore business ideas and technologies to revolutionise a value chain encompassing R&D, business and production for future mobility solutions and eventual expansion into global markets. Combining Hyundai’s open innovations efforts with Singapore’s fertile atmosphere, HMGICs will validate concepts including multi-modal mobility service.

The lab will also spearhead efforts to reach new markets and customers with cutting-edge technologies that will transform automotive R&D, production and sales. Combining AI, Internet of Things (IoT) and other advanced technologies, the lab will create a human-centred smart manufacturing platform that will be validated through a small pilot EV production facility.

In conjunction with the platform, an innovative product development process and on-demand production system will be tested and proven. Hyundai also aims to study new methods of vehicle development conducive to smart manufacturing while further increasing use of virtual reality (VR) technology in the vehicle development process.

Furthermore, HMGICs will facilitate collaboration opportunities with competitive local partners and educational institutions such as the Nanyang Technological University by conducting joint projects to pursue open innovation.
