Hyundai Motor Group said Oct. 21 it has developed an artificial intelligence-based autonomous driving technology and will apply it in its models.
The South Korean automaker has developed the smart cruise control-machine learning technology, in which the vehicle analyzes the driver‘s driving patterns and allows partial autonomous driving under the smart cruise control function, it said in a statement.
It is the first time for a carmaker to develop an AI-based self-driving technology in the world’s automobile industry, Hyundai said.
To use the SCC function, which is a core technology of the group‘s advanced driver assistance system, the driver has to set the driving speed, distance from other vehicles and other conditions, it said.
The SCC-ML technology allows Level 2.5 autonomous driving technology in a vehicle, the statement said.
Hyundai Motor and its affiliate Kia Motors said they plan to gradually apply the technology to their new models.
