Hyundai Motor Group strengthens robot services provided at smart office building in Seoul
・Hyundai Motor Group introduces DAL-e Delivery and parking robots to “Factory Seongsu”, a robot-friendly office building in Seoul ・Hyundai Motor and Kia’s DAL-e Delivery autonomously travels within buildings, providing quick and efficient delivery services to building users.
・DAL-e Delivery is equipped with facial recognition technology that boasts 99.9% accuracy using artificial intelligence (AI) developed by Robotics LAB.
・Hyundai WIA’s parking robot is capable of autonomously parking vehicles and moving vehicles in tight spaces, improving parking space utilization efficiency.
・With the “smart parking management system” developed by Hyundai WIA, it is possible to manage up to 50 parking robots simultaneously. ・Starting in the third quarter, we will provide an EV charging service using the cooperative operation of parking robots and automatic charging robots (ACR) from Hyundai Motor and Kia.
・Starting with Factorial Seongsu, the group aims to create
comprehensive robot solutions by expanding the range of robot services provided to various building facilities.
[Image:×2600.jpg] Seoul, June 20, 2024 Announcement – Today, Hyundai Motor Group (hereinafter referred to as the Group) announced that Hyundai Motor and Kia will deliver the “DAL-e Delivery” robot and Hyundai WIA will deliver the “Parking Delivery” robot at the smart office building “Factory Seongsu”. announced that they had developed a robot. These robots will provide innovative services at the robot-friendly office building in Seoul. The group also releases videos about the robots it has developed.
[Video 6:] Dong Jin Hyun, managing director of Hyundai Motor and Kia’s Robotics LAB, commented: “With DAL-e’s full-scale delivery service, we aim to make Factorial Seongsu the first building facility to utilize our comprehensive robot solution. We plan to make technological
enhancement one of the main evaluation criteria for spatial
The group is proposing a development plan for a comprehensive robot solution. This involves using various robots and facial recognition systems within smart building facilities, and Factorial Seongsu is the first step. We also plan to develop a “multi-cooperative management system” to manage multiple delivery robots within this comprehensive robot solution. You can watch a video of the facial recognition system here.
[Video 7:] DAL-e Delivery
[Video 8:] A notable feature of DAL-e Delivery is its autonomous driving ability to move within building facilities. DAL-e Delivery seamlessly connects with elevator and door management systems and determines the optimal route in real time, allowing delivery services to be performed quickly. Equipped with an 11.6-inch high-resolution display, it shows service status in an easy-to-understand manner.
When a customer orders a drink through a mobile app, DAL-e Delivery picks up the drink at the basement floor cafe and delivers it to the office space or conference room of the customer’s choice. Once the package arrives at its destination, we use cameras and facial recognition technology powered by artificial intelligence (AI) to identify the recipient. This facial recognition technology was developed by Robotics LAB and boasts an accuracy of 99.9%. After identifying the recipient, the storage tray automatically advances to deliver the drink.
DAL-e Delivery has a high loading capacity and can carry 16 cups of coffee and up to 10 kg of luggage at once. The group expects the DAL-e Delivery service to significantly improve convenience for building users. We also plan to increase the number of machines introduced, and are considering expanding our services to include document and mail delivery services in the future.
parking robot
[Video 9:] Hyundai WIA’s “Parking Robot” can park vehicles weighing up to 2.2 tons at a speed of 1.2 meters per second through autonomous operation. The robot is designed to move in any direction, allowing it to move vehicles even in tight spaces where parking is difficult. This means more parking spaces in the same location, significantly improving space utilization efficiency.
Shindan Kang, Managing Director and Head of Hyundai WIA’s Mobility Solutions Planning Group, said: “Hyundai WIA’s autonomous parking robot was successfully commercialized by Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Center Singapore (HMGICS) last year. We are confident that you will experience the most advanced parking robot technology at Factorial Seongsu.”
When a customer uses their car, the parking robot retrieves the car from a designated parking spot and autonomously parks the car when the customer returns. This is the first time that an autonomous parking robot has been commercialized in South Korea.
This autonomous parking system consists of two flat, wide robots that slide under the car, then lift it up and move the wheels. It is only 110mm thick and is compatible with all vehicles. The parking robot is equipped with a camera that accurately recognizes the vehicle’s wheel size and lift position. It also uses LiDAR sensors to detect people in the vicinity, preventing accidents and improving safety.
Smart parking management system and automatic charging robot (ACR)
[Video 10:] Hyundai WIA is also developing a “smart parking management system” that can manage up to 50 parking robots simultaneously. This system allows parking robots to move through optimal paths and efficiently place multiple vehicles. In the future, the system will be able to detect and respond to both human-parked vehicles and unmanned parking lot situations.
Starting in the third quarter of this fiscal year, we will provide electric vehicle (EV) charging services through the cooperative operation of parking robots and automatic charging robots (ACRs) from Hyundai Motor and Kia. This maximizes customer convenience.
In this service, autonomous parking robots transport vehicles to charging areas. ACR identifies the license plates of cars in the area, checks the car’s battery condition, and then charges it. ACR has a charging port recognition function that applies deep learning, and uses this function to recognize the charging port of an EV. Charger insertion and removal by ACR is automatic depending on the vehicle’s battery status. Once the charging process is complete, the parking robot will return the car to the parking lot.
