The company has R&D networking in Korea, North America, Europe, China and India. Hyundai Mobis did not reveal details about the job addition at its India center.
Hyundai Mobis said its Indian technical center has over 700 local talents specializing in ICT and software. Hyundai Mobis has over 5,000 R&D employees in R&D network in Germany, China, the US and India.
Hyundai Mobis will set up and operate the second technical center in a new IT complex adjacent to its first technical center in Hyderabad, India. The company did not disclose details on its investment plans in India.
Hyundai Motor said in 2019 that it plans to invest 41 trillion won or $34.65 billion in mobility technology and strategic investments by 2025.
The major items that the Indian center works on are mostly automotive electronic parts, such as IVI applications, airbag control units (ACUs), electronic braking systems (MEB5) and the AUTOSAR platform.
The first technical center will validate and develop software for mass-production products, including IVI (In-Vehicle Infotainment), chassis control systems (MDPS, ABS, electronic suspension, etc.) and airbag control units (ACUs), and develop custom products for local customers.
The second technical center will focus on the development of control logic for autonomous driving and parking and recognition algorithms for autonomous driving sensors (camera, radar, lidar).
Hyundai Mobis also runs Mobis Ventures innovation center in Silicon Valley, the US, and Shenzhen, China, in an effort to discover global startups.
