In addition to the comprehensive proving ground in Seosan, Korea, there are three winter proving grounds (Sweden, China and New Zealand). They are engaged in in-vehicle verification of new technologies, such as chassis, trim,autonomous driving, connectivity and electrification, and leading the development of future mobility solutions.
The seosan proving ground, which tests and evaluates core future mobility technologies, occupies a 1,090,000 m² (about 340,000 pyeong) lot. It is home to the best facilities among global automotive suppliers.
We are conducting in-vehicle verification on the 14 state-of-the-art test tracks, including the first autonomous driving & radar test track in Korea with a 5G communication environment, the world’s longest tunnel test track, and special roads (circular, climbing and wide low-friction roads). Also, we constructed four test buildings, focusing on battery durability, performance and environment-friendliness, to conduct component performance tests.

To improve winter performance related to braking and steering and ADAS, we are operating winter proving grounds in Arjeplog, Sweden, Heihe, China, and Wanaka, New Zealand.
They all have ABS test tracks, circular tracks and asymmetrical test tracks on icy roads thicker than 1 m, and conduct in-vehicle tests for new technologies and safety at a very low temperature dropping to -40 ℃.

To transform itself from a hardware-centered automotive parts company into a software-centered technology company, Hyundai Mobis is reinforcing its software R&D competence.
Since 2018, we have been operating the Software Academy, which provides software-related job training simultaneously for more than 400 researchers in the Technical Center in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do. We are planning to undergo a hiring increase from 800 software designers in the domestic Technical Center to 4,000 by 2025.
In addition to fostering and reinforcing software manpower in the domestic Technical Center, we have turned the Indian research center into a global research base specializing in software. We also became the first in the domestic parts industry to organize the big data team in 2018, and we are actively leveraging big data and artificial intelligence for our R&D.
SWITCHING ITS FOCUS FROM HARDWARE TO SOFTWARE,
HYUNDAI MOBIS IS BOOSTING R&D COMPETENCE BY OPERATING THE SOFTWARE EDUCATION SYSTEM,
WHICH WILL LEAD THE ERA OF FUTURE CARS, REINFORCING DESIGN MANPOWER,
AND EXPANDING THE BUSINESS OF THE GLOBAL BASE.
The Software Academy of Hyundai Mobis offers intensive training, specifically, convergence software courses specializing in automotive driving, such as sensors and logic (perception, decision and control).
It is operating not only communication technology courses, like big data utilization & image recognition, but also original training courses not provided by general IT companies, ranging from sensors, coding, algorithm design and the principles of autonomous vehicle operations to mechanical structure.
Hyundai Mobis is fostering high-caliber software design manpower through these courses so that all researchers can lead projects on their own, and we will create synergy effects between our hardware competence and software technology,which we have accumulated over the years.
Welcome to HYUNDAI MOBIS Open Sources Release Center.
