Hyundai Mobis and Ottopia already have experience developing autonomous systems. Now, they are coming together to accelerate teleoperation capabilities.

Hyundai Mobis and Ottopia earlier this week announced a partnership to develop a teleoperation platform to spur the commercialization of autonomous driving systems.

In the framework of their partnership, Hyundai Mobis and Ottopia will work together to introduce an end-to-end remote mobility assistance solution where Ottopia provides all the core software technologies for teleoperation while Hyundai Mobis provides the hardware/software platform and system integration as a global Tier1.

The companies said the remote assistance platform will be able to be scaled for a broad range of use cases to facilitate the rapid commercialization of autonomy in transportation, logistics, construction, mining, agriculture, and last-mile delivery.

Hyundai Mobis has remote access experience

Hyundai Mobis said its Remote Mobility Assistance (RMA) is a platform for autonomous and automated vehicles that enables vehicle and convenience services deployed on a high-performance ECU with 5G multi-modem technologies and Human-MachineHuman-Machine Interfaces.

Vehicle services may include teleoperation, remote diagnostics, over-the-air updates, and fleet management whereas convenience services focus on passengers. The platform is designed as a multi-partition architecture that can scale from vehicles without passengers like trucks and industrial vehicles to vehicles with passengers like robotaxis and shuttle buses.

Hyundai Mobis is the global no. 6 automotive supplier, headquartered in Seoul, Korea. The company's products include various components for electrification, brakes, chassis, and suspension, steering, airbags, lighting and automotive electronics. Hyundai Mobis operates R&D headquarters in Korea, with four technology centers in the United States, Germany, China, and India.

Ottopia’s software has helped cut costs

Ottopia's teleoperation software enables autonomous vehicle fleets to do things they otherwise cannot while allowing their developers to dramatically cut R&D costs and comply with regulatory requirements. With Ottopia, humans in a remote center can safely monitor, guide and directly control fleets of vehicles.

The core of its patented technology provides a reliable low-latency and high-bandwidth link between vehicles and remote centers, at scale. Ottopia's product leverages proprietary networking, video, control, safety and cybersecurity technologies.

“Hyundai Mobis Remote Mobility Assistance is an innovation platform for autonomous vehicles where OEMs and mobility service providers (MSPs) will be able to innovate and bring new services to their end customers unleashing enormous potential for new business models. Through our partnership with Ottopia we bring Teleoperation as first of many services to be deployed on RMA.” says Abdul Khaliq, head of Future Mobility Transformation SW of Hyundai Mobis.

“This partnership allows autonomous and automation developers in all industries to cut their R&D spend, commercialize faster and meet regulatory requirements for deployment.” says Amit Rosenzweig, Founder and CEO of Ottopia. “It really is a game changer for autonomy and we're very excited to work with Hyundai Mobis in bringing it to life.”
