Hyundai Motor Group plans to build an integrated data platform to help it develop new mobility services and boost its ‘digital transformation’, according to local reports citing a company executive.

Song Chang-hyun, head of Hyundai’s Transportation as a Service (TaaS) division, said the automaker was looking to develop a data platform to provide real time and tailored mobility services.

It would store data gathered from people using different types of vehicles, from those currently in use to future mobility vehicles including urban air mobility vehicles (UAMs) and “purpose-based vehicles” (PBV).

Speaking at an online developer conference, Song said “connected data is the basis of the platform. We plan to build a ‘data lake’ that utilises data collected in real time from UAMs, PBVs as well as passenger cars”.

Hyundai Motor recently unveiled its blueprint for future mobility covering three main areas – UAMs, mobility hubs and PBVs – as part of its smart city concept where people use special purpose vehicles to reach mobility stations and transfer to other destinations. The data platform would provide real time tailored mobility services for users.

Song added: “The plan is to provide ‘killer’ services for individuals” which would include information on shared vehicle conditions, optimised routes, indoor parking and recharging availability by using the data from different means of transportation.

Song said Hyundai planned to unveil a new open data platform next year which would include data intelligence, maps and identification modules for mobility and logistics services.
