South Korea’s leading automotive components manufacturer, Hyundai Mobis, said it would invest KRW5.5bn (US$4.9m) in Chinese artificial intelligence (AI) start-up DeepGlint, according to local reports.

DeepGlint develops 3D image analysis and pattern recognition technologies and is said to be a leader in surveillance and business analysis systems. The company reportedly has developed facial recognition technology that can identify one person out of a billion from a distance of 50 metres.

With its partnership with DeepGlint, Mobis is looking to develop technologies that recognise in-vehicle movement and facial expressions, along with pattern analysis to provide tailor-made connected services. It wants to develop systems that recognise passenger emotions based on analysis of facial expressions using deep-learning technologies, with a view to offering tailored connected services.

Meanwhile Hyundai Motor revealed its new Sonata mid-size passenger car, due to be launched this month, which uses a third-generation platform made of strengthened steel supplied by Posco which is 55kg lighter than its predecessor, helping reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
