New ADAS focuses on traffic in confined conditions
Hyundai Mobis has developed an integrated driver assistance system to help drivers in situations where most current systems fail. It combines several functions in one system and relies exclusively on ultrasonic sensor technology as well as special software logic.

Called Mobis Parking System (MPS), Hyundai Mobis’ new system combines three separate functions: Narrow Space Assistance (NSA), Reverse Assistance (RA) and Remote Smart Parking Assistance (RSPA). The development of the MPS is another building block in Hyundai Mobis' strategy to develop systems for autonomous driving, with autonomous driving technology specifically for urban areas. The system still works when there is only 16 inches - or 16 cm, the press release is not clear on this point - of space on either side of a vehicle for manoeuvring. This is the case, for example, in narrow, winding streets or cul-de-sacs.

With such a system, drivers no longer have to worry about passing a narrow road or facing a car in front in a cul-de-sac, even if they are inexperienced, the manufacturer advertises. With the MPS, the car is able to drive autonomously through a narrow street while avoiding obstacles, drive through the roll-up door of an underground car park or reverse into a cul-de-sac where two cars are facing each other.

Hyundai Mobis has developed this technology using proprietary software logic and mass-produced ultrasonic sensors. The technology takes advantage of the fact that radar and lidar sensors are useful for detecting distant objects or high-speed driving, while ultrasonic sensors are more suitable for narrow streets or underground parking. The ultrasonic sensors detect objects over a short distance, while the software logic and control system do the self-driving.

One of the core technologies of this system is Narrow Space Assistance (NSA). The car needs only 16 centimetres of additional space on both sides to drive autonomously through a narrow street. Another component of the MPS is Reverse Assistance (RA). It records the vehicle's route in real time and independently creates the reverse route at the push of a button. Steering wheel and vehicle speed are controlled automatically.

In addition to the MPS, various other technologies for
