South Korean auto major Hyundai Motor Company has partnered TeamViewer, a leading global provider of remote connectivity and workplace digitalisation solutions to digitalise business operations and manufacturing processes for Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Center in Singapore (HMGICS).
The partners will cooperate to maximise digitalisation benefits in HMGICS’ smart factory using TeamViewer’s augmented reality (AR) platform, which includes mixed reality (MR) and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. The platform will support assembly, maintenance, quality management, logistics, client experience projects and workforce training.
They will also conduct joint research and development (R&D) activities in AR-powered smart factory operations, immersive digital experience for frontline workers and AI support for a future automotive factory.
Overall, the partnership aims to drive increased productivity, accuracy, speed and safety of frontline production workers. To leverage these benefits for the industry, the two parties will also pursue global joint marketing of smart factory and enterprise AR technology.
