1. POSCO DX to develop self-driving unmanned facilities

  • POSCO DX, the IT services subsidiary of POSCO Holdings Inc., has signed an MOU with Aiyoubot, a domestic LiDAR specialist.
  • The collaboration aims to develop autonomous driving and collision prevention systems utilizing LiDAR sensors for industrial equipment such as AGVs, AMRs, cranes, and raw material transport vehicles.
  • The systems are intended to enable unmanned operation on industrial sites while ensuring safety by preventing collisions and other accidents in advance.
  • LiDAR sensors, which perceive shapes and spaces by measuring the time difference between emitted laser beams and their reflection, will assist in autonomously recognizing nearby obstacles and individuals, enabling equipment to decelerate or stop accordingly.
  • POSCO DX will oversee the development of autonomous driving applications and collision prevention systems, while Aiyoubot will supply its LiDAR sensors known for their simplified design, compactness, and resilience to external environmental factors.
  • The collaboration plans to initially deploy these systems at steel mills and battery production plants, with intentions to expand to other industrial sites such as external production sites, plants, and construction sites in the future.

This partnership signals a move towards integrating advanced technology, specifically LiDAR, into industrial operations for safety and efficiency. The intention to supply these systems to various industrial sites beyond steel mills and battery plants suggests the potential for broader adoption across different sectors.

2. Mobileye set to ship at least 46 million new assisted driving chips

  • Israeli automotive tech company Mobileye announces orders for 46 million EyeQ6 Lite assisted-driving chips over the next few years.
  • The EyeQ6 Lite chips will be deployed in cars globally, with launches scheduled for mid-year.
  • Nimrod Nehushtan, Mobileye’s executive VP of business strategy and development, states that the orders represent the current business won and will be rolled out gradually.
  • Customer names for the EyeQ6 orders are not disclosed due to non-disclosure agreements, but Volkswagen and Porsche are among Mobileye’s known customers.
  • Mobileye’s shares rose over 6% following the announcement.
    The EyeQ6 Lite is designed for vehicles with basic assisted driving features like automated cruise control and lane-changing, not for fully self-driving vehicles.
  • Automakers are increasingly adding basic driver-assistance features to differentiate themselves amid rising competition.
  • The EyeQ6 Lite chip offers increased computing horsepower and is manufactured with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co’s 7-nanometer process.
  • It can read text phrases on road signage and includes an 8-megapixel camera with a 120-degree lateral field of vision.
  • Mobileye plans to launch a more advanced assisted-driving chip, the EyeQ6 High, in volume production early next year.

3. Hyundai, Kia work on revolutionary autonomous indoor delivery services

  • Kia, along with Hyundai, unveils the latest version of the DAL-e Delivery robot, designed for autonomous delivery in complex environments like offices and shopping malls.
  • The new DAL-e Delivery features four Plug & Drive modules combining an electric motor with environmental recognition sensors, steering, suspension, and braking systems, enabling speeds up to 1.2 m/s and autonomous navigation in crowded areas.
  • Improvements include a square column design with rounded corners for driving stability and lighting in the cargo area for easy item handling.
  • The robot autonomously navigates between floors of buildings, considers elevators and door control systems, and optimizes delivery routes in real-time.
  • Advanced AI face identification technology, developed by Kia’s Robotics Lab, allows automatic recognition of recipients, enabling seamless delivery without the need for passwords.
  • The DAL-e Delivery is set for practical deployment by IGIS Asset Management in their new smart office building ‘Factorial Seongsu’ in the second quarter of this year.
  • Additionally, Apple is reportedly developing home robots, including a table-like device with a rotating display and a mobile robot for household use, entering a competitive market already populated by several companies.
