An important scientific cooperation agreement was signed this week in Seoul between the Korean Government and the french government. The research teams from the two countries will collaborate on several themes, including autonomous cars, the wearables and medical equipment. Research projects must start as early as next year and Renault teams will work with LG Electronics, Renault Samsung Motors and Hyundai Mobis on key components of the autonomous car of tomorrow, namely radars and communication modules.
3 billion won for the autonomous car, the wearables and e-health
If autonomous cars Google or German manufacturers capture the attention of the media, all countries which have at least a global automakers working on the subject. And if the independent Hyundai are less media in the West as the Google Car, for several years, KAIST (Korean higher Institute of science and technology) and Hyundai organize autonomous car competitions. The opportunity to see various models of Korean autonomous cars at work. Certainly some cars are found in comical situations during the events, but the Korean researchers already mastered a number of driving situations.
ected by this public/private joint research effort. The first theme of the autonomous car therefore meet Renault, its Korean subsidiary, Renault Samsung Motors, LG Electronics and Hyundai Mobis, the ‘mobile and systems’ supplier for Hyundai group to work on new components for future cars without driver. Communication systems and radar are evoked.
The second theme of research relates to the wearables (or computer) to wear. The Korean electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute will work with STMicroelectronics to develop components for wearables as well as new components for automotive. Finally, last topic referred to as a result of these franco-coreennes negotiation, the medical equipment. The french Voluntis will develop new applications with several schools of Korean medicine, including software for analyzing data (Big Data) for a personalization of treatments increased.
