TeamViewer has partnered with Hyundai Motor Company to digitalise operations and manufacturing processes for the Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Center in Singapore (HMGICS).
Together, TeamViewer and Hyundai Motor Company will use TeamViewer’s augmented reality (AR) platform, which has mixed reality (MR) and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, to optimise the benefits of digitalisation in HMGICS’ smart factory. The platform will assist projects related to the client experience, logistics, quality management, assembly, and labour training.
The two businesses will collaborate on research and development (R&D) projects in immersive digital experiences for front-line workers, smart factory operations powered by AR, and AI support for future automotive factories.
The collaboration will boost the front-line production workers’ productivity, accuracy, speed, and safety. The two parties will also seek global joint marketing of smart factory and enterprise AR technology to capitalise on these advantages for the sector.
HMGICS Chief Executive Officer Hong Bum Jung said TeamViewer is a critical technological partner for the digital transformation of creating a smart factory.
“Developing an intelligent manufacturing platform is an important part of Hyundai’s strategy to lead the future mobility industry. We are continuously innovating the overall mobility value chain, which includes presenting a vision for a future mobility smart factory. We expect the partnership will further accelerate our transition to smart factory and enhance its efficiency.,” he stated.
According to TeamViewer Asia Pacific President Sojung Lee, the company is excited to work with Hyundai Motor Company in digitalising manufacturing processes and creating a cutting-edge automotive facility.
“As digital transformation has accelerated on the shopfloor, there is a growing need for AR solutions like TeamViewer Frontline that helps by optimizing manual work processes in industrial environments. Our collaboration with Hyundai Motor Company will further solidify our position as an enterprise software provider with specialized solutions for the manufacturing industry and it will strengthen our role as a leading player in the industrial metaverse space,” Lee said.
HMGICS, the Group’s test bed and a worldwide open innovation hub, intends to create new EV business models, make ground-breaking alliances, create mobility goods, and build the Group’s intelligent manufacturing to transform the whole mobility value chain platform.
