Hyundai Motor Group has unveiled its vision for the future of mobility space by presenting the “Mobile Living Space” concept.
In a video released on Jan. 30, the company shows a scenario in which mobility and buildings are seamlessly connected, allowing passengers to move freely between the two spaces without being exposed to the outside world.
The concept proposes using the car as a living space even when it is not driving, with functions similar to those in a home or office.
The company has been researching and developing this concept since it unveiled the “Active House” technology video in 2020, which showed a similar idea of combining buildings and mobility.
The latest vision is significant because it contains concrete technologies and patents that can be applied in practice.
Hyundai Motor Group has developed a gate structure and scenario that extends the mobility cycle to dock with the building, allowing easy docking and undocking.
The company has also developed technology to adjust the vehicle’s height so passengers can get in and out without bending down. It has also developed rubber connectors that keep out the outside air without damaging the car or the building.
Hyundai Motor Group has filed patents for ten technologies that enable mobility and building connectivity in key domestic and overseas markets.
