SEOUL -- An integrated next-generation infotainment platform, developed jointly by Hyundai Mobis, the parts-making wing of South Korea's Hyundai auto group, and its Swiss partner Luxoft, made its debut at an automotive trade fair in Germany. It is user-friendly by focusing on providing virtual personal assistants and artificial intelligence-based customized content.

Hyundai Mobis described its Mobis infotainment system (MIS) introduced at the International Suppliers Fair (IZB) held in Wolfsburg on October 11 as a future platform that integrates six screens including a digital gauge cluster system, an augmented reality (AR) head-up display, a center stack display (CSD), and three passenger displays.

Center stack displays display essential vehicle information to drivers and passengers and contain interactive content, navigation, cabin temperature controls, and music or entertainment information. Digital gauges create a dynamic screen for exchanging more specific and personalized information.

In-vehicle infotainment systems, which are seen as the heart of connected cars, provide various features such as navigation, self-diagnostics, entertainment and vehicle controls. Luxoft, a software engineering company based in Switzerland, has strengths in future SW services such as digital cockpits, connectivity, and autonomous driving systems.

As a crucial partner in the development of Hyundai Motor's self-driving technology, Hyundai Mobis has accelerated the development of sensors, cameras and other parts for autonomous vehicles and future cockpit technologies. The transition to future cars requires simplified clusters. Hyundai Mobis promotes its head-up display as a technology optimized for autonomous driving and electric vehicles. 

In 2020, Hyundai Mobis invested $25 million in Envisics, a British dynamic holography pioneer and auto head-up display developer, to develop an AR head-up display optimized for autonomous driving. The AR head-up display catches vehicle driving information with the road ahead in real time and projects it to the windshield. It can be implemented in geometrical and holographic ways. Digital holograms provide a wide viewing angle with software, even without a separate optical unit. It can dramatically reduce the volume.

In June 2021, Hyundai Mobi unveiled a "clusterless" head-up display that improved safety and convenience by raising essential driving information to the driver's eye level. The new device has integrated functions of a transparent visual display and an electronic instrument cluster, or digital dash.
