SEOUL -- Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE), a state-owned research institute in Sweden, tied up with the Korea Automotive Technology Institute, a state research body specializing in automotive parts, to develop core technologies for mobility such as power semiconductors for future automobiles.

The two organizations will promote joint research in key future mobility technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, fuel cells, and autonomous driving, as well as high-efficiency next-generation power semiconductors, according to the Korea Automotive Technology Institute (Katech).

"We will contribute to strengthening the competitiveness of future car technologies in South Korea by expanding human, technology, and information exchanges between the two institutions," Katech president Her Nam-yong said in a statement on November 9. The institute has been involved in a number of projects at home to develop new technologies in autonomous driving and fuel cell vehicles.
