Hyundai continues its moves in the fields of new technologies and vehicle development without slowing down. Hyundai, which continuously contributes to the automotive industry, will accelerate the design processes and increase the quality thanks to the new generation Virtual Reality (VR) system. Introduced at the brand's Namyang R&D Center in South Korea, the new system will directly affect the designs of future models, allowing more than one designer to work at the same time. zamaiming to save momentum Hyundai same zamwill now achieve a reduction of up to 15 percent in annual R&D costs.

The system can instantly simulate interior and exterior design elements, lighting, colors, all materials to be used, and even virtual environments. It also enables Hyundai development teams to closely monitor all operating principles of vehicle components such as doors, tailgate, engine hoods and windscreen wipers. The VR system also offers a number of tests on vehicle ergonomics and aerodynamics.
Albert Biermann, Head of Research and Development Department of Hyundai Motor Group, said: “The virtual development process is a necessary step to speed up the production stages and also to react immediately to the needs of our customers. We want to increase our competitive power in mobility by using new generation virtual technologies. In addition, we will increase the quality and profitability by continuing our R&D investments ”.
Hyundai used this system for the first time in the design stages of its truck named HDC - 2019 NEPTUNE Concept Class 6, which was introduced at the North American Commercial Vehicle Show in October 8.
