Hyundai Robotics signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Hyundai E&C for “Joint R&D of Construction Robotics Technology” at the Hyundai Building in Gye-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea.

This MoU will allow both the companies to jointly carry out the following roles:

  • Robot development working at construction sites
  • Robot business of mobile service
  • Build up and development of core technologies for autonomous driving
  • Mid-long term business promotion growth

A research and development co-operation system will also be established by both the companies together. The system will allow demonstration and commercialization of developed technology at all times.

Hyundai Robotics and Hyundai E&C will jointly build “Autonomous Driving Integrated Software” by combining indoor and outdoor autonomous driving technologies, with their own strengths.

Dae-kyu Yoon, director of Hyundai Robotics,stated that through this cooperation, they’re going to expand the appliance of robot solutions to manufacturing and logistics, then to construction. He also added that they will continue to upgrade robots in the construction sector based on specialized technologies from each company in line with the era of the fourth industrial revolution.

Gu-yong Park, director of Hyundai E&C, commented that they’re going to introduce the concept of automatic production, like that of producing , to the development site and lead innovation in the construction industry by cooperating with Hyundai Robotics within the post-corona era.
