Hyundai Mobis will be highlighting technologies it is developing to make the car of the future safer, more user-friendly and greener as the industry races towards autonomous and electrified vehicles at CES 2018.

Hyundai Mobis has invested approximately 7% of its annual parts revenue into its research and development efforts over the past three year with plans to increase this investment to about 10 percent of expected revenue by 2021. Approximately half of that amount goes into advanced research and development, with heavy emphasis on autonomous sensors, biometrics and information and communications technology.

At the center of the company’s environmental offerings is the e-Corner Module, its first integrated, modular platform specifically designed for electric and other eco-friendly vehicles.

The company says the Mobis technology has the potential to change the industry since it incorporates a motor, e-Damper, Brake by Wire, and Steer by Wire technologies in a compact package that can be installed in each wheel. That means it does away with the need for a traditional chassis and central engine and gives electric or fuel cell vehicles four-wheel drive capabilities.

The change to no chassis would most likely require for the redesign of lifts, equipment and alignments in order to accommodate the evolution.

In addition, this change also allows OEMs more freedom in car design, including ample space for battery or hydrogen storage, as well as improvements in ride quality and stability and energy efficiency. Hyundai Mobis aims to complete development of the e-Corner Module by 2021.

Team Falken driver Justin Hall secured a first-place finish in the 4500 class racing with the Wildpeak R/T race tires in the 4500 class and Edwin Abd of ABD Motorsports took third in the 4400 class racing with the Wildpeak M/T race tires.

At the start of the event, Hall was unable to participate in the qualifying race due to one of his crank seals pushing out. To resolve the issue, he put silicone on it and let it set overnight so it would be good to go for the main races. Not participating in the qualifying heat put him behind the competition in the first heat. Team Falken said starting from the back was only a minor inconvenience for Hall. Throughout the whole race, the silicone held up well and Justin was able to pass the competition in the first heat, securing a first-place lead.
