Hyundai will use the 5G service to collect quality control data

Hyundai Motor Group (HMG) will use Singtel’s 5G mobile data network to improve quality control processes at its ‘testbed’ factory in Singapore, the telecoms company said.

The Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Centre in Singapore (HMGICS) will use Singtel’s 5G campus network with mobile edge core solutions to obtain ‘massive bandwidth’ that it will use to optimise quality in manufacturing.

HMGICS is an innovation hub for research and development in mobility ‘ecosystems’, a term the industry uses to refer to the rooting of the entire manufacturing process within interconnected IT systems.

Singtel said Hyundai would be supported by the telecoms company’s capabilities “in AI, IoT as well as Paragon, all in one orchestration platform to manage and analyse the manufacturing process and performance of the networks.
