Autonomous driving is continuing the brands evolve the technology that will make it possible. The best way to do it is through internal investigation or, if its cost is too high the other valid option is your outsourcing with third-party companies. Another method that also seems to be succeeding among the car brands, is the sign hit book engineers who have worked in projects of this caliber at other firms and can now be part of his knowledge to the new.
The latest to join this club is the South Korean Hyundai. As reported by the firm, they have hired a former General Motors engineer who worked in the American Group for more than ten years in the development of the technology needed to create their autonomous cars. With your step to Hyundai will continue dedicating itself to the same tasks, but will do so as supervisor of the work that engineers to conduct that are already involved in the project.
The lucky one is Lee Jin-Woo and with 47 years will lead the intelligent security technology center has created the Hyundai Group (next to Kia) for the design and development of their autonomous cars. This Center is newly created, but nonetheless it is devoid of talent and good engineers, as he announced the signing. For this reason, with the addition of Jin-Woo they go ahead with their strategy of excellence in all the fields associated with the automobile.
However with the arrival to the ranks of Mark Lee will not stop hiring star. Hyundai is aware that you will need to run more to match its position in the field of autonomous cars with other firms. Therefore would not surprise us anything in a matter of no time announcing a strategic alliance with any other brand. In addition, with the formalization of this external Alliance, it will also reduce significantly the costs of development of their technology for autonomous cars and therefore you can monetize it in less time than if one does.
