TeamViewer, a leading global provider of remote connectivity and workplace digitalisation solutions, has inked a partnership with Hyundai Motor Company to digitalise business operations and manufacturing processes for the Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Center in Singapore (HMGICS).

TeamViewer and Hyundai Motor Company will cooperate to maximize digitalisation benefits in HMGICS’ smart factory using TeamViewer’s augmented reality (AR) platform, which includes mixed reality (MR) and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. The platform will support assembly, maintenance, quality management, logistics, client experience projects and workforce training.

The two companies will conduct joint research and development (R&D) activities in AR-powered smart factory operations, immersive digital experience for frontline workers and AI support for a future automotive factory.

Overall, the partnership will drive increased productivity, accuracy, speed and safety of frontline production workers. To leverage these benefits for the industry, the two parties will also pursue global joint marketing of smart factory and enterprise AR technology.

“We are pleased to have TeamViewer as a key technology partner for digital transformation in building a smart factory,” said Hong Bum Jung, Chief Executive Officer of HMGICS. “Developing an intelligent manufacturing platform is an important part of Hyundai's strategy to lead the future mobility industry. We are continuously innovating the overall mobility value chain, which includes presenting a vision for a future mobility smart factory. We expect the partnership will further accelerate our transition to smart factory and enhance its efficiency.

Sojung Lee, President for TeamViewer Asia Pacific, said, “We are excited to collaborate with Hyundai Motor Company in digitalising manufacturing processes and building an automotive factory of the future. As digital transformation has accelerated on the shopfloor, there is a growing need for AR solutions like TeamViewer Frontline that helps by optimizing manual work processes in industrial environments.”

HMGICS, the Hyundai Motor Group’s test bed and a global open innovation hub, aims to develop new EV business models, forge innovative partnerships, produce mobility products, and develop the Group’s intelligent manufacturing platform
