Hyundai-Kia Motors Unveiled Solar Charging System Technology

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryHyundai-Kia Motors heralded the era of the solar charging vehicle and accordingly disclosed the solar charging system technology recently. This is their will to gain an advantage in the competition for eco-friendly vehicles by extending mileage and reducing CO2 generation by commercializing the solar charging system technology using the light of the sun.
The solar charging system is being developed to support the main power. It increases fuel efficiency by charging not only eco-friendly vehicles including electric and hybrid ,but typical motor vehicles.
Hyundai-Kia Motors is developing 3 types of the solar charging systems, the 1st generation silicone-type solar roof, the 2nd generation translucent solar roof, and the 3rd body-type light lid.
The 1st generation solar roof to be applied to the hybrid model is a form of installing a mass-production silicone solar battery on the general roof. The 1st generation solar roof system can charge a battery approximately 30~60% a day depending on the weather and usage environment.
The 2nd generation translucent solar roof to be applied to the motor model for the first time in the world is a form of installing a translucent solar battery on the panorama sunroof as it is developed with transparent type and open-and-close type options, unlike the 1st generation solar roof, for customers who want openness.
For example, it is a method of securing transparency through a translucent roof panel and charging an internal battery, or an additional solar battery in a motor vehicle.
Lastly, the 3rd generation body-type light solar lid which is in the process of a precedent study to be applied to the eco-friendly model is a method of composing a solar battery as an all-in-one type on the lid
(bonnet) and roof steel plate of the car to maximize output.
The solar charging system consists of a solar panel, a controller, and a battery. In the solar panel, energy is generated as the sunlight is separated into an electron and a positive hole when it contacts the surface of the cell of a solar battery.
When a 100W solar panel is installed, 100W is generated per hour based on 1 Sun (noon in the summer, 1000 W/m2 deposits). In other words, it can store 100Wh energy when exposed to sunlight for 1 hour.
Hyundai-Kia Motor is currently putting spurs to the development of the 1st solar roof to apply it to eco- friendly vehicles to be released after 2019.
The researcher of the Environmental Energy Research Team that developed this technology explained that “it is expected that various energy generating technologies including the solar charging system will be connected to vehicles. Vehicles will be power stations actively generating energy, not machines that are just consuming energy passively. Now, the paradigm of car owners is switching from consumers to energy prosumers.”

Korea’s Consumer Sentiment Chills by Fastest Pace since Impeachment

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryAccording to data recently released by the Bank of Korea, South Korea’s composite consumer sentiment index (CCSI) for June deteriorated 2.4 percentage points from the May reading to 105.5, lowest since 100.8 in April last year.
The last time consumer sentiment soured so abruptly was in November 2016 following the legislative impeachment on sitting Korean president Park Geun-hye.
The index just managed to stay above the 100-threshold. A number beneath it means consumers are more negative than positive about the economy. After deteriorating for five months in a row, sentiment briefly improved last month amid expectations for eased geopolitical risk and revived inter-Korean economic ventures following the South-North Korea summit.
The indices measuring present sentiment for the economic conditions and outlook for the economy in coming months fell 5 basis points respectively to 84 and 96.
The worsening sentiment, which can further dampspending and domestic demand, and job data, as well as uneasiness on the external front due to escalated trade conflicts among economy majors of the U.S., China, and Europe, will likely to put the Bank of Korea in a greater bind. The bank has stayed pat on its rate at 1.50 percent despite increases in the U.S. Federal Reserve but cannot put off tightening any longer due to widening gap. The survey for this month was conducted from June 11 to June 18 on 2,200 households across the country, of which 1,958 households responded. (Source:KITA)

Robot Industry, the Biggest Beneficiary of the 4th Industrial Revolution

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryThe industrial robot parts produced in China and education services in China and Japan are emerging as the most promising in each industry. In order for Korean robot companies to expand into the global market, it is necessary to seek strategies to enter diverse markets such as joint technological development and investment with local companies by targeting core technologies and markets of promising fields.
In regard to the robot industry, which is emerging as the convergence of traditional manufacturing technologies and information and communications technology (ICT) for the future and the biggest beneficiary of the 4th Industrial Revolution, the global market conditions and prospects was presented along with analysis of the latest technological trend, while local companies were offered a substantive roadmap to expand into foreign markets.
According to the report, Global Robot Industry Market Trends and Strategies to Make Inroads, recently published it is essential to secure technological competitiveness in smart factories, machine learning, cooperative robots, artificial intelligence, etc. for invigoration of expansion into Asian global markets based on robust domestic demand with the number of sales.
Demand for industrial robots is on the rise due to the global companies’ efforts to modernize and automatize production facilities, improve energy efficiency, utilize new materials, and improve product quality. According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), a 15 percent annual growth rate is expected by 2020.
China is currently the world’s largest market with 30% market share, but its robot density is significantly lower than that of advanced countries, which leaves its potential still high. The robot sales in China are expected to increase by 140% by 2020. In particular, Korean companies have high potential to export to China in terms of core components such as controllers and speed reducers, which are difficult to produce in China. As of 2016, exports of robot parts to China amounted to KRW 36 billion, up 74% from the previous year.
Even in the advanced markets such as the USA and France, where there are no companies within the global top 10, Korean products have a good reputation for their cost-effectiveness and installation technology. Eastern Europe, India, Thailand, and Brazil are also emerging as new sources of demand despite relatively small market sizes at present, anticipating an annual growth of more than 20% by 2020. However, there is only a limited potential for entering into Japan and Germany where robotic technology for manufacturing is the most advanced.
Although it is not easy for Korean companies to narrow the technological gaps against leading global companies in the conventional robot industry, it is necessary to secure technologies related to smart factories and cooperative robots that are currently in the limelight.
Siemens and Adidas have completed the construction of a smart factory equipped with full-blown automation and intelligentization throughout the entire manufacturing processes based on ICT, and are accelerating technological development in the USA, China, and Japan. As machine learning is an essential technology for materializing efficient smart factories, Yaskawa Electric Corporation, a Japanese manufacturer of servos, motion controllers, AC motor drives, switches and industrial robots, has introduced a machine learning software that is capable of mastering a selected craftsmanship within two hours. As for cooperative robots for which the market growth is in full swing from US$100 million in 2015 to US$1 billion in 2020, it is necessary to preempt core technologies such as lightweighting and robot mobile technologies.
It is also expected that the robots market for global services will grow significantly. IFR expects service robots for special purposes and personal services such as housekeeping to grow by 20-25%, 30-35%, and 20-25% each year by 2020. In particular, it anticipates an explosive increase in demand for logistics robots including AGV, an essential item for smart factories, medical robots for surgery and treatments, and promotional robots to provide customers with guides or information.
Held last January in Las Vegas, United States, CES 2018 was dominated by robots equipped with AI. Aibo, a robotic pet produced by Sony, and Sophia, a humanoid robot developed by Hanson Robotics, and some others demonstrated great adaptation in everyday human life through dialogues, questions and answers, and games with human participants. Also, visitors flowed in and out all day at the booths exhibiting displaying housekeeping and entertainment robots.

The most promising field for Korean companies to expand is the educational robots market where global companies have yet to enter. In particular, Korean company’s technological prowess is evaluated positively in the countries with high demand for English education such as China and Japan. It is necessary, however, to develop technologies such as facial recognition for user verification, emotion recognition, speech recognition, and big data in order to ensure product differentiation and competitiveness.
In terms of strategies to make inroads into global markets, it is desirable to reduce the risks involved with overseas expansion by cooperating with local venture capital, accelerators, and start-ups. Meanwhile, American venture capitals’ investments in the U.S. robotics industry are increasing rapidly, while Japan is actively supporting alliances with overseas start-ups and accelerators for the advancement of service robots at the government level. In the case of Chinese companies, the demand for technological cooperation to develop sensors and artificial intelligence is high, thereby making it easy to promote joint research and development programs.
“The robots industry, which is experiencing a rapid increase in global demand, will become a representative food business in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution,” said Yoon Won-seok, an executive of the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA). “Korean companies need to seek global cooperation such as joint R&D with robot technology leaders and exchange of technology and investment. We will be able to enhance our competitiveness in the global robots market by seizing initiative of future-oriented core technologies such as cooperative robots and AI technologies based on our strengths in IT and manufacturing technology.”

Staying Ahead of the Competition in the Robot Industry through Cooperation and Service Robots

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryThe Korean government made a full-fledged start to advance the robot industry. According to the “New Government’s Industrial Policy Direction” announced in December last year, the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) recently held the Intelligent Robot Industry Development Strategy Conference at the Korea Institute for Robot Industry Advancement to discuss development plans for the robot industry.
While the world’s leading companies are competitively launching high-tech robots equipped with artificial intelligence, and the market for cooperative robots design to work with humans in industrial fields, is expected to grow rapidly from US$200 million in 2016 to JPY$ 3.24 billion in 2022. The United States and Japan invested US$22.5 million and JP¥ 29.41 billion in 2016, respectively. With the growing demand for service robots to improve the quality of life due to the increase of the elderly population and the demand for personalized service, the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) expects an average annual growth rate of 10% with US$ 14.9 billion in 2020.
On the other hand, the growth of the Korean robot industry is centered on large companies manufacturing automobiles and electronic appliances. This resulted in more than three times the difference in manufacture robot production with KRW 2.67 trillion and service robot production with KRW 770.4 billion in 2016, thus posing a concern that it will be fixed as manufactureroriented.
Therefore, the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) announced a plan in the conference to create leading markets and support growth centered on cooperative and service robots, which are expected to lead the global market in the future.
First, the companies equipped with smart factory construction and root companies will be provided with cooperative robots to improve the productivity of small and medium-sized manufacturers suffering from the burden with minimum wage and manpower shortage. In addition, the commercialization of service robots is planned for the five promising areas including smart home, medical, rehabilitation, disaster and safety, unmanned transportation, and agricultural robots.
In order to strengthen the innovation capability, MOTIE will concentrate its support on research and development of the three major robot parts including operation, sensing, and control, for the robot-mounted platform and the CNC control machine standard model, with a plan to specialize the research and support organizations by dividing them into three regions. This growth support measures include preparing cooperative robots safety guidelines, improving regulations that may impede the proliferation of robots, and expanding new jobs related to robot service.
Moon Seung-Wook, Director-General of MOTIE, urges the industry, academia, and research field to work together to contribute to the global competitiveness of the robot industry and to the creation of jobs for youths. The government also emphasized efforts to create tangible outcome through speedy promotion of development strategy regarding the intelligent robot industry.
