SEOUL, Jan. 11 (Yonhap) -- Hyundai Mobis Co., the world's seventh-largest auto parts supplier by sales, said Thursday it will develop new technologies for electric and autonomous vehicles in the coming years.

At the Consumer Electronics Trade Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Hyundai Mobis said it will develop the "e-Corner Module," the first-ever integrated, modular platform of its kind, designed for electric and other eco-friendly vehicles, by 2021.

The module incorporates a motor, e-Damper, Brake by Wire and Steer by Wire technologies in a compact package that can be installed in each wheel, eliminating the need for a traditional chassis and central engine, and giving electric or fuel cell vehicles easy-to-set-up four-wheel drive capabilities, it said.

To stay ahead of competitors in autonomous vehicle technologies, Hyundai Mobis outlined its plans to develop several smart systems.

The smart systems include the Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA) and the Automatic Valet Parking (AVP). RSPA uses ultrasound to enable a car to park itself in a nearby space with the touch of a button after the driver leaves the car. AVP enables a vehicle to park itself in a remote space with no input from the driver, the statement said.

Hyundai Mobis aims to complete the development of AVP technology by the end of this year, it said.

To push forward the development projects, the company will invest 10 percent of its auto parts sales in research and development every year until 2021, up from the current 7 percent.
