SEOUL, Sept. 20 (Yonhap) -- Hyundai Mobis Co., South Korea's biggest auto parts maker by sales, said Thursday it has developed a short-range radar that can be used to alert drivers to vehicles in their blind spots.

Hyundai Mobis said it plans to supply the radar to carmakers in South Korea beginning in 2020. At present, local carmakers have relied on foreign supplied short-range radars in their cars.

The company did not elaborate on the range, but such sensors used in cars generally tend to be effective to 50-70 meters.

Hyundai Mobis said it is moving to roll out three more radars -- a long-range, a medium-range and another short-range radar -- in the coming years as it seeks to secure key technologies for autonomous driving.

The car parts company is a core affiliate of Hyundai Motor Group, the world's fifth-largest automotive conglomerate.
