Hyundai Motor Group has presented its HMG Smart City master model which incorporates underground autonomous mobility and advanced air mobility (AAM) concepts.
The HMG Smart City master model was presented at the 2022 World Cities Summit in Singapore alongside Hyundai’s smart city philosophy to be ‘human-centered, coexist with nature, and embrace the future’.
Hyundai said it hoped the model would serve as a guideline for developing smart and sustainable future mobility solutions.
“The HMG Smart City master model is our vision for a human-centered city that will revitalise urban communities. In the future smart cities, our ambition is for humankind to live with nature while embracing technology. Our air and ground mobility solutions will redefine urban boundaries, connect people in meaningful ways, and revitalise cities. We will continue to work with governments around the globe to bring our smart city vision to reality, while rapidly advancing capabilities in future mobility solutions.”
The HMG Smart City concept features a ‘human-centred surface layer’ and a ‘function-centred underground layer’.
Such a city would be connected through road infrastructure in the underground layer, so that all goods and services could be transported underground using autonomous mobility. This would free up above-ground space, which could be used to provide green space in the city centre.
Meanwhile, Hyundai envisions that people would travel between cities using advanced air mobility (AAM). The AAM vehicles would land and take off from ‘Hub 2.0’ towers, at the top of residential and office buildings.
The city’s primary power source would be hydrogen, which would be distributed through the smart grid pipelines.
