Hyundai’s Supernal to Run eVTOL Aircraft on Microsoft Cloud

Hyundai Motor Group’s urban air mobility subsidiary, Supernal has announced a collaboration with Microsoft to run its advanced air mobility (AAM) products on the Microsoft cloud platform.

This collaboration will enable Supernal to use Microsoft Azure to run simulations at scale in order to advance autonomy and accelerate its timeline to commercialising electric vertical take off and landing (eVTOL) Aircraft.

Jaiwon Shin, President of Hyundai Motor Group and CEO of Supernal said:

“In ushering in a new frontier of transportation with Advanced Air Mobility, Supernal has an obligation to ensure safe and secure deployment of eVTOL vehicles. We are pleased to collaborate with Microsoft, a software leader, in responsibly advancing AAM autonomous systems and information-sharing.”

During the first phase of the collaboration, Microsoft will provide Supernal with access to Project AirSim, a simulation platform powered by artificial intelligence.

Project AirSim uses Azure to generate environmental and sensory data that can train machine learning models and simulate all phases of flight in variable weather patterns. This will enable Supernal to safely build, test and train autonomous aircraft.

Ulrich Homann, corporate vice president Cloud + AI at Microsoft said:

“Air transport is a key pillar in the democratisation of mobility, connecting more people, goods and places through safe flight experiences. With the Microsoft Cloud, Supernal can unlock the computing power it takes to build, validate, and deploy electric air vehicles at scale, spurring the commercialization of advanced air mobility solutions.”
