Last week, Hyundai Motor Group Chairman Chung Euisun visited Boston Dynamics in the US to discuss the latest robotics technology trends with its executives.

In December last year, the world’s fifth-largest automotive group acquired an 80 percent stake in Boston Dynamics, which is famous for its dog-like robot Spot to leverage its robotics technology in other industrial areas.

Hyundai Motor said it plans to create synergy between robotics, autonomous vehicles, urban air mobility and smart factories to provide various mobility services both in private and public sectors.

Boston Dynamics is the established leader in developing agile, mobile robots that have been successfully integrated into various business operations.

The deal is also expected to allow Hyundai Motor Group and Boston Dynamics to leverage each other’s respective strengths in manufacturing, logistics, construction and automation.

Boston Dynamics is also entering the logistics automation market with the industry leading Pick, a computer vision-based depalletizing solution, and was likely to introduce a mobile robot for warehouses this year.
