Hyundai will use artificial intelligence (AI) to develop the next generation of advanced safety systems.

It has signed a new partnership with MDGo, an Israeli start-up specialising in medical AI systems.

Together, the two companies will co-develop connected services that bring the worlds of health and automotive closer.

“MDGo possesses exceptional AI analysis technology optimized for driver safety,” said Youngcho Chi, president and chief innovation officer at Hyundai Motor Group.

“Through this technology, we expect a significant improvement in the emergency medical services of vehicles in the short-term while our long-term goal is to provide innovations in passenger experience of vehicle safety utilizing new technology that enable real-time physical monitoring.”

MDGo’s intelligent injury analysis system uses an elaborate AI algorithm that measures the attributes applied to the passengers in real-time and alert emergency services and medical facilities to a driver’s likely injuries following a road traffic accident.

Using the spectrum of sensors in the car and MDGo technology, Hyundai Motor will be able to send emergency services a wealth of data like injury level information and safety system activation. Crucially, the innovation will secure time that will enable emergency services to assess the required scale of response and deploy appropriately skilled medical personnel before arriving at the scene of an accident.
