Hyundai Motor and TeamViewer, a provider of workplace digitalisation solutions, have entered into a partnership to digitalise business operations and manufacturing processes for the former’s innovation hub in Singapore.
The partnership will leverage TeamViewer’s augmented reality (AR) platform, which includes mixed reality (MR) and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, to maximise the digitalisation benefits in the smart factory of the hub called Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Center in Singapore (HMGICS).

“We are continuously innovating the overall mobility value chain, which includes presenting a vision for a future mobility smart factory. We expect the partnership will further accelerate our transition to smart factory and enhance its efficiency.”
As part of the collaboration, Hyundai Motor and TeamViewer will organise joint activities for research and development (R&D) in AR-powered smart factory operations, AI support for a future automotive factory, and immersive digital experience for frontline employees.
The partnership aims to boost frontline production workers’ productivity, accuracy, speed and safety.
TeamViewer Asia Pacific president Sojung Lee said: “We are excited to collaborate with Hyundai Motor Company in digitalizing manufacturing processes and building an automotive factory of the future.
“As digital transformation has accelerated on the shopfloor, there is a growing need for AR solutions like TeamViewer Frontline that helps by optimizing manual work processes in industrial environments.
“Our collaboration with Hyundai Motor Company will further solidify our position as an enterprise software provider with specialized solutions for the manufacturing industry and it will strengthen our role as a leading player in the industrial metaverse space.”
HMGICS is focussed on developing new electric vehicle (EV) business models, making innovative partnerships, produce mobility products, and build Hyundai Motor’s intelligent manufacturing platform.
