Hyundai Motor Group, a global leading car manufacturer, developed the Smart Tag System as the first of a series of smart factory projects. The Smart Tag System allows real-time wireless control of the car manufacturing process, eliminating the need to manually check car types and specifications on the assembly line. The Smart Tag is equipped with a wireless communication chip that uses a frequency band unique to each factory, sharing car production and location data with in-factory equipment.
The two-way communication between a car on the assembly line and an array of production equipment allow automation of tasks, lowering defect rates on multimodel production lines. The data produced during the process is then gathered at each facility and saved in the Smart Tag for real-time analysis of data through big data analytics and AI to provide feedback to the production factory, completing the loop of a smart factory environment.
