Hyundai said in a statement that it developed the Smart Cruise Control-Machine Learning (SCC-ML) technology for the first time in the world that allows a partial driverless driving customized to a driver's driving pattern.

The SCC-ML adds AI technology to the SCC function that is one of the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technologies to allow a vehicle to drive at a set speed with a certain distance from other vehicles.

Under the SCC-ML, a vehicle's machine learning function collects pieces of information through cameras and sensors about a driver's driving pattern, such as the distance from other vehicles, how fast the driver gains speed, and how quickly the driver responds to changed road conditions.

Hyundai said the SCC-ML can realize the Level 2.5 autonomous driving technology beyond the Level 2 technology that includes a function of lane change.

It noted that the company and its affiliate Kia Motors would apply the newly developed technology to new models in a selective manner.
