Former GM Researcher Hired by Hyundai for Self-Driving Car Plant

Hyundai Motor Group has decided to hire Lee Jin-Woo, a former General Motors researcher, to help oversee its fully autonomous (self-driving) vehicle center. Why a former GM researcher?

The Main Advantage of a Hydroformed Vehicle Frame

Hydroforming has been in the manufacturing industries for a quite a while, but only recently introduced into vehicle production — comparatively speaking. A lot of 2016 trucks use hydroformed frames.
