Garrett Motion Launches Predictive Control Software with Hyundai Motor Company
Leverages Automotive Engineering Expertise to Deliver Innovative Energy and Health Management Software Solutions
Garrett’s advanced MPC technology is able to predict and preemptively optimize how a system operates in real-world conditions, enabling all types of light and commercial vehicles, whether ICE, hybrid, battery electric, or hydrogen fuel cell powered, to improve performance, efficiency and reliability. Despite its potential, MPC has been rarely used in the automotive industry primarily due to the complexity of its implementation and computational requirements. However, Garrett created a solution to overcome these challenges by providing a complete toolchain to make the implementation and deployment of the technology much faster and straightforward, allowing efficient implementation on current and future vehicle platforms. The rollout of Garrett’s embedded MPC for use in HMC’s passenger vehicles is another fundamental step in bringing this technology to the global automotive industry for all types of vehicles.
The launch by Garrett encompasses Hyundai's all-new i20 N and is expected to include other vehicle models equipped with HMC’s new 1.6-liter turbocharged engine. Garrett’s next-generation software enables OEMs to optimize vehicle performance and deliver superior fuel economy and emissions by predictively optimizing boost control and health management control. It has been integrated within the existing electronic control unit (ECU) and comes with a calibration tool that empowers OEMs to configure and calibrate Garrett’s software to realize breakthrough results in performance as well as reduced development efforts and costs.

“The mass deployment of our predictive control technology in HMC’s passenger vehicles further expands our longstanding partnership with the global automaker and demonstrates our ongoing success in leveraging Garrett’s core competencies to deliver innovative software solutions,” said
Full Suite of Advanced Controls &
Garrett has a comprehensive library of modular model-predictive controls that can be used at the vehicle and powertrain supervisor level or at a sub-system level. With the use of its own optimization algorithms that allow this complex technology to be efficiently integrated into existing ECUs, Garrett provides MPC technologies for light and commercial vehicles across numerous applications, including:
- Boost and airpath control and health management for turbocharged ICE and hybrid vehicles
- Predictive energy and thermal management for hybrid, battery electric and fuel cell vehicles
- Custom controls and monitoring software for other complex automotive systems
Garrett’s unparalleled expertise in handling multivariable controls in increasingly complex vehicle systems throughout all real-world conditions provides OEMs with a single turnkey solution for energy management and powertrain optimization as well as overall vehicle health management for all types of vehicles. Additional information on Garrett’s advanced controls and system optimization software is available on the company’s website and can be found here.
