Hyundai Development Company (HDC) is utilizing Qualcomm technology in building smart cities and other related structures.

 
The real estate development and construction company said on Monday it is working with San Diego-based Qualcomm to develop smart city, smart home and smart construction solutions, going beyond smart home solutions like CCTVs and wall pads.
 
The Korean company wouldn't provide specific details about the nature of the business relationship with the U.S. company and the level of cooperation with it.
 
HDC said expanding the role of technologies will improve the lives of city and building residents.  
 
“The latest technical agreement will be a stepping stone for [HDC] to secure diverse and convenient services that could be applied to apartments and mixed-use developments," said a HDC spokesperson in a statement.  
 
HDC is currently working on the development of land in Yongsan, central Seoul, and around Kwangwoon University in Nowon District, northern Seoul.  
 
HDC I-Controls, which specializes in intelligent building system, is also taking part in the collaboration. The HDC subsidiary, 28.95 percent owned by HDC, develops environmentally friendly construction in the IT industry and provides IT solutions.  
 
Qualcomm, a provider of semiconductor products for wireless communications, has a wide range of experience and technology for smart cities based on 5G and internet of things (IoT), according to HDC.
