Hyundai has appointed a former GM researcher to head up its effort to develop self-driving vehicles.

The company announced on Monday that it has hired Lee Jin-woo to oversee its Intelligent Safety Technology Center, a research facility that will produce solutions for both Hyundai and its Kia Motors affiliate. Lee served as R&D lead researcher for GM’s autonomous driving technology program since 2006.

In a prepared statement, Hyundai indicated that its new center “will not only enhance existing Advanced Drive Assistance System technologies but also conduct research into artificial intelligence related self-driving car technologies with the aim of commercializing those technologies.”

Lee holds a post doctorate from Cornell University and studied at both the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology and Seoul National University.
