Hyundai Motor Group is collaborating with Cisco, an expert in IT and networking equipment, as part of its connected car technology development.
Hyundai Motor will initially focus on the next generation of in-vehicle networks at the core of connected car technology, optimizing the transmission and reception of data within the vehicle. The technology will not only transmit and receive data faster, but also allow each subsystem inside the vehicle to communicate more effectively; this is essential to enabling future connected cars to incorporate the increasingly complex features that transfer ever-growing amounts of data in real time.
Hyundai Motor and Cisco will jointly develop a testing environment for vehicle simulation. The two companies will cooperate on basic research to thoroughly analyze the flow of data and verify new technologies for connected cars. Moreover, Hyundai Motor will invest in cloud, big data analytics and connected car security technologies, with huge investment in research and development.
Hyundai Motor vice chairman Euisun Chung and Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins recently paid a visit to the startup that created the simulation testing environment for the connected car project in order to share and discuss the advancement in the research, and showed interest in fostering a startup-friendly environment in Korea.
