Hyundai Motor Group has presented its roadmap for connected car development. The company will collaborate with leading global IT and networking companies to develop its hyper-connected and intelligent car concept.
Along with the roadmap, Hyundai Motor Group plans to embark on a new era of connecting the car to life. This initiative will provide users with a hub of knowledge, plus the ability to analyze and utilize all information to enhance owners’ lives.
The roadmap outlines four main service fields that will help develop smarter, more intelligent cars that can receive and utilize data faster than ever before. The mid- to long-term development focus includes a range of key features, including smart remote maintenance services; autonomous driving; smart traffic; and a connected mobility hub that provides security and data management for all elements of the connected car.
In the short- to mid-term, Hyundai Motor Group will concentrate on technologies related to smartphone connectivity and smart home services, while establishing the core infrastructure that will provide the foundation for future developments. In order to incorporate increasingly complex features in its roadmap, Hyundai will prioritize early investment in these selected areas.
The main areas of R&D focus include in-vehicle networks for high-speed transfer of large amounts of data, and cloud technology to collect vehicle data and provide computing power. Hyundai will also research big data analytics that will allow large data sets to be used effectively, and it will invest in connected car security, essential for protecting the integrity of a complicated platform hosting varying technologies.
