Hyundai Motor announces connected car roadmap

Hyundai Motor Group has presented its roadmap for connected car development and says it will collaborate with leading global IT and networking companies to develop its ‘Hyper-connected and Intelligent Car’ concept.

Hyundai Motor Group has presented its roadmap for connected car development and says it 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 also says it plans to embark on a "new era of connecting the 'Car to Life', as cars are increasingly at the centre of our lifestyles". This initiative will provide users with a hub of knowledge, plus the ability to analyse and utilise all information to enhance owner's lives.

Hyundai says the 'Hyper-connected and Intelligent Car' goes beyond converging communications technology and the vehicle to become a 'High-Performing Computer on Wheels'. This is a concept of connecting the car to other cars, the office and to the city.

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.

More specifically, the smart remote maintenance service will remotely diagnose and fix vehicle issues before they become apparent. Autonomous driving provides utmost safety by connecting a vehicle to city and road infrastructure. Smart Traffic reduces congestion, speeds-up journeys and minimizes social costs by considering traffic and road conditions. Lastly, the connected Mobility Hub will feature a mobile hub with strong computing power to make daily life and interaction with the car and its surroundings smarter.

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.

Hyundai Motor Group will bring the future of connected cars closer by co-developing connected car technologies through 'Open Innovation' collaborations with global companies. The connected car roadmap will concentrate on industry-leading research and development to foster new talents that will change the way customers interact with their cars and the world around them.

With previous experience in this field, Hyundai Motor Group has already established the Cloud system, which puts the core infrastructure of connected cars into place. Meanwhile, a group of data scientists have helped Hyundai Motor Group to specialize in data analytics since 2013. The company is utilising big data in various areas to enhance R&D and products, and also to gather customers' opinions.
