The South Korean carmaker will apply the Nvidia Drive "connected car" platform to all of its upcoming models from Hyundai Motor Co., its independent Genesis brand, and Kia Motors Corp. starting from 2022, the company said in a statement.
All Hyundai, Kia and Genesis models will be equipped with Nvidia Drive from 2022 onwards.
Nvidia's in-vehicle platform will enable Hyundai Motor's vehicles to feature advanced audio, video, navigation and other connected auto services enabled by artificial intelligence, the automaker said. It is also working with Nvidia to develop an integrated digital cockpit that combines the infotainment system, cluster and head-up display, with an aim to deliver the information in animated 3-D graphics.
ccOS developed in-house by Hyundai Motor Group for all future models Offers perpetually updatable, software-defined in-vehicle infotainment systems and potential for a wide range of "connected car" services. "Now, we are once again transforming these systems through the power of AI - helping Hyundai Motor Group increase safety and value, along with enhancing customer satisfaction, throughout the lifetime of the vehicle". Hyundai has high expectations for the new system. And from now on, the two will collaborate for Hyundai's entire fleet of vehicles.
Connected cars aim to provide vehicle occupants with an optimized driving experience by linking a large amount of data that occurs while the vehicle is driving. Drive also includes a constant connection to a data center (cloud connectivity) and the ability for Hyundai to push over-the-air software updates to the system over the life of the vehicle. It's also an open platform (with deep learning capabilities) enabling other partners to provide relevant services to owners.
