Hyundai has launched the roll-out of the NVIDIA DRIVE ‘connected car’ platform across all new models from Hyundai, Kia and Genesis from 2022 onwards.
The NVIDIA technology enhances new connected car operating system (ccOS).
From entry-level to premium vehicles, all future models will feature in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems powered by NVIDIA DRIVE as standard, the car maker said in a statement.
The NVIDIA DRIVE platform will allow Hyundai to offer customers seamless and continuously enhanced in-vehicle AI user experiences. Hyundai, Kia and Genesis customers will therefore benefit from a feature-rich, software-defined AI user experience that is perpetually updateable.
“NVIDIA brought consumer electronic functionality and a graphics-rich user interface to infotainment systems more than a decade ago,” said Ali Kani, Vice President of Autonomous Vehicles at NVIDIA.
“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.”
The new ccOS will bring together the large amount of data generated by the vehicle and its network of sensors, as well as external connected car data centers, providing a more pleasurable and convenient experience for the driver and occupants.
ccOS also incorporates an integrated architecture for a new ‘connected car service platform’ (ccSP). ccSP is an open platform enabling a wide range of partners to provide relevant services to owners.
The ccOS will use NVIDIA’s software frameworks to implement four core IT competencies:
- ‘High-performance computing’, using NVIDIA GPUs to process large amounts of data inside and outside the vehicles and optimize system performance to support advanced IT technologies, such as deep learning.
- ‘Seamless computing’, which provides uninterrupted service regardless of the vehicle’s online or offline state. The vehicle connects with the surrounding infrastructure and smart devices to bring the user experience from external devices into the vehicle environment.
- ‘Intelligent computing’, providing intelligent customized services by properly identifying the driver’s intentions and condition.
- ‘Secure computing’, protecting the system by monitoring in-vehicle and external networks and isolating data associated with vehicle safety.
