Hyundai to Launch NVIDIA Drive Infotainment and AI Platform
Hyundai and technology company NVIDIA have announced the roll-out of the NVIDIA DRIVE ‘connected car’ platform across all new models from Hyundai, Kia and Genesis from 2022 onwards.
All future models will feature in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems powered by NVIDIA DRIVE as standard.
NVIDIA DRIVE includes a hardware and software stack, enabling IVI systems to combine audio, video, navigation, connectivity and artificial intelligence (AI)-based ‘connected car’ services.
The partnership with NVIDIA will enable Hyundai to roll out its new ‘connected car operating system’ (ccOS) in future models. 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 centres.
Hyundai says that using the advanced NVIDIA DRIVE platform for its future models will allow the Group’s brands to offer customers a feature-rich experience that can be continually updated.
The NVIDIA DRIVE platform already underpins the advanced IVI systems found in the Genesis GV80 and G80. The companies have also been collaborating on an advanced digital cockpit, due to be launched in late 2021.
“At Hyundai Motor Group, we are committed to delivering greater value, safety, functionality and enjoyment over the lifetime of the car,” said Paul Choo, Senior Vice President of Electronics Tech Unit at Hyundai Motor Group. “The NVIDIA DRIVE platform is proven – it is scalable, energy-efficient and has the performance to support our next generation of software-defined vehicles.”
