Hyundai Motor Group, which comprises the Hyundai, Kia and Genesis brands, will be deploying infotainment systems powered by NVIDIA Drive across its entire fleet — from entry-level to premium vehicles.
The Korean auto group makes more than seven million vehicles annually which are shipped around the globe.
Adding the NVIDIA technology from 2022 will give drivers software-defined AI user experience with constantly updateable software for more intelligent transportation.
Having worked with NVIDIA since 2015, Hyundai Motor Group developed a state-of-the-art in-vehicle infotainment system on NVIDIA Drive that shipped in the Genesis GV80 and G80 models in 2019.
The companies have also been collaborating on an advanced digital cockpit for release in late 2021.
AI and accelerated computing opens the door to new functionalities such as a software-defined AI cockpit that consolidates the collection of electronic control units and switches to perform basic functions, such as changing the radio station or adjusting temperature. With NVIDIA Drive, Hyundai can add crucial safety and convenience features to build smarter vehicles.
The Korean automaker will leverage the high-performance compute of NVIDIA Drive to roll out its new connected car operating system to every new Hyundai, Kia and Genesis vehicle from 2022.
