Among other things, all cars from the South Korean manufacturer should rely on their mid-decade operating system. ccOS be equipped with OTA updates. By then, the manufacturer expects, among other things, 20 million for its Connected Car Services registered vehicles. The data provided here will be processed through a new data platform, which is to provide services to customers and serve as the basis for their further development. Matching feature-on-demand services should be available from next year.

“Hyundai Motor Group’s data platform will not only be used to drive the car. It will also play an important role in increasing the comfort and variety of mobility experiences as it covers the entire life cycle of the vehicle., explains Eunsook Jin, Executive Vice President & Head of ICT Innovation Division at Hyundai. In the future, one will also help create a new mobility system that connects cars and other modes of transportation on the basis of data connectivity and scalability.

Hyundai also wants to invest heavily in software to strengthen its mobility technology capabilities. The equivalent of around 13 billion euros will be invested by 2030. Among other things, a new international program center is planned to accelerate the development of autonomous vehicles.

By developing a common hardware and software platform, the group would like to significantly reduce the time required for planning, design and production. Car parts should be used in different parts. For 2025, Hyundai announced two special electric car platforms called eM and it is up. These are based on Integrated seasonal architecture (IMA) of the Group. of eM-The platform should serve as the basis for electric vehicles in all areas and support, among other things, autonomous functions at level 3 or higher. of it isThe platform, on the other hand, is used in special electronic vehicles.

Hyundai’s new strategy also focuses on the integration of control units. Instead of updating the control units separately, as was the case before, the integrated control units should ensure greater efficiency during the update. In general, by integrating the control of low-level electrical components into high-level controllers, the total number of controllers can be significantly reduced while effectively adding new features. “To develop the growing number of electric devices with systemic efficiency, the Hyundai Motor Group has chosen to implement a domain architecture designed for groups, integrating the control units in the vehicle in the four fields of comfort, propulsion, infotainment and ADAS.”explains Hyung Ki Ahn, Vice President Electronics Development Group.

In order to use the amount of data from networked cars more efficiently, Hyundai is collaborating with the technology giant Nvidia, among others, to put its operating system on the system. Nvidia Drive bring to. This should enable the processing of large amounts of data at high speed, which comes from the car’s camera, radar and lidar sensors, among other things.

To advance autonomous driving functions, Hyundai Motor Group is developing the third generation of the integrated control unit, which should allow better cooperation between the control units as well as more speed. The new control unit will form the basis for the production of a more comprehensive series of vehicles with level 3 autonomy and in due time also for the commercialization of standard driving technologies. 4 and 5

In the future, the group thinks that the main concepts of the mobility industry will change fundamentally. Therefore the medium to long term strategy includes a new trend of software-based mobility services to seamlessly integrate different services. The Hyundai Group would like to handle such technologies with a global program center.
