Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis brands are changing the way to develop new products worldwide. The new method is based on software. The end goal is to give people the ability to improve their cars' features from anywhere in the world and at any time by using constantly improving software technology.
To ensure that its customers' vehicles are always up-to-date, the Hyundai Motor Group will begin equipping all new models released after 2023 with the ability to receive Over-The-Air (OTA) software upgrades. This modification applies to both electric and conventionally powered automobiles. By 2025, any car owned by the group will be able to get software updates wirelessly. Next-generation EVs will use a proprietary Connected Car Operating System (ccOS) to maintain and improve safety, comfort, connection, and driving performance throughout the vehicle's entire lifespan.
A key feature of the emerging digital environment is that users can customize it to their specific requirements (features on demand).
Connected automobiles require high-performance semiconductors to collect and handle the massive amounts of data they generate. By working with NVIDIA, a leader in artificial intelligence and data processing, ccOS will be fine-tuned for lightning-fast operations.
The company plans significant spending on computer software soon. It is expected that by the year 2030, a new global development center will have been constructed to allow for hardware and software technology integration. The group's mission is to speed up the software-based transformation, expand internal capacity, and solidify its position as the industry's preeminent provider of mobility and logistics services.
The Group's advanced mobility solutions, such as self-driving cars, flying taxis, and drones, will also be able to use information from linked vehicles.
By establishing uniformity across platforms, we can reduce expensive iterations and speed up the release cycle. The eM and eS modular electric vehicle platforms will see production vehicles based on them by 2025. The organization's IMA (Integrated Modular Architecture) framework will be used to design the new EV platforms. eM is made for all kinds of electric vehicles, and it can increase their range by up to 50% compared to the technology that is already out there.
eS was made to be a platform for skateboards that is both modular and expandable so that it can be used with PBVs.
Hyundai Motor Group is creating a third-generation integrated controller using cutting-edge, high-performance semiconductors to further state of the art in autonomous driving technology. The third-generation integrated control unit enables the group's progress into level 3 mass-produced autonomous vehicles, and levels 4 and 5 will soon be commercialized. Improved heat dissipation, reduced noise levels, and cheaper production are also in the works for the unit.
The group's mission is to adapt transportation to clients' future needs. At the same time, the company is committed to improving its well-known Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis brands so that they can better serve modern customers.
