Hyundai working to advance in-car operating system for connected cars
Hyundai Motor Corporation is looking to advance the development of their connected car Operating System (ccOS), which serves as the core platform technology for the brand's future connected cars.
The automaker said that the software is expected to optimize the high-speed transmission and reception of data within the vehicle. In addition, the ccOS will also control and run connected car infrastructure to ensure that connected cars can adjust in accordance to new innovations in safety, comfort, convenience and security.
Recently, the Korean automaker has established the Infotainment Software Development Team in its Namyang Research and Development Center dedicated to developing ccOS technologies alone.
Hyundai will also start exploring on different applicable connected car services, such as smartphone, intelligent remote support, fully autonomous driving, as well as the smart traffic functionality and mobility hubs.
Also included is the OTA (Over-The-Air) software update, which enables the clients to update their car's infotainment wirelessly, saving them a trip to the service center.
To further push the brand's Open Innovation plan, the automaker opened up a new Big Data Center in China. Hyundai also teams up with Cisco for a rapid development of the car network technology.
Under the brand's concept Hyperconnected Intelligent Car, the automaker said that the first ccOS-installed vehicles will be made available by 2020.
