Kia Motors and the Hyundai Motor Group as a whole have been working on developing and integrating the next big thing in terms of automotive technology. Alternative fuel systems have more than a decade to stand on, and self-driving cars are still in the testing rounds. Before we see mass-produced vehicles that drive themselves, perhaps putting smart devices in vehicles is the first step to take. Many vehicles have made use of Amazon’s Alexa smart device to help consumers stay connected to their vehicles, and for the past few years, Kia Motors has hinted at equipping vehicles with artificial intelligence. Now, the newest partnership between the Hyundai Motor Group and NVIDIA, all future Hyundai and Kia models will come equipped with a “connected car” infotainment system and AI platform.
“NVIDIA brought consumer electronic functionality and a graphics-rich user interface to infotainment systems more than a decade ago…Now, we are once again transforming these systems through the power of AI, helping Hyundai Motor Group increase safety and value, along with enhancing customer satisfaction, throughout the lifetime of the vehicle.” – Ali Kani, Vice President of Autonomous Vehicles at NVIDIA
