Hyundai and Cisco team-up to create 'ultimate connected car'
Hyundai has joined forces with IT giant Cisco to develop autonomous car technology and other advanced connected car features
The move is designed to bring greater convenience and comfort to future buyers and will focus on four key areas – fully autonomous driving (as previewed by the self-driving Ioniq (LINK), optimised route guidance, intelligent remote servicing and a mobility hub that it is claimed will connect Hyundai cars to buyers’ homes and workplaces.
The two companies will work together to build a platform for connected cars that will enable them to communicate with road infrastructure, other vehicles, Internet of Things devices and the cloud.
