Hyundai refers to the movement toward increased SDV use as the “Software Age.” The technology will be employed in both electric and conventional gas-powered cars, allowing updatable programming to control and modify a vehicle’s parts, characteristics, and features. For this by 2030, the Hyundai Motor Group will have invested $12.6 billion.
The manufacturer stated that it expects 20 million vehicles worldwide to be a member of the Group’s Connected Car Services by 2025 as it unveiled its roadmap for software-defined vehicles. According to Hyung Ki Ahn, vice president of Hyundai Electronics Development Group, the first automobiles that fully embody the company’s dedication to the SDV era will be released in 2023. These SDVs will provide enhanced parking and autonomous driving capabilities as well as greater environmental identification.
Hyundai’s new SDV future is centered around its in-house created Connected Car Operating System. The Connected Car Operating System platform employs an integrated controller to speed up software updates. Hyundai and NVIDIA are collaborating to put an enhanced version of Connected Car Operating System onto the high-performance semiconductor NVIDIA DRIVE. Faster, better semiconductors are necessary because of the new vehicle functionalities’ huge data-collecting and processing needs. Hyundai will give the Genesis G90, an advanced Highway Driving Pilot before the year.
