Hyundai Motor Advances ‘Future Mobility’ Vision at Seoul Motor Show

Hyundai Motor has revealed further developments for its future mobility strategy by demonstrating a suite of industry-leading technologies at the 2017 #seoulmotorshow.

The next generation of convergent technology under development includes a newly-developed Connected Car Service Platform (ccSP) platform and smart, hyper-connectivity innovations that focus on linking cars to customers’ lives, blurring the line between mobility, and customers’ living and working spaces.

Connnected Car Service Platform connects customers and cars

Hyundai displayed its latest vision for connecting cars to customers’ lives by announcing plans for its self-developed Connected Car Service Platform (ccSP) platform. This platform will allow customers to connect seamlessly to a variety of other IoT services offered by telecommunications providers and global appliance services.

Interconnected services will blur the lines between mobility, living and working spaces, with ‘Home to Car’ voice controlled operations allowing drivers to start their cars and open or close doors through speech. Meanwhile, ‘Car to Home’ options will connect customers with smart home services, including home lighting, climate control, and audio systems.

Controlling vehicles via voice assistant is something that could become common-place in the not-too-distant future. We are working with various companies in Korea and around the world to ensure that all of our platforms are compatible and that #hyundai customers will be able to interact with the Internet of Things in ways that have never before been possible.

The connectivity services demonstrated at the show will be available commercially in the next few years, with ‘Home to Car’ services expected in 2018 and ‘Car to Home’ operations available in the following year.

Connected Car roadmap reveals key service objectives

Hyundai presented key elements of its Connected Car roadmap at the 2017 #seoulmotorshow. Building on its philosophy of caring for customers, #hyundai revealed the four main objectives that will ensure smart connected technologies provide greater convenience and efficiencies for drivers.

  • Proactive Caring – Regular monitoring of a car’s diagnostic information, paired with analysis of Big Data can help to diagnose potential problems before they become an issue, enabling remote proactive maintenance of vehicles.
  • Smart Convenience #hyundai plans to offer customers regular updates to vehicle software and features. This step will ensure customers always benefit from the latest version even, when the car is being driven, ensuring the best customer experience and the latest vehicle and data security.
  • Cost Efficiency – #hyundai aims to bring cost-saving efficiencies to customers by analyzing their driving patterns and fuel economy history. This will provide highly accurate ‘distance to empty’ advice and recommended routes that deliver best fuel economy (and battery life when applicable).
  • Connected Efficiency - Smart application management will ensure connectivity-reliant actions happen at optimum times, such as automatically updating software while the car is charging. Further efficiencies will be gained through monitoring factors that may impact on the driver each day, providing guidance, information or warnings as appropriate. For example, a weather checking service can deliver information to the driver to advise on the optimal time to wash the car.
Autonomous IONIQ experience in virtual reality

Visitors to the 2017 #seoulmotorshow are invited to experience a driverless journey via immersive Virtual Reality (VR) simulators at the #hyundai Motor stand. A virtual trip in an autonomous IONIQ demonstrates how the advanced piloting capabilities of Hyundai’s latest technology enable the car to navigate without driver input, through the most challenging situations safely.

With a sleek design resembling the rest of the IONIQ line-up, the autonomous IONIQ is one of the few self-driving cars being developed to have a hidden LiDAR system in its front bumper instead of on the roof. The car’s advanced self-driving systems are kept as simple as possible by integrating existing functions from the production model, including the Smart Cruise Control system’s forward-facing radar and Lane Keeping Assist cameras.

The Smart House concept brings car to life

Hyundai presented its Smart House concept at the 2017 #seoulmotorshow, revealing the potential reach of its advanced Future Mobility technologies. The working Smart House exhibit provides a vision of how the car could be integrated with the daily lives of users, converging mobility and customer’s living and working spaces.

The concept suggests how cars could integrate with our living spaces when docked, before becoming a mobile living space when customers need to move around. Hyundai’s vision sees customers living, without interruption, while on the move as the comfort, convenience and connectivity features of the car and the home are combined into ‘one space’.
