Infotainment systems are the heart of connected cars that provide various features such as navigation, self-diagnostics, entertainment and vehicle controls. "We will promote a new mobile convenience experience that can be felt practically by the combination of automobiles and ICT (information and communications technology)," said Hyundai's strategic division head Chi Young-jo.
Cooperation between Hyundai and Naver will be made in the field of purpose-built vehicles (PBVs), which are a ground-based eco-friendly mobility solution that provides customized spaces and services for passengers in transit. At CES 2020 in Las Vegas, Hyundai unveiled its first electric air vehicle concept, S-A1, through collaboration with Uber, the world’s largest mobility company, and presented its innovative vision for urban mobility solutions.
"As the mobility industry is an area that can make a lot of changes to various users, we will conduct various experiments with Hyundai Motor Group for mobility innovation," Naver CEO Han Seong-sook said. Naver is working on a three-dimensional map with precise information about traffic facilities that is vital for creating an environment in which self-driving cars can safely roam about.
In October, Naver joined hands with Continental Automotive Korea, the South Korean branch of German car parts maker Continental AG, and Drimaes, a domestic connected car software platform company, to develop an in-vehicle infotainment system that will provide differentiated services such as making restaurant reservations and remote digital payments.
