Hyundai and Cisco Collaborate For Internet-Connected Car Technology

The partnership is aimed at the development of “hyper-connected and intelligent car” concept.

 

As per Reuters reports, leading automobile giant Hyundai Motor and tech giant Cisco have teamed up to develop internet-connected car technology.

Hyundai Motor said on Tuesday that it will partner with Cisco Systems to develop Internet-connected car technology, part of the automaker’s push to develop “high-performing computers on wheels”.

Auto and tech firms are increasingly forming alliances to expand services that hook cars up to Internet, particularly as the race to develop self-driving cars heats up.

Hyundai said Vice Chairman, Chung Eui-sun, met Cisco Chief Executive, Chuck Robbins, in Seoul and agreed to co-develop in-vehicle network technology for a high-speed transfer of large amounts of data.

“The cooperation is part of Hyundai Motor’s wider strategy to establish an industry-leading connected car platform through collaboration with leading technology partners,” it said in a statement.

Other alliances include Toyota Motor Corp’s expansion this month of a five-year-old partnership with Microsoft Corp to develop new Internet-connected vehicle services for owners and dealers.
