The partnership with Nvidia will enable the Hyundai Motor Group to introduce its new Connected Car Operating System (ccOS) in future models. The ccOS, developed internally by the Hyundai Motor Group, will bring together large amounts of data generated by the vehicle and its sensor network, as well as by external connected vehicle data centres, and manage driver interaction. ccOS also includes an integrated architecture for a new Connected Car Service Platform (ccSP). This is an open platform that allows a wide range of partners to offer relevant services to owners.
The operating system will use Nvidia's software programming framework to implement four core IT competencies
- High Performance Computing, where Nvidia GPUs are used to process large amounts of data inside and outside the vehicle and optimise system performance to support advanced IT technologies, such as Deep Learning, where computers draw on and implement experience.
- Seamless Computing, which provides uninterrupted service regardless of whether the vehicle is online or offline. The vehicle is connected to the surrounding infrastructure and intelligent devices to integrate the user experience from external devices into the vehicle environment.
- Intelligent Computing, which provides intelligent, customised services by detecting the driver's intentions and state.
- Secure Computing, which protects the system by monitoring vehicle internal and external networks and isolating data related to vehicle safety.
In addition, recent findings in the fields of artificial intelligence and accelerated data processing have laid the foundation for next generation vehicles. These can benefit from new functions, capabilities and improved safety features that can be added during the lifetime of the vehicle. With a centralised, software-defined computer architecture, future vehicles can be updated throughout their life cycle so that they are equipped with, among other things, the latest digital cockpit technology.
