Baidu and Hyundai to develop connected car technology

LinkedIn +

Hyundai and Baidu have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on connected car technology. Hyundai will also participate in Baidu’s Apollo AV programme.

The first phase of the partnership focusses on the development of a connected car service that provides a range of in-car content, such as real-time traffic status and information about the user’s destination.

The two companies will also work on integrating Baidu’s Xiaodu In-Car OS into Hyundai models. Xiaodu uses AI to control the dashboard, smart rear-view mirror and infotainment of a car, in addition to voice controls for a wide range of actions including ventilation and door locks.

“Apollo’s industry-leading intelligent driving technologies and solutions provide end-to-end ecosystem support for our partners. We look forward to collaborating with Hyundai to achieve volume production of AI-enabled vehicles and to provide a safe, convenient and comfortable driving experience to our customers,” said Tan Su, general manager of Baidu internet of vehicles.”
