Until recently, our ideas of infotainment systems were limited to the car-audio system or navigation system. Nothing much beyond that. But, since Smart Phones arrived, things have become very different with regard to infotainment systems as well.
Suddenly your car starts to act like a computer. Then, people are talking about Google Android OS, which we thought to be a smartphone thing, being used as the infotainment system of a car.
The infotainment system for cars today is changing rapidly every day, like everything else in the 4th Industrial Revolution. Recently, we witnessed the birth of Connected-Car Commerce. Now, people can order items and spend their money in their car using their apps. This reveals the potential for a whole new level of the infotainment market.
Hyundai Motor Group will introduce something new every day in the ever-changing infotainment market. All this in the name of more comfortable and safer driving experiences for our customers.
High Precision Traffic Information The DMB(Digital Multimedia Broadcasting) network used to be the channel for providing traffic information. Now, we are going to use the IP network to provide more information faster and more accurately. The drivers will be able to receive more accurate traffic accident information earlier on, and this is just the beginning.
Interior Environment Control Using IoT This new technology will allow the drivers to control the interior environment of their cars, which are parked in the parking lot, while the drivers are working in their offices or staying at home. With this, the drivers can now experience the most comfortable driving environment.
Intelligent Remote Maintenance Now your car will remind you about the upcoming part replacement schedule or part failures if there are any. Then, it will book a car repair center for the maintenance and other services. You can even update the vehicle controller to enhance the performance of the vehicle.
Electronic Payment within the Car If you need to pay for something while driving, this new technology will do it for you inside the car, immediately. Each individual vehicle is issued with an ID, and this ID is connected with the internal infotainment system so that the drivers can pay for gas or parking fares conveniently.
