Hyundai Motor Group and Baidu Fortify Partnership to Expedite Next Generation Connected Car Era

Hyundai and Baidu strengthen cooperation for connected car technologies

Hyundai Motor Group (Hyundai) and Baidu today announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for Internet of Vehicles (IoV), signaling their commitment to strengthening cooperation on next-generation connected car technologies. The newly-signed MOU will see the existing partnership — between the world's fifth-largest auto-making group and the leading Chinese language Internet search provider — reinforced to accelerate development of disruptive innovations in vehicle connectivity.

As a first step on the partnership's roadmap, Hyundai and Baidu will co-develop a connected car service that provides a wide range of in-car content — real-time traffic status and live information about the user's end-destinations for example — based on big data, maps, artificial intelligence (AI) and portal services. Through such a service, Hyundai and Baidu expect to meet the growing demand for connectivity services among consumers in China and beyond.

Hyundai and Baidu will also collaborate on creating Hyundai Motor Group vehicle models embedded with Xiaodu In-Car OS for volume production. This plan aims to advance the application of AI in IoV through next-generation technologies and product innovation. Released at the Baidu Create 2018 AI developer conference earlier this month, Xiaodu In-Car OS is an AI-based IoV solution that is open platform, end-to-end and multi-mode. Currently, it consists of four components: dashboard, smart rearview mirror, infotainment and an in-vehicle robot.

Xiaodu In-Car OS was demonstrated at Baidu Create 2018 by a Kia Sportage. Its in-vehicle robot displays a wide range of emotions to interact with the driver and serves as a hub for seamless communication with the vehicle. The robot interactively responds to passengers' spoken commands for various functions such as navigation, ventilation, media and door locks. In addition, Xiaodu includes a safety feature which warns drivers when it detects fatigue and careless driving.
