Hyundai accelerates ccOS development

Hyundai Motor is accelerating development of its advanced ccOS (connected car Operating System), the core platform technology for its future connected cars.

The highly sophisticated software will optimise the high-speed transmission and reception of data within the vehicle to support increasingly complex features that will lead the connected car market.

ccOS will control and operate the key aspects of connected car infrastructure; In-Vehicle Framework, Infotainment Framework and Connectivity Framework, to ensure connected cars can adapt to new innovations in safety, comfort, convenience and security.

Hyundai Motor’s strategy to develop its own platform optimised for connected car operation is centred on advancing how vehicles communicate with their internal and external environments. Hyundai Motor will also work on other connected car technologies and related services such as smartphone and smart home connected services, intelligent remote support, fully autonomous driving, smart traffic functionality and mobility hubs.

The first ccOS-installed vehicles are set to be available in 2020 under the concept ‘Hyper-connected Intelligent Car’.

Advancing its ‘Open Innovation’ plan, Hyundai Motor and Cisco are also working to develop car network technology, another core platform requirement to enable the rapid development of connected cars. Hyundai Motor has also opened a new Big Data Centre in China to reinforce its venture toward connected car development.
