Cisco and Hyundai Motor Company announced the production of a next-generation, hyperconnected car at CES 2018. Hyundai will feature this new in-vehicle network in their premium 2019 vehicles.
Both the companies were working to develop a vehicle with a new approach to communication since 2016. The companies have created a flexible and more secure platform that offers a path to innovate and build on smart-vehicle solutions. The features of the platform are:
- The platform provides ‘over-the-air updates’ and accelerate the time it takes to bring new capabilities to market.
- It uses a Software Defined Vehicle (SDV) architecture. This new, in-vehicle network sets the stage for adaptive technologies.
- It offers integrated, multi-layer security, as well as full end-to-end networking – allowing for true sensor integration.
- It will also enable new, high-speed services through an integration layer between software and legacy hardware.
- The development of first-generation solutions to enable 1Gbps Ethernet will significantly increase the in-vehicle bandwidth.
- The solutions will provide flexibility, lower costs, and improved security.
- By enabling IP and Ethernet services, legacy buses and devices will work together with the new Ethernet attached devices and services.
