Hyundai Motor has opened its first global Big Data Center in Guian, China. The center will gather and analyze massive volumes of data collected from the company’s connected cars.
Big Data Center in China lays the foundation for a China-focused Car Cloud, leveraging expertise in connected car technologies gathered through years of Hyundai Car Cloud operation. Hyundai Motor also has high expectations for its self-developed Connected Car Operating System (ccOS) that optimizes the high-speed transmission and reception of data within the vehicle and Connected Car Service Platform (ccSP) seamlessly connecting drivers to IoT services. Tapping into such proprietary technologies, the company plans to spur the establishment of connected car services tailored for Chinese customers.
The location for the center was strategically chosen to take advantage of access to local IT companies, such as China Unicom, to develop, analyze and process multiple data streams positioning Hyundai Motor at the forefront of the automotive big data revolution. It is expected that the new facility will allow Hyundai Motor to expand significantly its R&D capabilities in connected cars, advance its market projections, and enhance business operations in China.
