NVIDIA Drive will soon come as standard to all models in the Hyundai Motor Group. This includes all Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis models.

NVIDIA Drive is NVIDIA's computer platform for cars. On the most basic level, it provides the means for automakers to run infotainment features. On the other end of the spectrum, NVIDIA Drive is also a platform for autonomous driving.

However, Hyundai Motor Group isn't using NVIDIA Drive to enable self-driving cars, at least not for now. Instead, they are relying on NVIDIA Drive to enable "audio, video, navigation, connectivity and AI-enhanced connected car services."

Specifically, Hyundai Motor Group plans to use NVIDIA Drive as a platform to create a new connected car operating system (ccOS) that will be shared across the entire fleet.

To that end, Hyundai Motor Group mentioned that they chose NVIDIA Drive because of its scalability and longevity. They also talk about providing over-the-air updates so that their cars stay modern.

Ali Kani, vice president of autonomous vehicles at NVIDIA said:

NVIDIA brought consumer electronic functionality and a graphics-rich user interface to infotainment systems more than a decade ago. Now, we are once again transforming these systems through the power of AI – helping Hyundai Motor Group increase safety and value, along with enhancing customer satisfaction, throughout the lifetime of the vehicle.

For now, specific details about how NVIDIA Drive will be implemented are scarce but Hyundai Motor Group said they would release more information in the near future.
