Your next car may be a 'high-performing computer on wheels'

Hyundai's self-driving vehicle will use big data and analytics to keep you on the road and connected

Hyundai is working on a new connected car it calls a "high-performing computer on wheels" that will tap big data and analytics for proactive service and constant connection.

The company will collaborate with leading global IT and networking companies to develop a self-driving "hyperconnected and intelligent car," it announced Tuesday, with a focus on connecting it to other cars, the office, and the home.

Four key areas will help the new cars make the most of data. A smart remote maintenance service, for example, will remotely diagnose and fix vehicle issues before they become apparent, Hyundai said.

Autonomous-driving capabilities will be another key element, as will what Hyundai calls "smart traffic" features to help reduce congestion and make trips quicker. Finally, Hyundai's Mobility Hub will provide security and data management for smarter interactions with the car's surroundings.

The company didn't offer any specifics on the technological details, and it couldn't be reached for comment. What it did say is that R&D will focus on cloud technology, big-data analytics, connected-car security and in-vehicle networks for high-speed transfer of large amounts of data.

Between 2014 and 2015, the number of consumers who said they'd be willing to switch vehicles for better connectivity almost doubled, according to a September 2015 report from McKinsey and Co.
