Hyundai Motor Group (Hyundai) and Baidu announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for Internet of Vehicles (IoV), signaling their commitment to strengthening cooperation on next-generation connected car technologies.

As a first step on the partnership's roadmap, Hyundai and Baidu will co-develop a connected car service that provides a wide range of in-car content such as real-time traffic status and live information about the user's end-destinations, for example, based on big data, maps, artificial intelligence (AI) and portal services. Through such a service, Hyundai and Baidu expect to meet the growing demand for connectivity services among consumers in China and beyond.

Hyundai and Baidu will also collaborate on creating Hyundai Motor Group vehicle models embedded with Xiaodu In-Car OS for volume production. This plan aims to advance the application of AI in IoV through next-generation technologies and product innovation.

Released at the Baidu Create 2018 AI developer conference, Xiaodu In-Car OS is an AI-based IoV solution that is open platform, end-to-end and multi-mode. Currently, it consists of four components: dashboard, smart rearview mirror, infotainment and an in-vehicle robot.

Xiaodu In-Car OS was demonstrated at Baidu Create 2018 by a Kia Sportage. Its in-vehicle robot displays a wide range of emotions to interact with the driver and serves as a hub for seamless communication with the vehicle. The robot interactively responds to passengers' spoken commands for various functions such as navigation, ventilation, media and door locks. In addition, Xiaodu includes a safety feature which warns drivers when it detects fatigue and careless driving.

Another key area of the Hyundai-Baidu cooperation will be voice recognition services based on Baidu's natural language processing technology. Baidu's leading voice recognition technology will be coupled with Hyundai's proprietary noise cancellation technology, which filters out ambient background noises to enhance precision, enabling versatility for in-vehicle voice commands.

With a shared understanding that internet of things (IoT) is a centerpiece of connected mobility, Hyundai and Baidu have also agreed to continue efforts in speeding up the launch of intelligent vehicle-to-home services. The partnership's ultimate goal is to secure an upper hand in the competitive IoT market.

"The convergence of the ICT and automotive industry is happening at an unprecedented rate, motivating us to develop and provide new possibilities for our customers," said Kyowoong Choo, Director and Head of Infotainment Development Group at Hyundai Motor. "Through our partnership with Baidu, we will develop industry-leading connected-vehicles that exceed customer expectations."

Hyundai's partnership with Baidu dates back to 2015, when the two companies jointly developed and launched "˜CarLife', an in-vehicle infotainment platform. Hyundai further strengthened its ties with Baidu in 2017, when the automaker became the first to equip its Chinese market vehicles with Baidu's connected navigation system and voice recognition technologies. Last month, Hyundai officially announced that it will take part in Apollo, Baidu's open autonomous driving program.
