Hyundai reveals its Connectivity Concept

Article by Christian A., on December 26, 2012

Hyundai has developed the first prototype of its own Connectivity Concept, inspired by how versatile the current smartphones are. Hyundai gave a preview of this technology near its European base in Frankfurt, Germany. Hyundai displays its prowess in making use of new technology for its car lineup. We expect to see this as early as 2015.

The Connectivity Concept, which was fitted on Hyundai’s highly acclaimed New Generation i30, cancels out the need for a traditional key fob since it enables the user to lock and unlock the car by simply holding their smartphone over an NFC-tag (Near Field Communication). The user’s profile is activated as soon as this device is put in the centre console. This is done by streaming content to the i30’s seven-inch touchscreen.

All the user content like music, phone contacts, radio station preferences and individual profile settings are shown. Furthermore, the battery is being wirelessly recharged at the same time. According to Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Hyundai Motor Europe, Hyundai’s Connectivity Concept presents the brand’s philosophy of giving a broad array of consumers the access to future technology.

Hyundai aims to exploit the all-in-one functionality of current smartphone technology and smoothly integrate it into daily driving. Since technology continuously evolves, Hyundai will soon offer capabilities like storing the driver’s seating positions and exterior mirror settings, and offering customers a comfortable and individual driving environment.

Since numerous users can be synced with the car, the set-up can be as fast and easy as using the Connectivity Concept in the i30 tailors in-car settings on the driver’s smartphone. In addition, the Connectivity Concept is equipped with MirrorLink to wirelessly access and control personal content via the touchscreen through navigation, internet-based applications and multimedia.
