Hyundai preparing to integrate Siri and high-definition video in its future vehicles

Article by Christian A., on January 9, 2013

Future Hyundai and Kia vehicles will make use of Google Maps. The first model to get this technology is the 2014 Kia Sorento SUV. Hyundai revealed more information about its future in-car technology at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Hyundai declined to indicate what specific models will be available with this technology.

It can be assumed though that its most popular models such as the Sonata and Santa Fe SUV, as well as the next-generation Genesis premium sedan, would be included. Future Hyundai models will also feature Siri integration with “Eyes Free” mode, which blacks out the mobile device’s screen while the car is being driven, and Dragon Drive, a sophisticated voice-recognition system built together with Nuance software, which makes the famous Dragon Naturally Speaking voice transcription software.

The Dragon Drive is different from numerous existing systems that ask drivers to input commands in line with a stringent keyword protocol with a more superior recognition of conversational commands. In addition, future Hyundai models will support mobile high-definition uncompressed video with as many as eight audio channels to a dashboard display, while the mobile device is being charged at the same time.

It’s assumed that the dashboard video display would be disabled while the vehicle is moving, unless technology comparable to that of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is used, making content visible to passengers, but not to the driver. Hyundai also announced that next-generation hardware will support Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity and media streaming via -Pandora and Aha, as well as the presently supported HD Radio and SiriusXM satellite radio.
