Hyundai and Nvidia have announced that Nvidia's drive platform which is a software-defined A1 powered infotainment system will be ubiquitously integrated into all of Hyundai's vehicles. This will work across Hyundai group brands which include the parent Hyundai brand, Kia and Genesis. Cars with Nvidia Drive will go into production by 2022. 

"By making high-performance, energy-efficient compute a standard feature, every vehicle will include a rich, software-defined AI user experience that's always at the cutting edge," the both reveal in a blog post. 

Hyundai's partnership with Nvidia is not new. It has been working with Nvidia since 2015 developing the Drive system which was originally deployed on the Genesis GV80 and G80 models last year. They have also been working on an advanced digital cockpit for 2021.

Drive is a suite of features which includes underlying firmware operating system integrating AI leveraging higher performance compute that is delivered by Nvidia's chipsets. Usually, the features of a car are compartmentalised - the infotainment system is powered by something else and the main autonomous capabilities are powered by a chip like Nvidia's Xavier. In fact, even an infotainment system can need multiple components which include switches for the radio etc - all of this is now coupled together on a smart platform. This will also include driver monitoring capabilities which are going to be important for ADAS or fully autonomous vehicles.
