Right now if you are looking to hire a helicopter to get from one place to another, it isn’t necessarily the cheapest option. However, perhaps in the future, flying personal modes of transportation could become cheaper and more accessible, and that’s a future that both Hyundai and Uber are working towards.
Many are wondering what the future looks like in terms of transportation. Will we still be driving cars on the roads 20 years from now? Will we be flying around on personal jetpacks? That remains to be seen, but it seems that Hyundai is interested in flying cars and they are looking to bolster their division with their most recent hire.
You’ve heard all about the different flying car concepts but what about a car that can bust out four legs when you’re just not feeling the traffic? Hyundai Elevate is the company’s “walking car” concept that’s not actually meant to take you over a traffic jam. It would deploy robotic legs to basically walk over rough terrain. The company says that this concept has been designed with first responders in […]
If you have a habit of forgetting your car keys then you would like the new system that Hyundai has just revealed. The new car system will enable drivers to not only unlock their vehicles but also start them with nothing more than their fingerprint. It would essentially be just as easy as picking up your smartphone and unlocking it with your fingerprint. The system will be built into the […]
Hyundai and Kia have announced that they’re adopting solar panels for cars in a pretty big way. They plan to introduce solar panels on select vehicles. These panels will be able to generate electricity and will be placed into the roof or hood of the vehicles. They will support the internal combustion, hybrid, and battery electric vehicles by providing additional power to increase fuel efficiency and range.
Last month we reported that the FTC had announced that those “warranty if removed” stickers you sometimes find on gadgets are actually illegal. This isn’t based on a new ruling or recently passed law, but rather it is based on the 1975 Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act that the FTC is just reminding companies about.
Car manufacturers are increasingly adopting artificial intelligence-powered virtual assistants for future models so it’s not surprising to see two firms with a history of adopting new in-car technology ahead of their rivals throw their hats in the ring as well. Kia and Hyundai have both revealed that their 2019 cars will include artificial intelligence-backed virtual assistants.
Hyundai’s Blue Link is a feature of its cars that has been around for a while now. The app can do a variety of things, such as remotely unlocking the car, and recently with Alexa integration, it can perform actions using just your voice. Now it seems that the app has been updated with new services, such as on-demand car washing.
More and more legacy car manufacturers are jumping on the electric car bandwagon. Seeing the success that has come Tesla’s way, many manufacturers have now decided that they want a piece of the electric car pie as well. South Korea-based Hyundai has now confirmed that it’s placing electric cars at the center of its future product strategy.
In futuristic movies, everything seems to be voice controlled, where you can wake up, tell your home AI to read you the news, make a pot of coffee, check the traffic, and so on. That future is almost here as more companies are starting to make their devices smarter than ever. For Hyundai owners, it seems that the company’s Blue Link app just got more functional.
Hyundai’s Blue Link service is an interesting one as basically what it does is that it allows car owners to control their Hyundai vehicle remotely. Obviously smartphone integration is one avenue, but in the past couple of years, we’ve seen it integrated with Android Wear, the Apple Watch, and Alexa-powered speakers.
While companies like Tesla are pushing forwards with electric cars, companies like Hyundai are exploring alternatives in the form of hydrogen-powered fuel cells. The company has been working on the technology for a while and back in 2014, they introduced the Hyundai Tuscon Fuel Cell.
One of the upsides of Amazon making Alexa open to third-party developers is that it is easier for developers to adopt the technology and bake it into their products. It was only recently that Apple decided to do that with Siri, and Google is also expected to follow suit with Google Assistant in December.
Hyundai was one of the first car manufacturers to support in-car infotainment platforms from Google and Apple. It’s demonstrating that it’s going to lead the way in adopting forward-thinking technologies to improve connectivity in the car, which is why the company is rolling out updates which will enable owners of select models to add Android Auto and CarPlay support to their car themselves.
