The development of in-car infotainment has rapidly increased during the past few years. Over the last four or five years, we’ve progressed from an icon-based graphic UI with a 90s aesthetic to a fully-fledged animation experience of the highest quality. While some manufacturers saw the promise of in-car entertainment systems early on, others lagged behind and are still catching up—we’re looking at you, Volkswagen.
The Hyundai Group was one of the companies that understood the value of superior in-car infotainment systems, as evidenced by the excellent user experiences offered by its most recent electric vehicles, the Ioniq 6, Kia EV9, and Genesis GV60. The graphics and speed are perfect, and the user interface is clear and simple. Yet, Hyundai isn’t sitting on its laurels since customers demand an even better experience, advancements are being made, and the competition is catching up.
Hyundai declared that its newest Exynos Auto V920 car processor would power its upcoming infotainment systems. The first products of this partnership, which marks the first time the different companies have collaborated in the automobile industry, will be available in 2025.
The third-generation Exynos V920 CPU from Samsung is intended for use in in-car entertainment systems. The processor is designed to give next-level performance because of its significantly enhanced CPU, graphics, and neural processing capabilities. In addition to multi-screen capabilities for presenting high-quality material, Samsung guarantees seamless delivery of driving information. The performance of the V920, which has 10 Arm cores, is 1.7 times higher than that of the previous generation.
It supports the LPDDR5 standard for greater memory speeds and is tailored for autonomous driving. Up to six high-definition screens and 12 cameras can be controlled by the processor alternately. Its AI performance has significantly increased, which has improved the visual display. The driver’s interaction will be enhanced, and the interface will provide a rich graphical experience thanks to integrated GPU cores that are twice as fast as processors from the previous generation.
It’s fully integrated NPU (neural processing unit) allows improved driver monitoring and has a performance increase of 2.7 times. It will greatly improve the accuracy, simplicity, and speed of identifying driver weariness or attention. The V920 also includes a fail-safe, an incorporated safety island that manages malfunctions in real time and maintains the security of the in-vehicle infotainment system.
While the enhanced infotainment is a fantastic selling point and can make the difference between a vehicle that sells well and one that no one wants to buy, security is far more crucial. Any car owner would be kept up at night by the most recent hacking incidents and videos that have been widely circulated on social media showing people how to steal the newest cars without using many tools. But has access to the best technologies in the business, manufacturers frequently overlook security concerns in favour of eye-catching graphics. Hope Hyundai makes effective use of the Samsung V920..
