CES 2024 Live Blog: More News, Gadgets, and Photos From Tech’s Big Show

Very like Bosch, which is engaged on a hydrogen car engine, Hyundai has introduced that it too is doubling down on hydrogen, presenting what it calls a blueprint for a hydrogen vitality ecosystem. Hyundai has the world’s highest market share in hydrogen-powered automobile gross sales, although that isn’t almost as spectacular because it sounds, in fact. Hyundai’s future hydrogen options will supposedly transcend passenger vehicles, vehicles, and buses to incorporate issues resembling trams, ships, energy turbines, and planes.

At its press convention as we speak, the group introduced it’s engaged on tech that goals to remodel pollution into clear hydrogen. Hyundai has two approaches for this: Waste-to-Hydrogen (W2H) and Plastic-to-Hydrogen (P2H). W2H includes the fermentation of natural waste (meals waste, livestock manure, and many others) to generate biogas. This biogas is then handled to seize carbon dioxide and produce hydrogen. P2H includes melting waste plastics that can’t be recycled, gasifying the molten plastics, after which producing hydrogen from this by eradicating “pointless parts”.

The opposite most important focus of Hyundai’s CES bulletins was on software program, persevering with the auto development we’re seeing this yr the place new {hardware} is taking one thing of a again seat. A brand new Software program-Outlined Every thing’ (SDX) technique will deal with, in fact, AI.

The SDX technique inevitably consists of software-defined automobiles (SDVs). Apparently, the thought is to “decouple {hardware} and software program” in its vehicles, main to raised, quicker, and wider updates. Such a scheme leaves you questioning if this wasn’t completed already, then why wasn’t it? Certainly, the sharing of tech between Hyundai and sister-brand Kia is already in depth, so it’s unclear how this new initiative strikes issues additional, although “software-defined fleets for companies” had been talked about.

Hyundai additionally stated it intends to remodel its automobiles into “AI machines” so it could personalize consumer experiences and ship “added-value”. However we’ve heard this earlier than many occasions from different producers. All of them wish to do that, however few appear clear on precisely learn how to do it efficiently. A part of the group’s efforts to realize this includes writing its personal software program for its consumer interface and creating a brand new infotainment system full with the compulsory app market. And, not like Volkswagen, which has opted to integrate ChatGPT into its coming vehicles, Hyundai group is now creating its personal LLM to place in its automobiles. All that is going to take time, although, so don’t anticipate the primary software program from this initiative to drop till 2026.
