Hyundai went on to lift the curtain on a new generation of telematics that is being developed in collaboration with computer giant IBM. Voice-operated and totally secure, the telematics portal opens up a whole new era of on-demand car computing that will provide services to make driving safer and more convenient.
Following the widespread public interest in the new cars and technology on the Hyundai stand in Seoul, Hyundai Chief Executive Officer Dong-Jin Kim said: "We have put a lot of work into our research and development efforts over the past few years and we are seeing the results of this."
He added: "Many of the things you see on these cars are now close to production and we will start seeing them on our cars very soon."Published 28 November 2002
