Hyundai Debuts Next-Generation Automotive Technology at CES

COSTA MESA, Calif., Jan. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Hyundai returns to the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) January 8-11, 2013 (North Hall, booth #315) to debut and showcase a number of new vehicle technologies. Along with demonstrations of its Blue Link® telematics and infotainment platform, Hyundai will again preview its next-generation concepts and future infotainment systems for the tech-savvy CES crowd.

Through the vehicle's infotainment system, drivers with a compatible iPhone* running iOS 6 can direct Siri to perform a number of tasks while they safely keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. To further minimize distraction, Siri takes hands-free functionality even further with an Eyes Free mode which enables drivers to interact with their iPhone using nothing more than their voice while keeping the device's screen from lighting up.

-- Dragon Drive: Developed by Nuance, Dragon Drive is an automotive-grade voice services platform for the connected car that enables drivers to speak naturally and conversationally with in-car systems. Drivers can simply dictate messages, search for their favorite music, find real-time weather and even ask directions to their favorite restaurant - in the car or in the cloud. With its extensive experience in the automotive industry, Nuance is working with Hyundai to integrate Dragon Drive into its future vehicle infotainment systems.

-- Mobile High-Definition Link: MHL technology delivers 1080p60 uncompressed video with up to eight channels of digital audio from a mobile device to a dashboard display, all while charging the device. With MHL technology, Hyundai is able to integrate mobile devices into the car infotainment experience by enabling consumers to display apps and other content from the road. The MHL ecosystem is continuing to grow with an installed base of more than 220 million products and has fast become the de facto standard for smartphones.

-- Next-Generation Hardware: Hyundai will feature the latest hardware with high resolution, multi-touch displays, Bluetooth® 3.0 and Wi-Fi/3G connectivity options with user-centric interface design. Drivers will be able to access connectivity features such as web browsing, mobile hot-spot, and media streaming through the support of DLNA and Mirror Link and Aha by HARMAN. These next-generation systems will also showcase popular entertainment features like Pandora®, HD Radio® and SIRIUSXM®.

* Siri is available in Beta only on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad (3rd and 4th generations), iPad mini and iPod touch (5th generation), and requires Internet access. Siri may not be available in all languages or in all areas, and features may vary by area. Cellular data charges may apply.

Hyundai Reception at CES Last week, Hyundai announced plans to integrate Google Maps APIs, including Send to Car, Point of Interest Search and Local Search by Voice, in to its Blue Link telematics platform. Representatives from both companies will be at the Hyundai Blue Link exhibit on January 10th at 11 A.M. PST for info and photo opportunities. Media and show goers are invited to stop by.

Blue Link Telematics Following its debut at CES in 2011, Blue Link continues to be the centerpiece of Hyundai's commitment to global leadership in vehicle infotainment and telematics. The upcoming CES show will provide show goers a preview of the next evolution of Blue Link. "We've made great progress on Blue Link since its launch two years ago thanks to valuable feedback from our owners and enthusiasts like the ones attending CES," said Michael Deitz, senior group manager of Connected Car at Hyundai Motor America. "We're excited to be back at CES to demonstrate where we're headed with the Blue Link platform." Future Automotive Technology Each year, CES serves as the home for the most innovative and ground-breaking technology demonstrations. Following the theme, Hyundai will feature concepts and live demonstrations of future automotive technologies shown throughout the display and in its HND-6 concept vehicle. Visitors will be able to explore the future of automotive technology and how it affects vehicle interior design and safety.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
