Hyundai seeks Israeli tech for its ‘connected cars’

New apps developed in Israel could show up in the company’s new Internet-linked vehicles as soon as next year

Korean car company Hyundai aims to become a leader in connected car technology – and it wants to use Israeli tech talent to accomplish that goal.

The company is sponsoring its first app hackathon contest (Hebrew), with developers of the best apps getting a NIS 100,000 prize and a contract with Hyundai Israel, and possibly, Hyundai agencies in other parts of the world.

The car of tomorrow may not be ready to fly, but it is ready to be tricked out with all sorts of communication technology that will help drivers get where they need to go more safely, possibly more quickly – and definitely more enjoyably. Already standard on some higher-end 2015 models are entertainment systems that integrate Internet radio apps (TuneIn, IheartRadio, Stitcher), direction apps (Waze, Google Maps), and communication apps (connections to smartphones, messaging systems).
