Hyundai has combined its cruise control system with machine learning technology to make the driving experience more personal.
Called Smart Cruise Control, the Union enables cruise control to simulate the driving style of the human owner.
The technology is able to learn the desired distance between cars, takes acceleration into account, knows how you react to traffic changes and more.

Hyundai has considered what the machine learning-based Smart Cruise Control (SCC-ML) has called & # 39; a first in the industry & # 39; and will be implemented in future vehicles.
& # 39; The new SCC-ML improves the intelligence of the previous ADAS technology to dramatically improve the usability of semi-autonomous functions & # 39 ;, says Woongjun Jang, VP at Hyundai Motor Group.
& # 39; Hyundai Motor Group will continue the development efforts on innovative AI technologies to lead the autonomous driving industry. & # 39;
The driving pattern can be subdivided into three parts: distance from previous vehicles, acceleration (how fast it accelerates) and responsiveness (how quickly it responds to driving conditions).
The system uses a series of sensors to collect driving information and then transmits it to the centralized computer. The computer then retrieves the personal driving data and then the AI applies what it has learned
In addition to driving conditions and speeds are also taken into account.
The system uses a series of sensors to collect driving information and then transmits it to the centralized computer.
The computer then retrieves the personal driving data and then the AI applies what it has learned.
And the driving information is constantly updated to ensure that it matches the style and preferences of the driver.
In addition, SCC-ML is specifically programmed to prevent unsafe driving patterns from being learned, thereby increasing reliability and safety.
Hyundai has also announced that it is interested to join the self-driving taxi industry. The South Korean automarker announced last month a $ 4 billion partnership with Aptiv, which designs level 4 and level 5 production-ready self-propelled systems
Hyundai has also announced that it is interested to join the self-driving taxi industry.
The South Korean automarker announced last month a $ 4 billion partnership with Aptiv, which will design level 4 and level 5 production-ready self-propelled systems intended for commercialization by 2022.
The company aims to strengthen Hyundai's leading position in the global autonomous ecosystem.
The goal is to develop ready-to-drive level 4 and level 5 self-propelled propulsion systems, which, according to the duo, will be available by 2022 for robotaxi and fleet managers and other car manufacturers.
Both companies will own 50 percent of the joint venture, which has a total value of $ 4 billion.
Hyundai, which appears to be the most involved in the collaboration, has contributed $ 1.6 billion in cash and another $ 4 billion in vehicle technology, R&D resources and access to intellectual property.
The head office in Dublin, Aptiv, will, however, provide its own autonomous driving technology, intellectual property and around 700 employees who focus on developing scalable autonomous driving solutions.
The new partnership reflects the shared vision of the company to make mobility safer, greener and more accessible through the development of autonomous technology.
"This collaboration reinforces Aptiv's leading capabilities in the development of advanced driver assistance systems, vehicle connectivity solutions and Smart Vehicle Architecture," said Kevin Clark, President and Chief Executive Officer, Aptiv.
& # 39; Hyundai Motor Group & # 39; s advanced engineering and R&D capabilities make them our partner of choice to promote the development of a production-ready autonomous platform. & # 39;
WHAT ARE THE SIX LEVELS OF SELF-DRIVEN AUTOMATION?
Level zero – The full-time performance by the human driver of all aspects of the dynamic driving task, even when improved by warning or intervention systems.
Level one – A small amount of control is achieved by the system, such as adaptive braking when a car gets too close.
Level two – The system can control the speed and direction of the car so that the driver can temporarily take his hands off, but he must keep an eye on the road at all times and be ready to take it over.
Level three – The driver does not always have to monitor the system in certain cases, for example in high manners, but must be ready to resume control if the system requests it.
Level four – The system can handle all situations automatically within certain uses, but it may not be able to handle all weather or road conditions. System will rely on high definition mapping.
Level five – Full automation. The system can handle all weather, traffic and light conditions. It can be used anywhere, anytime and under any circumstances.
The activities of the joint venture in Korea will serve as an important technology center, as well as a vehicle adjustment base and a test bed for autonomous platforms for operating mobility services.
Hyundai Motor Group's strong presence on the local automotive market and world-class 5G infrastructure are expected to boost the partnership's development efforts.
& # 39; The new joint venture marks the start of a trip with Aptiv to our common goal of commercializing autonomous driving & quot ;, said Euisun Chung, Executive Vice Chairman of Hyundai Motor Group.
& # 39; The combined capabilities of Aptiv, a leading global technology company, and our group, a global OEM, will be invaluable to lead the autonomous driving landscape. & # 39;
Since the DARPA Challenge 2007, Aptiv has been leading the race of self-driving car software and is known to run the first coast-to-coast automated drive in the United States in 2015 and is the first commercially usable autonomous vehicle worldwide.
More than 100 autonomous vehicles around the world have Aptiv technology and to date, the company has provided more than 70,000 paid autonomous journeys, with more than 2,700 destinations, while providing an almost perfect average passenger rating of 4.95 – has retained five stars.
The latest investment from Hyundai Motor Group embodies the continuous efforts of the Korean automotive leader to achieve fully autonomous driving with the highest level of safety. Hyundai began testing autonomous vehicles on public roads in the US in 2015 with a permit from the state of Nevada.
During CES in 2017, Hyundai expanded its trials in urban environments with self-driving technologies to the public with its autonomous IONIQ model.
And in 2018, the South Korean car manufacturer successfully demonstrated level 4 autonomous driving technology on a highway, while five NEXO fuel cell electric vehicles traveled 190 kilometers from Seoul to Pyeonchang without the help of a human driver.
