Hyundai’s bluelink technology at CES on Driving the Nation

Mitchell Zarders, Senior Engineer, Hyundai Technical Center, talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO,, about Hyundai’s future infotainment systems at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Zarders goes through what is available now, next-generation concepts and what will be available in the future.

Imagine having a car tell you you’re too tired to drive, or being able to gesture your hand to command your infotainment system. Most people know SIRI and voice activation, but now we get to know about car configuration through your smart phone, eyes free mode, dragon drive, Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) and Wi-Fi/3G connectivity options with user-centric interface design.

When will these systems come out and which car will they come out on first?
