Hyundai Motor announced its strategic partnership with Autotalks, a leading technology company specializing in the manufacture of communication chip sets Vehicle to Everything (V2X). The goal of this alliance is to accelerate the development and implementation of the next-generation chipset for connected cars.

While Hagai Zyss, CEO of Autotalks, commented: “Having a major global automaker like Hyundai is a vote of confidence in the company and a testament to the growth of the market. State-of-the-art communication and security technologies are the perfect combination with Autotalks' core V2X capabilities. ”
