At the recent CES event, Covisint has described its projects together with Hyundai to extend the features afforded by the connected car. According to them, the integration of Google' s smart display known as Google Glass into a vehicle's human-machine interface will improve the driver's ability to view automotive, navigation and infotainment functions.

Google Glass will make some enhanced reality functions developed for the mobile devices world available to Hyundai uses. The display will show information relevant to the driver along with safety and service information. In addition, the glass functions as display for in-vehicle infotainment functions. Scheduled for availability later this year in Hyundai's next-generation vehicles generation, these functions will be available initially for a limited number of Google Glass users.

Most of these functions however will also be available to drivers of Hyundai's upcoming Genesis vehicle generation without Google Glass. The integration of these functions with the Google Glass device technology and Hyundai's Blue Link telematics system is based on Covisint's cloud-based application platform.

The functions available on these platforms include remote engine start, remote door open and close, searching for Points of Interests through the GPS system, vehicle status data including diagnosis and service information, expanded breakdown assistance and setting up garage appointments.

In addition to these personalized functions, the Covisint platform enables customers to add future services. Automotive OEMs thus can improve their user experience.
