Sonatus, a automotive software company that is unlocking the full potential of the software-defined vehicle announced a partnership with Hyundai Motor Group focused on innovations within the E/E architecture across Hyundai’s vehicle lineup, including Genesis, Hyundai, and Kia. As a first and foundational step, the two companies collaborated on the recently launched Genesis GV70 SUV, with Sonatus software solutions supporting next-generation digital technologies in the vehicle.

Sonatus’ Digital Dynamics software solutions will be used by Hyundai to build out their existing capabilities with flexible vehicle data collection and monitoring, as well as with cloud-managed in-vehicle network management and optimization in next-generation Genesis, Hyundai, and Kia vehicles. The reality is that rapidly escalating digital demands of mobility will require all automobiles to quickly become veritable datacenters on wheels. Hyundai expects to enable the most demanding use cases of tomorrow with the Sonatus software suite. 

Going forward, all OEMs will have to evolve their vehicle infrastructure with technologies like Ethernet, IP and universal cloud connectivity. However, the management of these technologies introduces significant new challenges. With this partnership, Sonatus is bringing critical experience and visibility that is enabling Hyundai to transition away from legacy architectures and transform its vehicle development, E/E architecture capabilities, and ownership experience—and ultimately build the digitally dynamic vehicles of the future. 

Software-defined vehicles are the future of automotive, and Sonatus is at the forefront of this revolution by enabling automakers to digitally transform their lineups. The company’s flexible and easily scalable solutions make it easy for OEM customers to accelerate the digitization of their vehicles, embrace continuous innovation, and gain sustainable advantage in the digital era.
