The Hyundai Motor Group recently developed Machine Learning based Smart Cruise Control, which is the first technology of its kind in the world. The Hyundai SCC-ML can learn your driving habits and then utilize that information to create a self-driving experience that is unique to you.
The industry-first technology integrates artificial intelligence in its Advanced Driver Assistance System and is set to be available in future Hyundai models. SCC-ML incorporates the Smart Cruise Control technology with AI. SCC allows you to stay at a preselected distance from the vehicle in front of you.
With the past SCC, you had to manually adjust the acceleration and distance from the vehicle ahead, which could make it difficult to match your exact driving habits. Now, the SCC-ML can follow the same driving pattern as your own and provide a comfortable and smooth driving experience.
SCC-ML works by using radars and a front camera to gain information about your driving behavior. The sensors then send the information to a computer, which can discern your patterns on the road. The machine learning algorithm, an AI technology, works to identify the patterns.
We at Linwood Hyundai are excited about the future implementation of this new technology. Stop by our dealership to check out the technologies in the available vehicles on our lot.

Hyundai is once again proving its penchant for game-changing innovation, this time by partnering with the Israeli medical technology company, MDGo. Initially, it may seem odd that an automaker and a med-tech company are partnering up. However, Hyundai and MDGo are collaborating to make artificial-intelligence technology that could save the lives of passengers and drivers.
Their mutual technology aims to detect and assess injuries from vehicle crashes. The AI algorithm could then send this data to emergency first responders for quicker and potentially lifesaving care. How this all works is that the technology would utilize a system of sensors situated throughout the vehicle and observe the vehicle occupants’ medical conditions to create an immediate health status report, in the event of a crash. Within seconds, the system would then deliver this report to medical responders, who could arrive at the scene already armed with the knowledge of injury severity, allowing for more effective assistance.
The AI would continuously become more knowledgeable about crashes and injuries so it could more effectively transmit information to hospitals over time. Hyundai could also make their vehicles safer, thanks to the AI system’s data.
We at Linwood Hyundai believe vehicle safety is very important, which is why we’re excited for this new AI technology. Schedule an appointment with our service department for any necessary maintenance to help protect you on the road.
At the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show held this past November, Hyundai showed off its new flagship SUV, called the Hyundai Palisade. The debut of the Hyundai Palisade shows that Hyundai is moving into new territory with its biggest and most impressive SUV yet.
The Palisade will come standard with three rows of spacious seating and will offer a variety of family-friendly technology like a 10-inch navigation display, seven USB outlets, wireless charging, roof-based diffuser vents, and power third-row seats.
Along with the spacious seating, the Palisade can be equipped to feel like a premium retreat away from home. Available materials like Nappa leather and woodgrain trim create a calm, comfortable ambience. The One-Touch second row seats will slide forward for easy access to the third row with just the press of a button.
To give families extra security, the Palisade will come standard with a variety of advanced safety features including Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, and Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go.
Mike O’Brien, vice president of Product, Corporate, and Digital Planning for Hyundai Motor America, said, “This new Hyundai SUV is the ultimate family vehicle for practical, comfortable daily use and memory-making road trips whenever the appeal of the open road should beckon.”
We can’t wait for the Palisade to arrive at Linwood Hyundai. If you want a big, capable family SUV from Hyundai, keep an eye out it later this year.
Reliable, efficient, comfortable and full of useful features — these are descriptors that might get used when discussing the Hyundai lineup. According to SangYup Lee, Hyundai’s vice president of design, the brand wants to add some new types of expectations to its future lineup. The goal? To make vehicles that are “sexier than Alfa Romeo.”
The company first hinted at its plans to launch a new brand of styling when it debuted the Le Fil Rouge concept car at the Geneva Motor Show last March. It’s a sleek, four-door coupe with sweeping lines as smooth as water. After seeing it, we at Linwood Hyundai definitely wanted more like it from Hyundai.
In his interview with Automotive News, Lee discussed Hyundai’s goal for bringing this type of sexy, sleek styling to the upcoming lineup, and how part of this mission is to bring that type of attractive, breathtaking styling to a volume brand.
Lee also mentioned that this new styling will contribute to the updates required to keep the sedan segment relevant and exciting in a market where crossovers and SUVs are becoming the more popular choice. As the company prepares to add a Le Fil Rouge-inspired car to the lineup sometime in the next year, the long-term goal is to make futuristic, beautiful styling an addition to the Hyundai standards of good value and long-lasting, efficient engineering.
Hyundai recently made news by partnering with WaiveCar. In fact, WaiveCar made an appearance on the TV series “Shark Tank,” demonstrating the future of mobility. This eco-friendly technology caters to the everyday demands, offering drivers in Los Angeles a fleet of all-new Ioniq cars as part of a rental program.
According to Hyundai, the WaiveCar rental program lets drivers rent a car for up to two hours for free, with an additional $5.99 charge per hour of use. Basically, you can hop behind the wheel of an eco-friendly Hyundai Ioniq when you need a ride and return the car at your convenience. Not only does this system provide easy access to affordable driving options, but it may also reduce gridlock and harmful emissions.
As Hyundai’s press release articulates, “WaiveCar users […] have access to a fleet of all-new Ioniq electric and hybrid models. The Ioniq delivers an uncompromising design and driving experience coupled with the latest in safety and convenience technologies, as well as marking a major step in eco-focused driving.”
The “sharks” on “Shark Tank” were impressed with the concept in an episode that aired at the end of October. While WaiveCar is currently in its early stages, it may soon be an option available around the country. We at Linwood Hyundai Paducah can’t wait to see if the system comes to our area.
