Hyundai Motor said it is teaming up with Cisco to develop new connected-vehicle technologies.

The Korean car company said it will work with Cisco, a US-based IT and networking group, on building the next generation of in-vehicle networks to better connect cars to each other and to the infrastructure around them.

The two companies plan to create a testing environment for vehicle simulation while Hyundai will also invest in cloud, big data analytics and security technologies for connected vehicles.

Hyundai Motor recently outlined its vision of "hyper-connected intelligent cars." In the medium term, it will focus on smart remote maintenance, autonomous driving, smart traffic, and the development of a "connectivity mobility hub."
