Hyundai denies tie-up with Tencent on driverless car software
Reuters | 2019/4/9

SEOUL -- South Korean automaker Hyundai Motor Co. on Sunday denied a report that it had signed a preliminary deal with Chinese technology company Tencent Holdings to develop software for driverless vehicles. 

Hyundai¡¯s comments came a day after South Korea¡¯s   Maeil Business Newspaper   cited unnamed industry sources on Saturday saying that the two companies planned to conduct joint r&d on safety and security systems for self-driving cars, which Hyundai seeks to roll out commercially by 2030. 

The companies had not offered any immediate comments on Saturday. 

Hyundai said in a statement on Sunday that its cooperation with the Chinese tech giant was focused on infotainment. Modern vehicles have so-called infotainment systems on a screen below the dashboard to provide services such as navigation and music.
