Of those, LAPTOP has selected 12 winners for its Best of CES 2014 Awards. The winners include groundbreaking devices that redefine their categories and enhance the lives of users.

"The Genesis Intelligent Assistant combines our next-generation Blue Link cloud platform with a proactive assistant that will help Genesis owners save time and reduce stress," said Michael Deitz, senior group manager of Connected Care, Hyundai Motor America. "This is a great way to show how Hyundai is using technology to enhance the ownership experience and we're honored that the editors of LAPTOP Magazine have recognized Blue Link by naming it a winner at CES this year."

GENESIS INTELLIGENT ASSISTANT APP
The Genesis Intelligent Assistant is a proactive app for automobiles intended to save the driver time and provide an even higher level of convenience. The app combines Blue Link features, data from the vehicle, the owner's smartphone and the internet with multiple layers of intelligence. This allows the Genesis Intelligent Assistant app to send proactive notifications and recommendations to the Genesis owner in preparation for their drive.

Genesis owners will no longer need to remember to remote start their car on a hot or cold day. The Genesis Intelligent Assistant app will remind them to do it through their smartphone.

Genesis Intelligent Assistant Functionality:

  • By providing commute information and access to their smartphone's calendar, owners can have the app automatically estimate appropriate departure times and send reminders for any upcoming appointments that require a drive.
    • Departure reminder messages are determined by up-to-the-minute commute times from the user's current location to the destination, accounting for traffic.
    • Temperature outside the vehicle is determined via zip code prior to the estimated departure time. If the temperature is above or below the default level, the user will receive a notification, asking if they would like to remote start their vehicle to heat it up or cool it down.
    • Recommendations for gas stations are provided, allowing the user to select a station and send the location to the vehicle's navigation system.
  • Vehicle health status will also be communicated through the user's smartphone when an action is required. This will allow the customer to schedule car care for their Genesis directly from the app.
  • Many additional Blue Link features are included within the app, making it a single, integrated solution for all drivers' vehicle needs.
  • The Genesis Intelligent Assistant app is a framework for the future with additional proactive functionality becoming available over time to provide the customer with the ultimate luxuries of time and convenience.

BLUE LINK ENHANCEMENTS

  • Destination Search powered by Google – users will be able to take advantage of Google's powerful destination search via the Blue Link button (voice recognition) and navigation display, or through myhyundai.com and the Blue Link mobile app to send a destination to their car
  • Remote Start – now includes an engine timer (1-10 min.), remote stop, remote climate control and remote defroster
  • Automatic Collision Notification (ACN) and SOS Emergency Assistance –includes user-selected emergency contacts notification via SMS and e-mail
