Hyundai Motor on Tuesday stated that it will unite with Cisco Systems to develop Internet-connected car technology, part of the automaker’s push to develop “high-performing computers on wheels”.

Auto and tech companies are gradually forming more alliances to enlarge services that hook cars up to Internet, chiefly as the race to develop self-driving cars heats up.

Vice Chairman Chung Eui-sun met Cisco Chief Executive Chuck Robbins in Seoul and agreed to co-develop in-vehicle network technology for high-speed transfer of large amounts of data, said Hyundai.

A statement released by Hyundai stated that “The cooperation is part of Hyundai Motor’s wider strategy to establish an industry-leading connected car platform through collaboration with leading technology partners.”
