LAS VEGAS — Saying it wants to show the world "a little-known side of ourselves," Hyundai made its inaugural appearance at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show here with an eye-popping slate of in-vehicle electronics.

"We're here to gauge American public interest," said Yang Woong-Chul, president of Hyundai's Electronic and Eco-Technology Center.

While remaining vague about which technologies are bound for the real world, the Korean automaker said some of the goodies are "scheduled for gradual application in Hyundai and Kia vehicles beginning in the second half of 2010." No word yet on pricing for any of the automaker's state-of-the-art tech gadgets.

Hyundai's Car-Home Network uses a cell phone network and wireless network to connect the vehicle with your home. It said this system can open and close the curtains, set the thermostat in the house and send emergency alerts and live surveillance video to the car "in the event of a home intrusion." It can also remotely start a vehicle.

The Car Ubiquitous System can carry out such services as guiding the driver to an open parking space in a crowded mall parking lot and performing vehicle diagnostic checks.

Hyundai's Digital Mobile TV is described as the "world's first mobile TV system capable of receiving high-definition video and audio at vehicle speeds of up to 180 mph." Its EX-Traffic system automatically brakes the vehicle to prevent a crash.

Inside Line says: Undoubtedly, tech-hungry Americans will be interested in a lot of Hyundai's gadgets. But the real question is: How soon will they become available in the Genesis and other vehicles? — Anita Lienert, Correspondent
