Hyundai is showing off a standalone version of the Ioniq 5 with Motional, and this robotic simulator will have cameras, radars, and LiDAR to create a 360-degree image around the vehicle. This allows the car to drive itself at level 4. The hub of the robot still has a steering wheel and pedals.
from Ioniq 5 gets robotic Axis More than thirty sensors, comprising a mixture of radars, cameras, and lidars. Judging from the photos, the car appears to have lidar systems on the roof and two front side shields, with radar systems on the front, sides, rear and roof. Cameras are everywhere. Using these sensors and Motional software, the car can navigate autonomously through “difficult and complex traffic situations”. Motional is a partnership between Hyundai and automotive technology supplier Aptiv.
With software and sensors, a car at level 4 should be able to drive autonomously. This means that under certain conditions the car can drive independently without interference from the driver. This may mean, for example, that a car can drive autonomously only in certain cities. Hyundai does not indicate in the message what the limits of the system are. The pictures show that the car will have a driver’s seat with pedals and a steering wheel.
Motional and Hyundai also say they have “mastered certain functions in the Ioniq 5,” such as navigation, steering, braking and power. The companies do not provide any details about this, other than their desire to improve passenger safety and comfort. In addition, there is another interface, so that passengers can communicate with the hub of the robot to stop it somewhere along the way, for example. The two companies also indicate remote car assistance To be able to display in robot axi; This allows a Motional employee to remotely intervene and give the taxi a new route, for example, if there are roadworks or a flood.
The robotic vehicle is Motion’s first commercial vehicle and should start carrying passengers in 2023. For this, Motional will cooperate with Lyft. earlier The two companies indicated To deliver a self-driving robot hub in “multiple US cities” by 2023.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 was introduced earlier this year. The car comes with a 58 kWh or 73 kWh battery and has a range of 480 km. It is not clear what specifications the pivot robot has.
