Hyundai looks to automated personal transport

Hyundai Motor expects to leverage its expertise in robotics and artificial intelligence to build a future mobility network that links human beings in the real world with objects and tasks in the virtual world.

The vision was spelled out by executives, led by CEO Euisun Chung, as part of a briefing at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Hyundai Motor envisions an interactive and partly virtual future it calls ‘metamobility,’ where a variety of robotic devices interact with humans to provide a broad range of mobility services, from automated individual transportation to remote control of robots in smart factories.

The concept refers to shared virtual world environments which people can access via the internet, and which can make use of virtual reality or augmented reality.

The company offered several examples of how it might link the metaverse and the real world:

  • A vehicle that can be transformed into a work space or an entertainment room that includes a 3D video game platform.
  • A smart factory where humans outside the plant remotely control robots that interact with machines and products inside the plant.
  • Automated personal transportation devices for people with disabilities or individuals who want to maintain social distances while traveling.

To make all this work, the automotive manufacturer said it was building a ‘Mobility of Things’ ecosystem that will link modular robotic platforms to perform different mobility services.

One module, called Plug & Drive, is a single-wheel robotics platform that combines intelligent steering, braking and suspension with in-wheel electric drive, cameras and lidar sensors for automated operation.

For larger logistics tasks and other mobility services, Hyundai can bundle four such modules, including one application that pairs with a robot dog called Spot.

Rory Stewart - #PartyGate should be the last nail in Boris Johnson's coffin... Johnson was manifestly unsuited to be Prime Minister from the beginning, & it's very, very disturbing that a great country, like Britain, should have chosen somebody so unsuitable for the role.
