Hyundai Motors also introduced strategic initiatives for building up to advanced mobility knowledge with an unlimited Mobility of Things (MoT) ecosystem. The firm also displayed out a range of robots and robotic concepts.

As per the Hyundai Motor announcement, the global PnD modular platform is an all-in-one mobility solution that integrates out intelligent steering, braking, in-wheel electric drive, and suspension hardware.

The firm also highlighted that the single wheel unit utilizes a steering actuator for infinite wheel rotation, meaning it can turn 360 degrees, which empowers out a holonomic movement, like a figure skater. LiDAR and camera sensors empower a PnD-enabled object to move autonomously.

Dong Jin Hyun, Vice President and Head of Robotics Lab of Hyundai Motor Group stated: “We are directing all our robotics engineering and creative efforts toward building the unlimited Mobility of Things ecosystem. The goal is for robotics to enable all kinds of personal mobility, connected to communicate, move and perform tasks autonomously.” Hyundai also displayed out the MobED (Mobile Eccentric Droid) small mobility platform with the Drive & Lift (DnL) module at CES 2022 which offers out an all-in-one robotics solution based on an eccentric wheel mechanism that combines the drive, steering, and braking systems into one structure.
