Hyundai will present at the consumer electronics show CES, which will open in early 2017 in Las Vegas, a prototype hybrid Ioniq with Autonomous control. During the exhibition, two drones will operate in automatic mode according to the Las Vegas Strip.
The car is equipped with an optical range finder LiDAR to determine the exact distance to other cars and obstacles, as well as a system of three cameras watching pedestrians, road markings, signs and traffic signals.
In addition, the drones are guided in space by means of the GPS receiver, the data which is verified with the highly detailed maps of the surrounding area.
Hyundai noted that the Autonomous Ioniq when the movement is able to take into consideration the information about "speed bumps, road repairs, and the areas with the nearby children's schools, pedestrians and dogs without a leash".
The South Korean company is also developing its own operating system for unmanned vehicles, which "can significantly reduce the level of energy consumed by artificial intelligence." This should significantly reduce the cost of equipment that will allow in the future to establish a system of Autonomous control in the medium-price segment.
Hyundai Ioniq debuted in early 2016. The composition of the hybrid power plant model includes the 105-strong petrol engine volume of 1.6 liters, a 43.5-horsepower electric motor, a set of lithium-polymer batteries and a six-speed "robot" with two clutches. published
