From the outside, the self-driving driver sees H yundai Ioniq like any other Ioniq, the Koreans have succeeded in installing all technical components in the prototype almost invisibly. This makes the self-driving Hyundai stand out from other research vehicles that use a lot of technology on the outside and on the body for a walk.
The 3-component lidar laser system is hidden behind the front bumper and monitors the area in front of and to the side of the vehicle. A radar system behind the brand logo in the front scans the near and far range in front of the vehicle. Three front cameras up behind the windshield see approaching pedestrians, read traffic signs and perceive lane markings. Further radar sensors monitor the blind spot and the area behind the Ioniq.
All monitoring systems were networked with the assistance systems already on board. The Hyundai prototype will then demonstrate its capabilities at CES 2017 in Las Vegas in January.
