VR Ioniq goes to Geneva Motor Show

Fri Mar 17, 2017 10:00 pm

I know this isn't really related to getting an IONIQ EV into your hands, but it is part of the whole autonomous driving that is suddenly at the top of every automaker's "todo" list.

Hyundai had this VR simulator to see what it would be like driving in a driverless car.

7 March 2017 – After its successful test drive participation in the streets of Las Vegas, Hyundai Motor brings its Autonomous IONIQ model as an exhibit to the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show.

The advanced autonomous IONIQ model two virtual reality cockpits will give visitors the chance to experience a drive in an autonomous car on the stand.

Moving forward with the use of LiDAR technology, Hyundai Motor has fitted the hardware behind the autonomous IONIQ’s front bumper rather than using the typical roof-mounted approach, retaining the new car’s sleek design. The car’s advanced self-driving systems are kept as simple as possible by integrating existing functions from the production model, including the Smart Cruise Control system’s forward-facing radar and Lane Keeping Assist cameras.

The system also uses a GPS antenna to search for a location of each vehicle and high-definition mapping software delivers pinpoint accuracy for location, road gradient and curvature, plus lane width and indication data. In addition, a Blind Spot Detection radar ensures that even simple lane changes are executed safely.

Hyundai Motor’s latest technology allows the cars to navigate the most challenging situations safely, including high levels of pedestrian traffic, stop lights and signs, road construction and road blocks, speed bumps, dogs, small children and even intersections without traffic signals. Through extensive testing in urban environments Hyundai Motor is continuing to develop and refine its self-driving technologies with the goal of using less computing power, resulting in a low-cost platform that the typical consumer can afford.
