LAS VEGAS and SEOUL, South Korea, Jan. 6, 2022 – Hyundai brought their vision of the future to CES 2022. The company got on the main stage to outline what they refer to as the “metamobility” strategy where robots will adapt and mimic humanity’s capabilities.
At the Hyundai CES 2022 presentation on Jan. 4, the company shared how they believe their robotics business will drive “the paradigm shift towards future mobility, going beyond the traditional means of transportation to fulfill unlimited freedom of movement for mankind”. Boston Dynamics and Microsoft joined Hyundai Motor to share insights about pioneering new concepts of what Hyundai term ‘Metamobility’ and ‘Mobility of Things’ (MoT).
Hyundai headed to the show under the main theme of ‘Expanding Human Reach‘, and company representatives say that Hyundai Motor will demonstrate its future vision of how mobility in the real world can be advanced with robots, and also offer a glimpse of the future robotics society where robots will connect the virtual and real worlds.
The company also is exhibiting its robot product lineup, including the various applications of the new Plug & Drive (PnD) and Drive & Lift (DnL) modular platforms unveiled at the event as well as the recently revealed Mobile Eccentric Droid (MobED) and Boston Dynamics’ Spot® and Atlas™.
If you are in Las Vegas Hyundai will be utilizing four working models during three 20-minute-long robotics demonstration programs happening at the booth, at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. (PST). Their robot dog Spot® will perform a dance program, demonstrating its range of dynamic movements, and three robot models using PnD modules and DnL eccentric wheel technology will demonstrate their own types of dynamic movements on the theme of mobility.
