Hyundai Introduces new Autonomous IONIQ Concept at LA Motor Show
 

This is the fourth new variant in Hyundai’s IONIQ line targeted at affordable and integrated software.

Hyundai just revealed a new IONIQ concept at the LA Motor Show. This will be the fourth IONIQ concept by Hyundai. However this concept will not be applied for production, but instead is a step towards affordable integration of software and hardware.  

Integration of hardware is something Hyundai is very proud of in their abilities. Hyundai is particularly happy about their ability to position the lidar system in the front bumper.

According to Hyundai this placement of the lidar light allows their car to look like a real car rather than a high school science project. 

In the newly revealed IONIQ concept the three lidar sensors are also combined with a variety of other systems. The lidar sensors will also be linked with the car's Smart Cruise Control, the lane assist camera and the blind-spot radar.

In such a way Hyundai has ensured efficiency of a Hyundai autonomous car. Hyundai stated integrating these sensors into the existing car parts also makes coming up with an autonomous technology quite simpler and cheaper.

What is really interesting about the placement of the sensors in this new concept are their new features. The new sensors have been equipped with a GPS antenna, high-definition mapping data along with a three-camera system.

Al of this has been installed behind the windshield so the detection of pedestrians is relatively simple along with lane markings, and traffic signals.

Hyundai already has three different car made from the IONIQ concept currently undergoing testing in South Korea. The IONIQ cars are not just autonomous but also equipped with hydrogen fuel cell Tucsons.

Hyundai also plans to bring two fot he IONIQ autonomous car to the upcoming CES 2017 show in Las Vegas.
