Hyundai unveils Tiger X-1 delivery robot concept that can drive and walk

Hyundai has unveiled the Tiger X-1 delivery robot concept. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it can not only ride, but also switch to walking to overcome various obstacles. The development is designed for autonomous operation in extreme conditions, for example, even on the moon.

how notes CNET News, The Tiger X-1 closely resembles a simplified version of the Hyundai Elevate pleasure car shown at CES 2019. The company is likely continuing to experiment with different robot formats.

The Tiger X-1 robot was developed with input from Autodesk experts and industrial design consultants from Sundberg-Ferar. A distinctive feature of the novelty is the variability of movement: its legs can be folded or lengthened depending on the type of road. For example, to overcome uneven terrain, the robot can switch to walking. It is also equipped with 28 position sensors and 28 different motors. The omnidirectional design allows you to move in any direction at the same speed.

Presumably, the Tiger X-1 can be used for scientific expeditions or the delivery of goods such as medical supplies to natural disasters. At the presentation, a Hyundai representative noted that the design of the robot was developed taking into account compatibility with air taxi, with the help of which it can be sent to hard-to-reach and remote areas.

Plans for the implementation of this concept have not been specified, but it is likely that the developments will be developed in other projects. As journalists note, the idea of ​​a walking robot can be applied to create vehicles for people with disabilities.

The development of the Tiger X-1 fits into Hyundai’s public business strategy. In October 2019, the chairman of the company, Chung Eui-sun statedthat robotics will become one of the key areas, which in the future they want to devote about 20% of the business.

At the end of 2020, Hyundai Motor Group bought about 80% of Boston Dynamics. The automaker paid $ 880 million for this.
