Autonomous vehicle operating system under development at Hyundai

LinkedIn +

Hyundai Motor has introduced the autonomous Ioniq concept. In the development of this vehicle, the goal was to keep the self-driving systems as simple as possible. This was accomplished by using the production car’s smart cruise control’s forward-facing radar and lane-keeping assist cameras, which are integrated with lidar technology.

The auto maker is also developing its own autonomous vehicle operating system, which will use less computing power. This low-cost platform will be installed in future Hyundai models that the average consumer can afford.

Earlier this year, Hyundai Motor earned a license to test its autonomous cars in urban environments and is currently testing three autonomous Ioniqs and two autonomous Tucson fuel cell vehicles at the Hyundai Motor Research and Development Center in Namyang, South Korea.
