Motional worked with Hyundai to develop a fleet of Ioniq 5 electric cars with Level Four autonomous capabilities
Uber has partnered with American start-up Motional to launch a public robotaxi service in the US city of Las Vegas.
The service uses a fleet of Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric SUVs modified by the Korean car maker and Motional to be safe, reliable and cost-effective for the US market.
It’s fitted with 30 exterior sensors as well as cameras, radar and lidar systems to identify hazards at an “ultra-long range”, enabling Level Four autonomy.
That means the cars can drive themselves without driver intervention or attention, albeit under limited conditions, and within an approved (geofenced) area.
