Hyundai Motor Europe GmbH | Hyundai Motor Group Reveal Mobile Eccentric Droid (MobED) – an All-New Mobility Platform for Versatile Applications

Hyundai Motor Group (the Group) revealed the Mobile Eccentric Droid (MobED), an all-new and pioneering small mobility platform utilizing cutting-edge robotics applied sciences.

The MobED has an revolutionary design association. It’s flat, rectangular physique rides on 4 massive wheels, with an unbiased suspension that allows optimum physique posture and steady motion even on inclined and uneven roads. This suspension permits the platform to maneuver by means of advanced city environments by freely adjusting its wheelbase and steering angles.

“We have developed the MobED platform to overcome the limitations of existing indoor guide and service robots while maximizing its usability in cities by dramatically improving the platform’s overall mobility,” mentioned Dong Jin Hyun, Head of Hyundai Motor Group Robotics Lab. “We are also looking ahead to assess how potential users of MobED will further expand their needs and use for this type of technology.”

By being geared up with revolutionary applied sciences together with a sophisticated ‘Eccentric Wheel’ drive and high-tech steering, braking and altitude management programs, the MobED adapts and realizes optimum posture on varied highway surfaces and environments. The three motors mounted to every wheel present energy and exact steering to the wheels whereas additionally controlling the general posture of the physique.

The clever design association of every wheel that includes a person energy and steering management system permits in-place rotation and omnidirectional motion, which permits for extremely efficient mobility even in slim conditions. The eccentric mechanism-based posture management system additionally stabilizes the physique perspective by adjusting the peak of every wheel in keeping with the bottom surroundings. The MobED’s 12-inch pneumatic tires additional assist to soak up bumps and vibrations.

MobED measures 67 cm lengthy, 60 cm extensive, 33 cm excessive, and weighs 50 kg. Its wheelbase expands to 65 cm for optimum stability in high-speed driving after which scales all the way down to 45 cm for low-speed maneuvers in additional advanced environments. Its most velocity is 30 km/h, permitting for round 4 hours of driving on a single cost with a battery capability of two kWh.

Designed for full versatility and modularity, the MobED might be utilized for varied functions, relying on the mounted system. The Group expects the platform’s wheel adjustability, compact physique dimension and low vibration capabilities to make it an optimum know-how answer for supply, guiding and filming gear. Thanks to its excellent maneuverability, the platform can be used for service robots that may function each indoors and outside.

MobED can be utilized as a mobility system for the aged or the disabled when the platform is sufficiently elevated for individuals to mount it. It can be used as a stroller or leisure car. Hyundai Motor Group shall be at CES 2022, Jan. 5-8, 2022. At the occasion, Hyundai Motor will current its future imaginative and prescient with robotics. The MobED may also be on show at Hyundai Motor’s sales space.
