Every year, the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas gives automakers and technology companies the opportunity to show off their recent advances and upcoming technology. Hyundai stole the show this year with their self-driving version of the Ioniq, the future of autonomous driving. They also had a number of other contributions that attendees loved.
Catch up on everything you missed from CES 2017 so you can get excited about the future of Hyundai.
Meet the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq
The self-driving Ioniq was the most exciting contribution from Hyundai at this year’s CES, and for good reason. It was the perfect opportunity for the automaker to show off their sporty hatchback with its autonomous sensors and electric motor.
Hyundai says that this will actually be an affordable driverless vehicle, unlike the incredibly expensive models being produced by other automakers. The secret is the cheaper sensors and lower level of computing power. Instead of including every single piece of autonomous technology that is present in more expensive models, the Ioniq will focus on the most essential systems to provide affordability and plenty of style.
Catch Up On Other Hyundai Tech
Although the Ioniq stole the show, Hyundai also presented a self-driving concept that does everything you would ever want. The Mobility Vision concept actually turns your car into an extension of your home. In fact, this autonomous vehicle can park itself right next to your living room to become part of the furniture.
The driver’s seat sits on a pivoting and extendable arm that can replace your armchair. This way, you can seamlessly move from your home to your car, continuing activities while the Mobility Vision drives you to work.
Hyundai also took CES 2017 as an opportunity to show off innovations unrelated to the automotive world. The Hyundai Medical Exoskeleton, for example, can help paraplegics stand, sit, turn, and even navigate stairs. Hyundai Universal Medical Assist helps those who have limited muscular power, and the Hyundai Waist Exoskeleton gives hip and upper body support.
Check Out Current Hyundai Technology
With their presentations at CES 2017, Hyundai showed their clear commitment to advancing technology. While you will still have to wait a bit for some of the amazing tech to become available, the Hyundai vehicles that are currently on sale in Wilmington, North Carolina, already show off an incredible range of tech, such as Blue Link™.
