What is Robotaxi?

The robotaxi is a SAE level 4 autonomous vehicle that can safely operate without a driver. This vehicle marks the collaboration of two most advanced and important technologies in the automobile world- automation and electrification. That’s right. The robotaxi is an all-electric vehicle, none other than the Hyundai IONIQ 5 launched last year in the US.

What is special about the Hyundai IONIQ 5 Robotaxi?

With a technology-driven design the IONIQ 5 robotaxi displays its sensor suite across the exterior and is thus easily distinguishable from the human-piloted vehicles. This vehicle has over thirty different sensors including the cameras, radars, and lidars. The sensors help provide accurate 360-degree perception, high resolution images and long-distance object detection. And all of this collectively works for a safe and autonomous driving experience in different environments.

Hyundai has partnered with Motional on this project. Their driverless technology will be used in these taxis. This incorporates advanced machine learning systems that have been trained on decades of real-world data. All of this helps enable the vehicle to safely navigate challenging and complex driving situations.

When will Robotaxis be available in the US?

Hyundai is planning to work on these IONIQ 5 robotaxis throughout the next year. We should be able to see commercial driverless public ride-hail robotaxis in the US by 2023.
