South Korean companies Hyundai and KIA continue to implement their environmental program. They received a license from Nevada authorities that allows semi-autonomous vehicles to be tested on public roads throughout the city of Beatty. (Apparently no such decision has been made in Korea.) Tests include the Tucson Fuel Cell crossover with hydrogen fuel cells and the Kia Soul EV electric hatchback. When making a decision, the recognition of pedestrians, cyclists, traffic lights, road signs, urban infrastructure and the like, as well as various meteorological conditions are evaluated.
“Thanks to the US resolution, we can accelerate testing of our autonomous driving technologies, which are currently in early stages of development,” said Hyundai Vice President Von Lim (pictured left). Next to him is Robin Olender of the Nevada government.
Kia engineers have combined their driving skills and the ability to park autopilot in ADAS (Advanced System Assistance Driver). Investments in its development in 2018 will amount to $ 2 billion. The semi-autonomous production car will appear at the end of the decade.
The Tucson crossover features advanced cruise control, multiple cameras, radars and sensors, including ultrasonic sensors and laser rangefinders. Tucson boasts an unmanned interval autonomous driving mode, traffic jams at speeds up to 60 km / h, a narrow route assist system and an emergency stop system. . Hyundai notes that fully autonomous management of the company will become a reality in 2030. The Koreans claim they were the first automaker to launch a semi-autonomous hydrogen car on normal roads, but this is not the case. For example prototype Mercedes-Benz F 015 fuel cells have already been seen on the streets of San Francisco (video evidence of this).
