Hyundai Motor Group unveils Tiger uncrewed Ultimate Mobility Vehicle (UMV) concept, a robotic car capable to operate on the surface of another planet.
Hyundai’s first uncrewed ultimate mobility vehicle (UMV) concept is revealed as Tiger, which stands for transforming intelligent ground excursion robot.
Tiger is intended to carry payloads over remote and inaccessible terrain and designed to operate as a four-wheel drive vehicle or a four-legged walking machine.
The vehicle is being developed by Hyundai Motor Group’s New Horizons Studio in partnership with Autodesk and Sundberg-Ferar. New Horizons Studio is developing multiple technologies for innovative vehicle platforms.
“Vehicles like TIGER, and the technologies underpinning it, give us an opportunity to push our imaginations,” said Dr. John Suh, Head of New Horizons Studio. “We are constantly looking at ways to rethink vehicle design and development and re-define the future of transportation and mobility.”
