The IONIQ 5 robotaxi has a technology-driven design that displays its sensor suite throughout the exterior, making it visibly distinct from human-piloted taxis. This robotaxi is equipped with over thirty different sensors, including cameras, radars, and lidars. These sensors aid in accurate 360-degree perception, high-resolution photos, and object detection across great distances. All of these things collectively work to provide a safe and autonomous driving experience in a variety of situations.

Hyundai has collaborated with Motional on this initiative, and these vehicles will be equipped with Motional’s acclaimed driverless technology. Advanced machine learning algorithms have already been trained on decades of real-world data to implement this technology. All of this aids the vehicle’s ability to safely negotiate challenging and critical driving scenarios.
