Hyundai Expands or Replaces Human Reach at CES?

Hyundai will present its future mobility vision “Expanding Human Reach” vision at CES 2022 with the irony being a focus on robotics and the metaverse.

In what some may see as replacing human reach, the automaker says it will show how its robotics business will drive the paradigm shift towards future mobility, “going beyond the traditional means of transportation and fulfilling mankind’s aspiration for unlimited freedom of movement”. It will share its vision of how robotics will complete the metaverse by connecting the virtual world with reality as a medium and “overcome the physical limitations of movement regarding time and space”.

It will also showcase its PnD (Plug & Drive) robotic module platform under the concept of Mobility of Things (MoT), which aims for the provision of mobility in everything, from traditionally inanimate objects to even community spaces.

It says visitors will be able to experience how mobility in the real world can be advanced with robots and be offered a glimpse of the future robotics society, which will enable transportation between the virtual and real world. On show will be its robot product line-up, including the recently revealed Mobile Eccentric Droid (MobED) as well as Boston Dynamics’ Spot and AtlasTM. The press event will also be livestreamed via the company’s YouTube channel.
