Hyundai Motor Group Unveiled Tiger Uncrewed Ultimate Mobility Vehicle Concept. The first version of Tiger is X-1 (the X stands for experimental) and brings together a wide-range of technological and design expertise.
Car manufacturers are constantly looking at ways to rethink vehicle design and development and re-define the future of transportation and mobility. Hyundai’s first uncrewed ultimate mobility vehicle (UMV) concept is called 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.
Hyundai Motor Group has revealed TIGER (Transforming Intelligent Ground Excursion Robot), the company’s second Ultimate Mobility Vehicle (UMV) and the first designed to be uncrewed. The transforming intelligent ground excursion robot is designed to carry various types of payload while traveling over challenging terrain.
Concept vehicle showcases capability across remote and inaccessible terrain.
TIGER’s exceptional capabilities are designed to function as a mobile scientific exploration platform in extreme, remote locations. Based on a modular platform architecture, its features include a sophisticated leg and wheel locomotion system, 360-degree directional control, and a range of sensors for remote observation. It is also intended to connect to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which can fully charge and deliver TIGER to inaccessible locations.
This new vehicle concept is being developed by Hyundai Motor Group’s New Horizons Studio, headquartered in Mountain View, California. The studio was established in late 2020 to develop UMVs drawing on research and innovation leadership from Silicon Valley and other innovation hubs.
