Hyundai Motor & Motional Highlight Safety of IONIQ 5–based Robotaxi

January 2023. Hyundai Motor Company announces launch of its all-electric IONIQ 5-based robotaxi in partnership with Motional, an autonomous driving joint venture between Hyundai Motor Group and Aptiv in late 2023 in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas is a hot spot for transient transportation, attracting up to 42.5 million visitors annually (its 2019 pre-pandemic high). As many visitors rely on taxis and ride-hailing services during their stay, the fully autonomous IONIQ 5 robotaxi will be the way for many of them to get around safely and securely.

The robotaxi is using more than 30 advanced sensors — a combination of cameras, radars and lidar — and onboard computing system to navigate safely and confidently in an unusual environment populated by oddly-shaped vehicles, such as stretch limousines and billboard trucks, and pedestrians in unusual costumes, acting unpredictably.

Following the roll-out in Vegas, IONIQ 5 robotaxi will also be available in Los Angeles, and eventually in other major cities both in the U.S. and globally. As part of its ongoing training regiment, the robotaxi is already learning how to master the narrow and curvy streets of Boston, navigate the street-level light rail service and protected bicycle lanes of San Diego and manage left-side traffic in Singapore.
