Unstoppable Four-Legged 4x4 Robo-Car from Hyundai

Hyundai has unveiled its newest robo-car concept, the Elevate walking four legged walking robot concept car at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. While Hyundai does offer a full lineup of cars and SUVs, none of them have the ability to literally walk on the terrain.

Hyundai says that the Elevate concept is perfect for first responders, since it s robotic legs allow users to drive, walk or even climb over the most treacherous terrain, which makes it the perfect walking all-terrain vehicle concept after a natural disaster. The Elevate concept is an Ultimate Mobility Vehicle, which uses technology from electric cars and robots.

“When a tsunami or earthquake hits, current rescue vehicles can only deliver first responders to the edge of the debris field. They have to go the rest of the way by foot. Elevate can drive to the scene and climb right over flood debris or crumbled concrete,” said John Suh, Hyundai vice president and head of Hyundai CRADLE. “This technology goes well beyond emergency situations – people living with disabilities worldwide that don’t have access to an ADA ramp could hail an autonomous Hyundai Elevate that could walk up to their front door, level itself, and allow their wheelchair to roll right in – the possibilities are limitless.”

The Elevate concept can also take many different forms, since it’s based on a modular EV platform with the capability to switch out different bodies for specific situations. The robotic legs can also fold up when the vehicle is in drive mode to allow the concept to reach highway speeds. When the terrain gets tough, the Elevate concept can also climb over five foot wall, step over a five foot gap, walk over diverse terrain, and achieve a 15 foot wide track width.
