The Russian company Yandex has revealed its autonomous prototype of a 2020 Hyundai Sonata. The car is the result of a partnership between Yandex and Hyundai's car parts division, Mobis. The partnership worked for six weeks to incorporate with self-driving technology into the car. The autonomous prototype is able to drive with no human intervention, placing the car at Level 4 and Level 5 on autonomous driving scales. The car receives high self-driving sources due to the sensor suite, cameras, and software which is incorporated into the vehicle's design.
Yandex has been investing large amounts of time and resources into self-driving technology -- the company already has 50 Toyota Prius models, which have been modified with self-driving technology. Yandex plans to continue this effort, with a total of 100 autonomous vehicles by the end of the year.
