The Hyundai 'TIGER X-1' has been shown off as a concept by the Hyundai Motor Group as a futuristic solution that would enable explorers and researchers alike to easily traverse rugged terrain. The robot features a series of strong legs and a durable chassis that would enable the Ultimate Mobility Vehicle (UMV) to move with purpose over any uneven surface. This would make it ideal for natural environments, alien landscapes or anywhere else and would also be well-suited for 360-degree surface evaluation.
The Hyundai 'TIGER X-1' is expected to be prototyped in the next few years with a purchasable unit about five years out from now. The mobility robot will also be evolved into a passenger vehicle to help further extend its capabilities.
