the hyundai MobED can carry virtually anything – Designboom

 
 
ahead of CES 2022hyundai reveals the mobile eccentric droid (MobED) — a curious looking, four-wheeled robot that can carry virtually anything from point A to B. the MobED is equipped with 3 motors, weighs 50kg, and features an extendable wheelbase that adjusts to speed. the mobile droid also includes adaptable steering functions to keep it balanced on rough surfaces. coupled with a 2 kWh battery capacity and 12-inch tires, the MobEd becomes a ‘passe-partout’ butler that can complete 4-hour rides at up to 30km/h when fully charged.

in their playful video launch, the hyundai team breaks out some unusual — and equally funny — examples of how the mobile eccentric droid can be of use. from delivering packages to carrying a baby stroller and even serving a pyramid of champagne glasses, the possibilities go on. other examples show the four-wheeled robot holding a digital screen while a woman works out to display her progress, and a rollerskater zigzaging her way through a path with the robot  right behind her — lighting up, twisting, and turning to mimick her movements.

granted, most of the examples focus on playful and leisurly applications of the droid. but soon enough, it could very well support users who are physically less abled. ‘we have developed the MobED platform to overcome the limitations of existing indoor guide and service robots while maximizing its usability in cities by dramatically improving the platform’s overall mobility. we are also looking ahead to assess how potential users of MobED will further expand their needs and use for this type of technology,’  comments dong jin hyun, head of the hyundai motor group robotics lab. starting january 5, 2022, the MobED will be on display at hyundai’s CES booth in las vegas.
