One of the main capabilities of many modern “smart” cars is autonomous movement inside buildings or even on city streets. However, developing such functionality from the ground up is challenging and costly, and this is where the Hyundai Plug & Drive (PnD) modular platform comes in handy.

Unveiled as a concept at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the PnD will be available in a variety of base frame sizes and configurations that will adapt to a wide variety of applications. Robotic carts will be able to move cargo containers, vending machines, furniture, robots or any other object and even a person.

The platform is supported by four battery-powered wheel units, each equipped with LiDAR sensors and cameras for navigation and obstacle avoidance. These components also control movement, braking, suspension, and steering — each wheel can be rotated 360 degrees, allowing the platform to move in any direction without pivoting, or pivoting in place . A basic PnD platform to which various payloads can be added.

Hyundai has unveiled several potential applications for the system, including both standalone and joystick-controlled rigs for moving loads and even passengers. Some of them can be seen in a presentation video posted by the company on YouTube.

At CES 2022, Hyundai Motor unveiled a total of 4 application conceptual models using the modular PnD platform, including Personal Mobility, Service Mobility, Logistics Mobility, and L7, all of which fit into the vast MoT ecosystem.

Hyundai has not yet announced whether the Plug & Drive platform will become a real commercial product.
