All of the cool car companies have a venture-capital sandbox that ferrets out innovative entrepreneurs with ideas that need fostering. Hyundai's is called CRADLE. That's an acronym for Center for Robotic-Augmented Design in Living Experiences. Founded in November 2017, CRADLE has already invested in some 30 startups covering fields ranging from artificial intelligence, to robotics, smart cities, smart mobility, and energy. Shortly after the group was founded, Hyundai's executive vice chairman Mong-Koo Chung was walking around the CES show floor with CRADLE vice president John Suh and wondered aloud why nobody had crossed robotics with the automobile? Suh offered to give it a shot and his team dreamed up Elevate.

The concept is a modular go-anywhere electric vehicle that could be used for anything from rescue missions to exploration of other planets. The modular part involves a "skateboard" to which bodies suited to different purposes could be mounted. The go-anywhere part involves "legs" featuring five joints each that are capable of climbing a 5-foot wall or spanning a 5-foot gap, all while keeping the body level. The upper most "hip" joint and the lower ankle joints can both pivot and swivel, while the knee joint simply swings in one plane. With that many degrees of freedom, the vehicle can walk like a reptile or like a mammal. The "feet" feature electric wheel motors that can be locked with the help of electric brakes when walking and climbing, or can drive like a normal EV when Elevate crouches "down on its haunches."

That's the all-new Hyundai Elevate concept, an electric vehicle with robotic legs. Developed in a partnership between Hyundai ' s CRADLE disruptive innovations incubator and Detroit product innovation studio Sundberg-Ferar, the Elevate blends the worlds of robotic and automotive design to

The model on display at the 2019 CES unveiling is one-fifth scale, which would make the life-size concept body roughly the size of a Jeep Wrangler. The wheels scale to about 18-inch diameter and an airless tire concept like Michelin's Tweel is envisioned. The electric wheel motors at each wheel are reportedly of a daring new concept design under development at one of the CRADLE companies, featuring nearly flat rotor and stator geometry that promises triple the torque-to-weight of conventional motors.

A functional one-tenth-scale proof-of-concept model has been built and tested, and after the team carefully modeled the elevation and obstacles the fabled Rubicon Trail presents, it determined that the battery capacity needed to negotiate an entire 22-mile up-and-back transit of the trail would require a battery pack about 1.5-times the size of a BMW i3 (currently 42 kW-hr). We forgot to ask how much energy legs can regenerate during the climb back down, but we're guessing it's less than when wheel motors do the job.

Hyundai Elevate Concept Steps Into CES As A Car With Legs

Hyundai Elevate Concept Steps Into CES As A Car With Legs The Elevate will be one of the weirdest sights at CES. Is a vehicle that can walk still a car? Hyundai will answer this odd question at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show on January 7 by unveiling the Elevate concept. Like a traditional automobile, it'll have four wheels, but the weird machine will also be able to walk on long appendages that will allow for getting around in extremely treacherous terrain. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Hyundai showed its electric rescue vehicle Elevate with four robotic legs at CES that can climb or drive in adverse conditions. Meet Elevate , a creature-like walking car . Hyundai called it a "last 100 yards" solution, a play on the "last mile." It' s been dubbed a "Ultimate Mobility Vehicle ," or UMV .

Hyundai envisions Elevate easily operating in autonomous mode, but manned driving presents the tricky problem of what the controls would look like for a vehicle with 24 degrees of freedom. Interesting use cases presented in the launch video include being able to walk itself out of a snow bank if slippery conditions send it off the road, and use as a paratransport taxi capable of half climbing the stairs to an urban brownstone allowing a wheelchair-bound clients to roll aboard with ease.

For now this is purely a concept, but it's concepts like this that really grab the headlines at a widgets and gadgets show like CES.
