Hyundai Motor Group Reveal Mobile Eccentric Droid (MobED) – an All-New Mobility Platform for Versatile Applications

Hyundai Motor Group (the Group) today revealed the Mobile Eccentric Droid (MobED), an all-new and pioneering small mobility platform using cutting-edge robotics technologies.

It’s flat, rectangular body rides on four large wheels, with an independent suspension that enables optimal body posture and stable movement even on inclined and uneven roads.

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, said Dong Jin Hyun, Head of Hyundai Motor Group Robotics Lab.

By being equipped with innovative technologies including an advanced ‘Eccentric Wheel’ drive and high-tech steering, braking and altitude control systems, the MobED adapts and realizes optimum posture on various road surfaces and environments. The three motors mounted to each wheel provide power and precise steering to the wheels while also controlling the overall posture of the body.

The intelligent design arrangement of each wheel featuring an individual power and steering control system enables in-place rotation and omnidirectional movement, which allows for highly effective mobility even in narrow situations. The eccentric mechanism-based posture control system also stabilizes the body attitude by adjusting the height of each wheel according to the ground environment.
