New Genesis G90 first spotted in testsAugust 24, 2020
Back in April, we reported that Hyundai Motor Group will debut LiDAR on the next generation Genesis G90 for the first time in a production vehicle.
It has been confirmed that the next generation of the G90 premium sedan will be equipped with a Level 3 autonomous driving system consisting of a camera-based radar and two lidars. His debut is scheduled for late 2021. We also know the model will retain the 5.0-liter V8 and get air suspension for the first time.
This is the first time we’ve seen the new Genesis luxury sedan in heavy camouflage, but there are a few key points that make it recognizable as the next generation Genesis, such as the taillights, which still have two lines.
The dual-radar LiDAR system will enable Level 3 autonomous driving based on a control algorithm developed by Hyundai Motor in addition to the existing sensor. The new generation G90 will be equipped with two radars on both sides of the front of the vehicle, enabling more advanced autonomous driving. In addition, more accurate work is possible even in cloudy weather.
“With one radar, autonomous driving is focused on the front, but installing the radar on the front on both sides is beneficial for a more complete autonomous technology, including proximity detection with another vehicle,” the company said.
Hyundai hardware (HW) camera, radar and lidar, three groups of sensor devices are combined into a single algorithm, and various sensor signals generated while driving are combined to provide an independent control algorithm that makes the best decisions in a given driving situation.
The new G90 is expected to be an important opportunity for Hyundai to lead technological advances in autonomous driving in the future. However, the model will not be presented until the end of 2021, so other automakers have time to present something similar.
