Parking, crab walking, and zero turn can all be made easier with the 90-degree spinning wheel.

Hyundai Mobis has created a next-generation car wheel technology that enables for 90-degree parking and in-place rotation, both of which are necessary for making PBVs (Purpose Built Vehicles).

  • The concept was first shown at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
  • Mechanical connections between pieces are no longer required with this module.
  • Hyundai Mobis is aiming for PBV applications by 2025.

The e-corner module, which integrates the steering, braking, suspension and driving methods right into a wheel, shifts the paradigm of an vehicle to make use of the mechanical axis to attach the steering wheel. Additionally it is recognised because the core know-how for future good metropolis mobility.

The idea nook module was first unveiled on the 2018 CES. Now, Hyundai Mobis has efficiently redefined the idea for sensible use on automobiles and has developed an ECU for management. Hyundai has additionally accomplished the purposeful testing, and as soon as it’s executed with reliability verification and a feasibility research on mass manufacturing, it plans to start enterprise mass manufacturing orders from international automobile makers for its utility.

Key advantages

The most important benefit of the e-corner module is that it doesn’t require any mechanical connection between elements, which thereby permits higher use of house inside the car. Not solely does it make it simpler to vary the wheelbase, however it additionally ensures rather more flexibility in designing the course of doorways and the dimensions of the car. It’s important for making PBVs which are designed to supply mobility providers, for instance, for cafes and hospitals.

In comparison with conventional 30-degree rotation, the e-module permits 90-degree rotation of the wheel when wanted, for instance, parking and permits crab (sideways) driving and zero-turn – rotation with out transferring ahead or backward. Additionally it is anticipated to extend the agility of a car operating by way of the slender streets of town and accordingly enhance the city driving atmosphere.

“The e-corner module is a sophisticated know-how that not many have had a lot success with, relating to its mass manufacturing at a worldwide stage,” stated Hyundai Mobis. They declare they’ve managed to efficiently develop this, with the necessities being to mix the steering, braking, suspension and driving methods into one wheel, whereas on the identical time, making certain driving security.

In contrast to different auto elements producers who make particular elements, Hyundai Mobis says it’s able to growing key elements which are utilized in automobiles – together with steering, braking, connectivity and electrification elements – and the synergy between these elements has been useful in growing the e-corner module.

Hyundai Mobis plans to develop a skateboard module by 2023 for the implementation of real-world car efficiency by way of the built-in management of 4 e-corner modules after which combining it with the automated driving management know-how to in the end present a PBV mobility resolution in 2025.
