Hyundai Mobis and Russian tech giant Yandex have unveiled their first prototype of a self-driving Hyundai Sonata 2020. The new Sonata’s technology platform enables the easy integration of Yandex’s self-driving hardware and software with minimal modifications.
Yandex received the first Sonata at the end of May 2019 and has been operating the modified vehicle 24/7 within a closed track environment. Tests include various weather and simulated traffic situations, some involving other self-driving cars. Yandex plans to start operating the vehicle on the public streets of Moscow shortly.
