How to Avoid Traffic Accidents on Road

traffic accidents

80% of traffic accidents that occur on our roads can avoid, human failures are the main factor by which these tragedies occur on the roads.

Faults attributable to the car in traffic accidents are also noteworthy, but we return to the same. Most of them are avoidable since the human factor also intervenes, although in this case, in another sense, the maintenance of the car.

When we say that accidents can be avoided, in the case of car failure, it is clear that if we carry out a check and maintenance of our car ( brakes, tires, steering, etc.), we reduce the risk by 80%.

On the road, caution and anticipation in driving are the main rules that we should all follow to avoid many of the problems that arise.

From, we wanted to convey a series of interesting tips to reduce the risk of traffic accidents.

traffic accidents

1. Blind spots

It is important to have the blind spots of our car identified; these depend on the design and size of the car. So that these points do not cause you conflict, use the side mirrors and the rearview mirror and remember that large vehicles have a greater number of blind spots, so you have a little more caution.

2. Traffic lights

When changing the green light, do not accelerate immediately, verify the crossing to avoid the reckless that passed the orange light.

3. Curves

You should always take the curves with caution, slow down when you are still on the straight, never brake inside the curve.

traffic accidents

4. Give way

They give way; you have to respect them and not reach them abruptly or aggressive braking, so anticipation is very important.

5. Speed

Respect the speed limits and the direction of the streets, never try to overtake the wrong lane. In most countries, the lane to advance left, so do not advance on the right if you are on the road. It is very advisable to maintain a constant speed within the established limits, and it is not convenient to constantly change lanes since you multiply the chances of making a mistake.

6. Intersections

It is advisable to look at both sides of the road several times before crossing streets where several directions meet, respect the traffic lights, and turn so that each lane advances.

7. Keep distance

Getting used to not getting too attached to the car ahead, because if for some extraordinary situation we need to brake quickly, the consequence will be to have an accident with complete safety. The recommended distance on the road is between 8 and 10 meters minimum, and it goes without saying that if it is raining or slowing down, the distance has to be greater.

traffic accidents

8. The weather

Always try to leave with 10 or 15 minutes of tolerance, never drive under the pressure of time; it is the most vulnerable time to have an accident. Driving with stress causes you to lose 70 percent attention.

9. Preventive maintenance

Performs maintenance services in the appropriate timeframes, taking it to review before going on the road. Periodically check that the tires are perfect, that the brakes work well, the levels are at the recommended amount, etc.

10. Equipment

You must know how your car works, how it reacts, and its possibilities on the road; this will allow you to overcome any obstacle better.

Hyundai Develops Portable Exoskeleton for Industrial Workers

Hyundai develops portable exoskeleton for industrial workers

Hyundai Motor Group developed the new Vest Exoskeleton (VEX), a rigid and portable frame, created to help industrial workers who spend long hours working in high altitude environments.

This exoskeleton improves productivity and minimizes the fatigue of industrial operators by mimicking the movement of human joints, optimizing load support, and mobility. The polycentric axis portable vest combines several pivot points with multi-link muscle support, allowing it to function without the need for a battery.

The VEX weighs 2.5 kilos, so it is between 22% and 42% lighter than competing products, portability is one of its advantages, as it fits like a backpack, through straps and buckles, with those that fit the shoulders, chest, and waist. The posterior section extends up to 18 cm in length to adapt to different textures; Likewise, the degree of strength assistance can regulate in six levels, up to a maximum of 5.5 kilos.

Hyundai develops portable exoskeleton for industrial workers

The device was developed to assist mainly the workers of the vehicle production lines, whose operation is carried out in higher planes, collaborating, for example, the operators who screw the lower part of the vehicles, to whom they install brake pipes and the ones in charge of connecting the leaks.

The Group is considering implementing VEX in different plants around the world. It is expected to market it through a subsidiary and would cost up to 30% less than existing products, which cost close to the US $ 5,000.

On the other hand, the conglomerate announces that, as part of its plans to develop a wide range of robotic technologies, it will soon begin marketing the “Chairless Exoskeleton” (CEX). Another device that helps workers maintain a sitting position, No need to have a chair. With a weight of just 1.6 kilos, the lightweight device is very durable and is capable of supporting weights of up to 150 kilos.

Hyundai Develops Intelligent Cruise Control Based on Machine Learning

Hyundai Motor

Hyundai Motor Group ( HMG ) announces the development of the first Intelligent Cruise Control based on Machine Learning (SCC-ML). It is a technology that determines and incorporates driving patterns in its autonomous driving program. So it offers a personalized experience to the driver.

This technology, planned to be implemented in future Hyundai and Kia vehicles, uses artificial intelligence (AI) as part of the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) function. While this last resource maintains a speed determined by the driver and preserves the distance of the vehicle that rolls forward, the system automatically learns the patterns and driving habits of the person at the wheel.

This way is how the system works: first, the sensors, the front camera, and the radar collect management information permanently and send it to the central unit, where relevant details are processed and determined to identify the patterns. This whole process is carried out with an AI technology called machine learning algorithm.

Hyundai Motor

Such patterns consider three aspects: distance of vehicles traveling in front, speed to accelerate, and responsiveness of the driver to driving conditions. Similarly, the driving and speed variables also take into account.

For example, the system learns that during urban driving, a shorter distance must maintain with the preceding vehicle, but that it must be greater when driving in the fast lane. Considering the diversity of conditions, the analysis of the SCC-ML allows distinguishing more than 10 thousand patterns, so the flexible technology of its Intelligent Cruise Control allows it to adapt to the patterns of any driver.

The driving pattern information is updated permanently so that you can determine the driving style at any time. Finally, the system is programmed to avoid learning erratic or insecure patterns, thereby increasing reliability and safety.

Central Side Airbag: Hyundai Gives More Safety for the Customer


Hyundai wants to continue ensuring the safety of its occupants, and, for this, it has developed the central side airbag designed to protect the head.

Currently, car companies are showing great concern for the care of our planet, but they must also ensure the safety of passengers. Hyundai, aware of this, has decided to go further by developing the central side airbag. It is a new safety measure that will offer more excellent protection for the occupants of its vehicles. Thanks to its presence, head injuries can be substantially reduced in the event of an accident. One of the most delicate areas of the human body, and whose protection helps prevent other injuries from occurring.


Thanks to the presence of this new airbag, the Korean firm aims to prevent damage to the passengers in the front seats. The seat is hidden inside the driver’s seat and the co-driver and will only deploy in case someone is sitting in either of the two places. Thus considerably reducing the damage of the occupants.

And it is that Hyundai estimates that through the medial side, airbag head injuries caused by the collision of passengers with each other is reduced by 80 %. This figure is undoubtedly very hopeful since it represents a considerable increase in the safety of the occupants of a vehicle.

On the other hand, its design will allow the weight of the occupant himself not to cause the structure to yield, allowing the head to strike. To achieve this, Hyundai engineers have developed an internal fastening strap that allows the airbag to keep its shape intact to ensure that the occupant of the vehicle does not move.


Gradually this system will be implemented in the range of Hyundai models since the brand itself expects the United States to take into account the side impact in the tests next year. With this premise, the Korean firm will be able to increase its excellent reputation in terms of safety. A section in its vehicles has already stood out, as demonstrated by the 12 TOP SAFETY PICK + awards awarded by the IIHS.

The reason is how Hyundai intends to ensure the safety of occupants with an airbag, which most likely adapts sooner or later to rear seats. With this premise, the Korean firm has managed to have a clear commitment. It not only with the care of the environment but also with its customers, who will be more protected. Thanks to this security measure, that will gradually be present throughout the range of models.

2019 Hyundai Veloster N First Drive Review, How Reliable Is It?

Hyundai Veloster N

With the 2019 Veloster N, Hyundai housing has added a critical pillar to its U.S. market appeal. Over the last two decades, the South Korean automaker has improved vehicle quality and styling to compete directly with Japanese and American players. With the introduction of N Performance, the company can finally switch from defense to offense. Compelling, attainable performance products like the Veloster N will re-shape young customer opinions (the most important demographic for mainstream brands) like never before. For our part, we can’t wait to sink our teeth into more N Performance goodness.

Hyundai Veloster N

New Features

Open either of the Veloster N‘s front doors and you’ll notice N-specific sill panels and floor mats. Other changes from the standard Veloster include sport seats covered in grippy cloth with blue accent stitching, blue seatbelts, a unique steering wheel and an N gauge cluster with an integrated shift indicator light. Delve into the Veloster N’s infotainment system and you’ll discover adjustable settings for most of the mechanical parts.

The Engine

The Veloster N is powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 250 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The optional Performance Package’s hotter ECU tune pops my tester up to 275 horsepower and extends the same 260 pound-feet of torque further up in the rev range to 4,700 rpm instead of just 4,000 rpm for the standard car.

The Veloster N utilizes a tuned version of the Sonata Turbo’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, producing 250 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Peak torque checks in at just 1,450 rpm and holds on until near the fuel cut-off at 6,750 pm. A six-speed manual gearbox is the only transmission option and features a reinforced clutch, shorter shift throws, and clearer gate separation and gear engagement than the unit found in the Veloster Turbo. The powertrain is mounted on improved bushings that are stiffer but still offer good NVH.

Hyundai Veloster N

Standard Convenience Features

The 2019 Veloster N’s list of standard convenience features is solid but lacks the upgradable content of its competitors. An 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth connectivity. Navigating the crisp, responsive display is painless and aided by a set of physical buttons and knobs below the screen. A TFT display between the tach and speedo shows media, vehicle speed, and telemetry information.

The Turbo

The turbo is a twin-scroll design. That helps the engine build power right off idle and gives the 3100-pound Veloster an eye-opening ferocity as the LEDs above the gauges announce that you’re about to hit the 6750-rpm redline. How quick this car remains to be seen, but we can say that it comes across as much quicker than Hyundai‘s claimed 6.1-second 0-to-62-mph time for the 275-hp version. It’s a mean-sounding little bastard too, with a phlegmy gruffness from the intake and an optional electronically adjustable exhaust system.

Hyundai Veloster N

Pricing will be around $28,000 to start and $30K for Ns with Performance Package. That puts it beneath the GTI and Type-R, but above the Civic Si (which is not available as a hatch). While the GTI is more refined and a better all-around car, the Veloster N is close enough in terms of on-street poise that with the value pricing, it will serve as a tempting alternative. And it’s almost certainly more track-ready as it sits on the showroom floor.

2020 Hyundai Venue Review: High Tech System

Hyundai Venue

When Hyundai first revealed that they were releasing another utility model in time for the 2019 New York Auto Show, we were curious to see what exactly the Korean car giant had in mind. We spent a fair amount of time on paved, unpaved and partially paved road sections, the latter revealing the limits to which the suspension is willing to absorb bumps. Unkempt city streets will probably be rough, too, if the U.S.-spec dampers are similar. The Venue’s ground clearance, like the Kona’s, is a modest 6.7 inches, which doesn’t allow for much suspension travel to soak up impacts. But it’s more than sufficient to keep its short overhangs from grazing driveways or aggressive speed humps.

Inside, the 8.0-inch touchscreen is nicely integrated into the dash with vents on either side. There are good old-fashioned knobs for volume and radio tuning as well as HVAC controls. The bin to store the phone sits below the USB and 12-volt power outlets. In the base model, there is only one USB outlet in the front instead of two, and the second row has no air vents or USB outlets. The Venue is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible and navigation is an option, as is satellite radio. Other options include push-button start, heated front seats and side mirrors, and a sunroof.

In designing the Venue Hyundai seems to have taken a balanced approach. So it does feature the rather traditional SUV shape with a flat bonnet and boxy lines but with nice rounded edges that give it an almost friendly appearance. And while the shape is conventional, the new setup adds a very nice factor to the design as well. The rear is also fairly conventional but the crystalline effect in the taillights and the shape and placement of the rear fog lamps and their square shape add just enough to keep things interesting.

Hyundai Venue

The Venue will only be offered with front-wheel drive, just like the Nissan Kicks. Hyundai executives said they’re open to the idea of adding an all-wheel drive, but it isn’t a huge priority for a vehicle like a Venue. Instead, the tiny SUV comes with a “snow” drive mode that might help matters a bit in slippery conditions.

Also, the new Venue from Hyundai for 2020 is a Korean sports utility vehicle that is breaking with the past habits of this manufacturer by aiming for the top of the market, relying on a complete set of equipment, some powerful engines, and excellent handling to seduce motorists. This most recent version of the Venue from Hyundai is advanced enough to be noted, and this sports utility vehicle is not without its capabilities behind its style: it is also a model that offers plenty of great pieces of equipment either for the cabin or for its advanced motor. It must be said that many of the manufacturers of sports utility vehicles are beginning to compete for the favors of city dwellers who want to be fashionable.

Hyundai Venue

Hyundai was very quick to point out that all the things you can see and touch are different between the two vehicles, from the styling to the interior materials and switches to the graphics in the multimedia screen and instrument panel. On the flip side, that suggests that the things you can’t see are similar. The two vehicles share a powertrain, an all-wheel-drive system (with a locking center differential), and the same basic body structure and wheelbase. Even the interior dimensions for the legroom in each of the three rows are identical.

2020 Hyundai Sonata Upgrade Its Autonomy With a New Sunroof

Hyundai Sonata

The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 2020 will arrive with a sunroof system that would increase autonomy, after a year, by 1,300 kilometers.

After the release of the details on its new Active Shift Control, ASC technology for hybrid cars, Hyundai wanted to present the first model that equips this new gearbox. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 2020, that based on the latest generation of the Hyundai Sonata, the hybrid model features distinctive design features, including the cascade grille with cross holes and the rear wing integrated, harmoniously, with the taillights.

Aerodynamic-style alloy wheels are also exclusive to the Sonata Hybrid and are said to provide detailed and tuned aerodynamics.

Hyundai Sonata
Another visible change compared to conventional Hyundai Sonata models is the sunroof system that makes its debut at the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. The system is capable of recharging the battery to increase autonomy while avoiding unnecessary battery discharge.

According to the brand itself, six hours of daily charge would give the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid with a sunroof an additional autonomy of 1,300 kilometers each year.

The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 2020 also stands out for becoming the first model of the brand that equips the new technology called Active Shift Control, ASC. ASC can reduce the gear change time by 30%. It does this by applying a new control logic software to the hybrid control unit and the headlamp unit, HCU, which then controls the electric motor to align the motor and transmission rotation speeds.

Hyundai Sonata
The benefits cited by Hyundai include improved acceleration performance, fuel economy, and transmission durability, as the ASC minimizes friction during a gear change. Kyung Joon Chang, head of the Hyundai Motor Group, said, “the development of the world’s first ASC technology is a remarkable innovation. That incorporates precise engine control into the automatic transmission.” “It will not only save fuel but also provide a more fun driving experience for our customers.”
Conventional hybrid vehicles do not have torque converters to improve fuel economy further since torque converters lose energy during the transmission process. Although efficient in fuel consumption, this system also requires longer change times to ensure smoother gear changes.

ASC technology allows the hybrid electric motor to also control gear changes by applying new software. Logic to the hybrid control unit (HCU) to mitigate problems with the slowest shift time. The HCU controls the speed of rotation of the transmission with a sensor installed inside the electric motor at 500 times per second to quickly synchronize the rotation speed with that of the engine.

With synchronization, the change time is reduced by 30% from 500 ms to 350 ms. This result not only improves the acceleration performance and fuel economy of the hybrid vehicle but also the durability of the transmission by minimizing friction during a gear change.

Free to Install a Charging Point With the Purchase of Hyundai Electric Model


Hyundai has just announced that, with the acquisition of one of its electric vehicles, a charging point will install for free in our home.

The electrical sector actively established in the contemporary market, but, even so, many aspects must be polished to fit diligently. For this, Hyundai has decided to move more and more regularly in this segment and offer a desirable option, and that will make many potential customers opt for a vehicle of the Korean house. To be more specific, the firm will give a charging point to anyone who has one of its electric models. Undoubtedly a gift that will facilitate coexistence with this new life support for the car.


To make this possible, Hyundai has joined forces Fenie Energy, one of the leading companies in electricity, gas, and energy-saving services. Thanks to this coalition, customers of the Korean firm will be able to enjoy a free charging station in their home. They are allowing not only to power their electric vehicle at home but also to do it in the fastest and fastest way — efficient possible.

To make things even more comfortable, both companies have chosen the 7.4 kW next charger, one of the latest models on the market. Thanks to its technology, it will be possible to manage the charging periods using a mobile application or by Bluetooth. With the aim that we do not need to be at home to start refueling.


Safety is also present in this system, something of which the protections against surges and shunts in both AC and DC attest. However, the customer’s home must have a series of conditions to carry out the installation. This reason is why a specialized technician will visit each house and thus answer any questions about both the charger and the Hyundai electric models.

The installation involves 40 meters away and three steps of walls or slabs, at the same time as carrying out the legalization procedures. Once carried out, it will be possible that both the electric Hyundai Ioniq and the electric Kona can supply in the garage of our house without the need to resort to a conventional outlet.

Thanks to this proposal by the Korean brand and Genie Energy, electric vehicles will have a much higher appeal. If we add to this the possibility of having a zero label and more than enough autonomy to cover urban routes, we find a formula that will be difficult to beat for its main competitors.

More Dynamic Led Headlights and Stylish: The 2020 Hyundai i10

Hyundai i10

The new Hyundai i10 will be released at the Frankfurt Motor Show and will show more “energetic and agile” lines according to the brand itself.

An official sketch of the upcoming Hyundai i10 2020 has just published. This urban car will live its premiere in society during the Frankfurt Motor Show next September. Like all sketches of this type, it is too stylized, and the real vehicle will not have the same dramatic and aggressive proportions.

That said, we gave a good idea of ​​his new “face.” The brand says it looks “energetic and agile,” and we are willing to agree.

Hyundai i10

The front of the new Hyundai i10 2020 incorporates a new bold grille design that includes circular fog lights at each corner. There are also angular air intakes at the ends of the bumper and new sharp optical groups.

“The new Hyundai i10 has a young and dynamic design that stands out in the segment A. Its wide front grille expresses a sporty character and incorporates daytime running lights. Thus continuing this characteristic of the i10’s heritage,” Hyundai described in a press release.

Hyundai i10 2020, the urban is modernized

The South Korean brand has confirmed that the new Hyundai i10 will load with advanced technologies. Such as Front Collision Prevention Assistance with a front radar sensor, Driver Attention Warning, and Serial Lane Maintenance Assistance System. The new urban car will also come with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless charging of smartphones, and a rearview camera.

The renewed Hyundai i10, in all likelihood, will be sold exclusively with a range of three and four-cylinder engines. One of which could be the 1.0 turbocharged T-GDI 1.0 with three hp 100 hp of the Hyundai i30 but could also be available in another version with 120 hp as in the new A-SUV, the atmospheric 1.2-liter and 83 hp and a 1.5-liter diesel CRDi and 90 hp, with  5-speed manual gearbox in gasoline and 6 relations in diesel or an optional CVT .

Hyundai i10

The new Hyundai i10 l will be in the second half of 2020 and is also wider, longer and lower, betting on a less vertical format than the current model. While the rear remains covered, it is only possible to see part of 5202 led headlight bulbs, the new model segment A Hyundai bet more natural style with a waistline. And it forms the gates completely new, like the tailgate with some light clusters equipped with LED technology. A set of the rear that follows the older brother’s style canon, the Hyundai i20.

The new Hyundai i10 will feature a modern interior, based on the Hyundai Venue SUV. It gives more prominence to the center console with a single touch screen and an info-entertainment system with the “Blue Link” platform.

New Hyundai Ioniq Arrived at the American Market With Its New Upgrade

Hyundai Ioniq

Hyundai begins in America the commercialization of the new Ioniq, which will be offered in a hybrid, plug-in and fully electric hybrid version.

The Hyundai Ioniq reached the different markets in 2016. That already seems far away, offered in a hybrid version, plug-in hybrid, and fully electric. The versatile ecological vehicle of the South Korean brand has managed to put more than 60,000 units on the roads. Now it’s time to renew, with new technology and a renewed aesthetic, which we can now enjoy in the American market.

The aesthetic changes of the new Hyundai Ioniq focus mainly on its front, and we can see a new grille. It will be closed for the electric version presenting a new specific design pattern. Something has also served to modify the bumper and give it a more refined air. A silver molding and details have been included in the area of ​​the daytime running lights located on the sides. The LED front optical group also offers a new look, as does the LED rear group along with the anthracite-colored moldings that have been added to the bumper.

Hyundai Ioniq
Hyundai offered the Ioniq with a palette of five colors. Now add four new colors called Fluidic Metal, Electric Shadow, Liquid Sand, and Typhoon Silver. Besides, it should also be said that, for plug-in and fully electric hybrid versions, they will be available with 16-inch wheels that receive a new design.

In the interior, there are also changes in several sections, starting with the introduction of a new 10.25-inch touch screen for the infotainment and navigation system. That will be offered as an option, although as standard, it will already have a screen of 7 inches that has been improved. In addition, to give a more elegant touch, Hyundai has installed new Ioniq ambient lighting in blue for the bottom of the dashboard both on the passenger side and the center console.

As with the color of the body, Hyundai has also paid attention to the upholstery of the Ioniq seats. It will be offered as standard in Fossil Gray fabric, but optionally we can opt for the leather upholstery that will be offered in four different colors. Some of them exclusive to the chosen model: Fossil Gray, Shale Gray, Red Umber (only for the hybrid and plug-in hybrid), and Electric Shadow (only for the electric version).

Hyundai Ioniq
To all this, we must add the latest developments in systems and driving aids. Some of them included as standard the Hyundai SmartSense package as a frontal collision assistant with the detection of pedestrians. And cyclists, warning of driver fatigue, assistant of lane maintenance and long hid lights assistant. Optionally we will also have several systems available that finish is completing the series offer.

But as we had previously mentioned, the most important change may be found in the electric version of the Ioniq. But not precisely in its 136 hp and 295 Nm electric motor, but in its battery that now becomes 38.3 kWh, which translates into 36% more capacity and autonomy that increases to 311 km. Its standard built-in charger now becomes 7.2 kW for Type 2 AC charging, which means that in a 100 kW fast-charging station we can recharge up to 80% of the battery capacity in 54 minutes.

On the other hand, both in the hybrid and plug-in hybrid version, we will find a 1,600 CC gasoline engine that delivers 105 hp. It associated with an electric motor with 43.5 hp power, which translates into a combined power of 141 HP and a torque of 265 m.N, associated with a sports transmission with a double-clutch and six gears.

As I said, the three versions of the Hyundai Ioniq are already available for the American market. With a price starting at 22,845 dollars for the hybrid version, from 30,025 dollars for the plug-in hybrid version and from 34,375 dollars for the full version power.

New Hyundai Venue SUV Will Expands Its SUV Family


The Hyundai Venue, the new compact SUV of the Korean brand, will finally jump over the puddle and become a global model to reach more markets.

It seems incredible that there is still some gap to explode within the SUV segment. But it looks even more when we see how brands do not cease to release new models. An example of this is in Hyundai, where the Korean brand will expand its offer with the new Venue, a compact-sized SUV that will fall below the Kona within the brand’s scale.


Under the urban vibes concept comes the new Hyundai Venue, a model that will target the younger audience. It not only for aesthetics but also for being a vehicle. That created to move in the city, like a fish in the water, although it will not detract the ability to get out. The Hyundai Venue had as its primary objective the USA market. But the brand seems to be clear that this model will succeed in other markets, hence through a spectacular video, they show it and announce it as a global model.

In the video, the Hyundai Venue arrives by air inside a Lockheed C-130 Hercules heading to the Inyokern airport in California. While the rest of the Hyundai SUV range approaches by land, being able to see the Kona, NEXO, Tucson, Santa Fe, and Palisade together. Once on the ground, everyone receives him, and they step aside until they reach the largest of the family. The Palisade seems to challenge him before letting him be part of it and then all together accompany him on his arrival in the city.

As in the video, once the Hyundai Venue arrives in our cities and roads, we will find an SUV of small measures, with 4,030 mm in length, 1,770 mm in width, and 1,560 mm in height. That is not far from the attractive design; we could already see in his sketches. Precisely this will be its great asset, an elegant and youthful design capable of attracting the youngest audience. It will also have an excellent capacity for customization so that each client can give their personal touch.


The interior in two shades will be simple, perhaps with too much abuse of hard plastics. But with a clean design, chair in the center console by a touch screen from which we will operate the infotainment system and other functions. In the instrument cluster, we will have another color TFT screen that will show the most critical information to the driver. With capacity for five people, you will have to see with more data in your hand, as will be your comfort. The trunk with 306 liters capacity will fulfill its function.

At the moment, we do not know which mechanics Hyundai has chosen for the Venue in America. We will have to wait a little longer to know them, although everything indicates that the gasoline engines will be the protagonists. What you do know is that the Hyundai Venue will arrive in these next months of 2019 to the different markets.

The Completely Autonomous Hyundai Sonata 2020 is in Driving Tested

Hyundai Sonata

Last March, Hyundai signed a memorandum of understanding with the Russian technology company Yandex to develop autonomous cars of Level 4 and Level 5 jointly. These levels of autonomous driving are the most advanced since they would not have human intervention. The two companies immediately set to work, as Yandex released a video of a self-diagnostic test of the Hyundai Sonata 2020 prototype in its outdoor laboratory.

The initial objective of the collaboration was to build an autonomous prototype based on a Hyundai or Kia model, and as you can see, that has achieved.

Hyundai Sonata

According to Yandex, the new Hyundai Sonata 2020  chosen because its platform allows easy integration of autonomous driving technology and hardware with minimal modifications. The Russian team received the first unit of the Hyundai Sonata at the end of May 2019 and began working on the prototype with Hyundai Mobis engineers.

Initial tests have been carried out on the closed test grounds of Yandex, where the autonomous Sonata has been driving 24/7 in a fully autonomous mode. Currently, the Hyundai Sonata autonomous driving tested in various weather conditions and simulated traffic situations with other autonomous driving cars on track.

Hyundai Sonata autonomous, a work of Yandex

The plan is to start testing the vehicle on the streets of NewYork, “shortly.” The Hyundai Sonata 2020 will be part of the Yandex autonomous fleet, which is expected to reach 100 vehicles by the end of the year. Thanks to the partnership with Hyundai Mobis, more autonomous models of Hyundai and Kia will join the fleet in the future.

“Our collaboration with Hyundai Mobis is an important element of our expansion strategy, and the new Hyundai Sonata is just the beginning,” Yandex said. Through the collaboration with Hyundai Mobis and other automotive players, the company’s long-term goal is to build “an autonomous out-of-the-box driving solution for a wide variety of automotive platforms.”

That is more or less what Waymo is doing with autonomous driving, and it is noteworthy that Yandex is the «Google of Russia.» The program of autonomous cars of the American company began in 2017. To create genuinely autonomous cars of Level 5; that is, vehicles that do not require driver intervention in any driving scenario ». Now, in its third year, the autonomous driving team is approaching the achievement of the objective. «In August, the Robo taxi service successfully launched, we expanded the tests to Israel and demonstrated one of our driverless cars on public roads during CES 2019. As we move forward in our journey towards the development of cars with advanced autonomous driving, we are pleased to announce the first automotive collaboration.

In addition to the credibility increase offered by the agreement with Hyundai Mobis, Yandex entered the dispute with leaders in the field. Therefore, those looking for a decent offer (Uber and Apple) may now be more willing to look beyond Yandex’s Russian roots. Yandex autonomous driving has arrived.
