At CES 2017, Cason Grover, Sr. Group Manager, Vehicle Technology Planning from Hyundai Motor America explains the vision and range sensors in Hyundai’s Autonomous Ioniq. The vehicle has one forward facing long range radar and three LiDAR units at the front and four cameras mounted inside at the top of windshield. Radar units at the rear corners of the vehicle provide blind spot detection. Designers were able to embed all the sensors in the vehicle’ normal outline and avoid the usual roof-installed unit seen on prototype test vehicles.
