Hyundai’s most recent innovation is an e-Corner System, which allows the wheels to pivot 90 degrees. This innovative innovation will enable the car to park perpendicularly and rotate in position. Furthermore, the wheels may drive diagonally at a 45-degree angle, allowing for high-speed, fast direction changes. A little more information regarding the dynamic capabilities of the e-Corner modular steering. And propulsion system for EVs has just been made public by Hyundai Mobis, an affiliate technology provider of Hyundai.

Simply put, it could significantly alter how easily driven or not, electrified urban vehicles can maneuver. The system displayed on an Ioniq 5 earlier this year helped the business attract attention. It may be possible to create a new kind of skateboard platform with even more packaging flexibility. The system can rotate each wheel up to 90 degrees individually or separately.

The company is currently testing the technology

On its route to mass producing the system as early as 2025, the company is currently testing the technology on public highways close to its South Korean testing facility. And other case studies demonstrate how this goes much beyond the GMC Hummer EV’s CrabWalk’s relative gimmickry.

It now displays the e-Corner system moving laterally, continuing earlier company presentations. All four wheels are spun 90 degrees, thus the car is moving side to side. A “zero turn,” which rotated the car in a very small space by pivoting the front and rear wheels in opposite directions, was also displayed.

It pivots all four wheels at 45 degrees in the same direction, a process known as “diagonal driving.” There is also a “pivot turn,” which enables the driver to position the wheels such that the vehicle will go in a circle around any chosen point as the center.

Hyundai’s Mobis clarifies the function of an in-wheel motor with this release of more information. The business had not before explained or mentioned that. Additionally, the business demonstrates the integration of steer-by-wire and brake-by-wire systems in another view, with an angled damper strut acting as part of the entire vehicle suspension.
