A new four-wheeled robot designed to carry anything from parcels and drinks to babies and health monitors, has been developed by Hyundai.
The Mobile Eccentric Droid (MobED) robot has a low and flat body that is perfect for 'stability and high manoeuvrability' tasks, according to Hyundai.
It will be officially unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022 in January, where it will be shown undertaking tasks in complex and challenging environments.
In a promotional video for the device, it can be seen carrying a baby and crossing a hill while loaded with a pyramid of glasses filled with champagne.
MobED is 26 inches long, weighs 110lb and would be a useful 'mobility device for hte elderly or disabled,' Hyundai explained.
No pricing details have been released for the device, and Hyundai is yet to say when it will be commercially available.
It has been designed with a flat, rectangular body to allow for multiple uses, and rides on four large wheels with an independent suspension.
This enables 'optimal body posture and stable movement even on inclined and uneven roads,' Hyundai engineers explained.
It means the platform can move through even the most complicated urban environments by adjusting the wheelbase and steering angles more freely.
