This technology is expected to be equipped in robo-taxis co-developed by Hyundai Motor Group and Yandex, Russia’s largest search engine. The two companies joined hands to develop self-driving car platform and revealed its Sonata prototype in July. They plan to unleash their robo-taxis in Russia by 2020 and are currently testing 100 development vehicles for any flaws.
