Hyundai company designed a vehicle which can roll along on extended legs or retract them to be driven like a car.
These extended legs can help vehicle to clime or crawl while keeping the passenger compartment level, according to company they are working on this project since three years.

“This design is uniquely capable of both mammalian and reptilian walking gaits, allowing it to move in any direction,” Hyundai said in a release.

“This technology goes well beyond emergency situations – people living with disabilities could hail an autonomous Hyundai Elevate that could walk up to their front door, level itself, and allow their wheelchair to roll right in,” Suh said.
