The future is autonomous and sustainable, this is what Layer Design believes. That’s why this design company has come up with PAL, a concept prototype for future modular personal transport system that uses AI and machine learning to provide flexible and convenient “last mile” travel. This intelligent transport system has been designed for NIO, a Chinese electric vehicle company.
PAL by Layer Design is a scooter concept with various accessories such as basket, bag, shopping cart, can be affixed to the front area to cater user’s lifestyle and changing needs. There’s a companion app also designed by LAYER that connect a wireless Bluetooth earpiece to NIO’s NOMI system. This transport system is not just another concept scooter, it is equipped with machine learning software to become accustomed to a user’s routes over time then eventually become autonomous. It’s simple yet express lifestyle values and sensibilities, it doesn’t use overly tech-driven language. This graphene-coated carbon fiber vehicle creates harmony between the way people think about home and transport.
