VITREOUS Framework for Self-Driven Cars with Flexible Seating Arrangements

Trending autonomous car concepts and projects have revealed a possible future of self-driven cars. This radical idea of a ‘driver-less’ car brings new ways of ‘seeing’ and ‘using’ a car, challenging current modes of personal transportation where proportion, interior, controls and seating arrangements are usually set in place and beyond the user’s decision. The prospect also highlights the shifting role of driver to passenger as the need for the car to be under constant control diminishes.

Designed as a framework for moving space beyond existing dogma, VITREOUS aspires a bold re-thinking of practicality and experience through flexible operatives, material hypothesis and technology, developed a context where personal mobility can be driven or go driver-less. The primary focus of this project is the flexibility of its interior. Beyond existing car design that determines the general placement of objects on the inside of the car due to considerations of safety and driving control, VITREOUS, as a car of self-driven capability, offers flexibility by means of moving and collapsing seats. This design deliberation creates a transformable space that can be varied for different purposes.

2030 Rolls Royce Eidolon Concept Car with Omni Wheel Technology for Better Maneuverability

Futuristic 2030 Rolls Royce Eidolon concept car features unique seating layout to demonstrate how users can drive and interact within the vehicle, thanks to autonomous technology equipped in the car. It’s a design study that was inspired by the luxury brand as most wealthy people love to be seen in large luxury cars even though they have to face city maneuverability issues. This concept car solves the issues with omni wheel technology, it creases its dimensions without compromising its maneuverability.

Luxury cars usually feature long body which might cause problems when driving in the city. By applying advanced omni wheel technology, the wheelbase no longer dictates the maneuverability of a car, instead, now the car length determines city friendliness of the car. Turning radius of a standard sedan is around 11m, but with this technology, the radius becomes 0, even 6-meter long vehicle equipped with omni wheel would be more maneuverable compared to normal c-segment sedan.

Smart : An Electric Car Featuring Almost Everything That Traditional Electric Cars Usually Miss

To make the title realistic, I would like to start with speed that most electric cars usually are deficient in. Smart electric car concept can go 0 to 60 km/h in just 5.5 seconds which gets up to 120 km/h through its powerful 30kW magneto-electric motor. Moreover, the boost function can give an additional 5kW of power with a simple press in the boost button for more speed. A conventional 220 volt socket can charge the car up to 80 percent in just 45 minutes and a fully charged battery ensures 125 kilometers of continuous drive. Additionally, the wind deflector features photovoltaic cells to lengthen the battery life.
