Piaggio P.A.M. (Personal Advance Mobility) concept vehicle was Simone Madella’s thesis. This project was realized thanks to the participation of Piaggio design center. This vehicle has been designed to meet Italian cities needs of safety, innovation, traffic and style. It targets males and females between 20-40 years old. You can read in designer’s own words about this project below.
At first, safety I decided to put 2 rear wheels to increase traction and grip, without affecting the maneuverability and precision of the vehicle. Using the egg structure I could create something like safety cell (similar to Smart For Two), equipped with 3 airbags to the both of driver’s sides. Thanks to arch structure you can get in the vehicle almost straight, with the option to calibrate seat height. Technology, in this vehicle is used for 3 purposes: help the driver, have appeal for young people and make it almost self-sufficient.
The windshield that extend itself above the driver’s head is composed by a material called “Sun Glass”, which produce electricity when exposed to UV light. Navigation data, maps and other info are projected to the wide glass.
It’s also possible listen music, view images and videos on the windshield, but only if vehicle is not moving. Another device capable to providing electrical power to the battery are the “wind belt” located behind the front wheel, instead of the radiator. They are belts that produce electricity if moved by the wind.

Piaggio P.A.M.’s platform is composed by “piezoelectric material, that is nowadays used in the Pc mouse. The batteries are removable, so as to give to everyone the possibility to recharge itself and everywhere.
Stylistically PAM tries to recall Piaggio language, maintaining the distinctive signs and colors. Conceptually it tries to retrace the steps made by Vespa, including the possibility of using it for 12 months. You can ride without helmet, and thanks to the many pockets and straps you can carry snowboards, skis, briefcases and more.
Being equipped with numerous devices that use natural resources to feed it, PAM even if is stationary, it can contribute to the family’s home electricity production.
