FIAKER 2.0 Advanced Carriage is the answer to the challenge of designing contemporary and ecological concept transportation that offers the typical feeling of a coach tour. This concept carriage combines the best of both world, traditional value with modern technology. Traditional coach tours are a big business in many cities around the world, thanks to tourists, or other special events such as birthdays and marriages. Horse-draw carriage tours have been long targeted by government because the cities have to deal with the amount of manure produced by those horses. It creates urban street pollution, during wet weather, the streets can turn into rivers of muck while during dry weather, the manure turns to dust, choking pedestrians and coating buildings.
Fiaker 2.0 Advanced Carriage is hoped to address 2 main topics here, instead of stopping the tours, why not creating an environmentally friendly transportation that still carries the traditional characteristic of horse-drawn carriage. This concept carriage is the solution of street pollution produced by coach tours in busy city streets, it catches horse manure as you can see from the images below.
