In your own words, what is Vision URBANETIC?
Vision URBANETIC is not just autonomous but also electric. Its interchangeable bodies represent an innovative hardware solution and it is fully connected. Over and above that, it is the ideal embodiment of mobility on demand.
What does it do for the city of the future?
Vision URBANETIC is a completely new mobility concept for the smart city where widespread fully automated driverless transport will exist or where purely autonomous zones will be defined. Thanks to its intelligent concept and the interchangeable modules for people moving and goods transportation, we will take a huge amount of pressure off city centres.
How will the exciting new concept work?
Vision URBANETIC is part of a holistic ecosystem. The system analyses the transport needs of people and goods and compiles a highly flexible, needs-based fleet. During the daytime rush hours, Vision URBANETIC transports mainly people then switches to city-centre goods transportation at night. Plus, it can serve as a mobile base for last-mile delivery drones or self-driving robots.
What are some of the potential benefits?
The broad diversity of usage options means all sorts of different companies could share a vehicle or even a whole fleet, such as shuttle services and public services or couriers and package logistics companies. This will relieve cities and ultimately improve the quality of life in urban areas. It also offers added value for our customers. Operating costs fall and opportunities for new services emerge, such as precision-timed deliveries and maximum flexibility for courier, express and package services.
