The mobility of the future according to the Daimler group: electric car sharing with intelligent Autonomous Guide, we will see you in Frankfurt
Definitely futuristic the smart stand at the Frankfurt 2017 show, where we’ll see the new smart Vision EQ Fortwo Concept. With this prototype, the Mercedes Property Builder fully represents its vision of the future of mobility. The two-seater concept is electrically propelled and characterized by a fully autonomous level 5 driving system: Passengers can only enter the destination. The Daimler group imagines cars destined for car sharing in the metropolis of 2030.
Vision EQ Fortwo Concept is a Smart in all respects, starting with the design. First of all, however, it is the first city car of the range EQ, brand with which will be identified all the electric cars and hybrid plug-in of the Daimler group.
As you can notice from the photos, the cockpit is essential. There is a comfortable two seater bench covered in leather, while the dashboard is almost totally occupied by a high-resolution screen from which you can set the destination to reach. Once this is done, you can use it fully as an infotainment system: Surf the Web, share on social, connect your smartphone and more.
This is the concept of the German House on the mobility of the future in the big cities. The occupants of the cars will not have to worry about anything in the shifts, so they can optimize the downtime by sending mails of work or even participating in video-conferences.
According to the vision of Daimler, in about ten years the use of car sharing will be much wider than the current level. Smart Vision EQ Fortwo Concept will enable you to increase efficiency, allowing you to share your journey between two people with different destinations thanks to the Advanced Autonomous Guide system with Intelligent Navigator. The car will also be able to move continuously, going to “pick up” the next customers.
Size from FORTWO
In Terms of overall dimensions, the Vision EQ is the same size as the last generation of the Fortwo, although the shape of the bodywork is much more rounded thanks to the new Tridion safety cell. The latter has been specially redesigned to increase the glazed surfaces as much as possible. Windshield, roof and rear window are made in a single element that gives remarkable airyness to the comfortable cockpit. Practice the vertical opening of the doors, which makes it easy to access and exit the car even to people with motor problems.
Very original The front, characterized by the 44-inch panel that can bring back several useful messages to pedestrians and other road users. The functions of the front optical units are carried out by two LED displays, while the rear lights also carry information on the traffic and the status of the battery charge.
As already anticipated little higher, in the cockpit the only commands we see them grouped in the 24-inch touch screen placed horizontally on the dashboard.
The Smart Vision EQ Fortwo Concept is driven by an electric motor, powered by the 30 kWh Lithium-ion battery pack. The charge is carried out autonomously by the same car, using wireless charging stations. It will be the same artificial intelligence of the car to direct it to a charging point when the battery is about to run out.
Given the concentrated technology on board, it could not miss the V2G that allows you to share more energy directly into the electricity grid.
