Daimler has launched its new Smart Vision Fortwo concept vehicle at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week. It’s a self-driving, electric Smart car concept.
What we personally like the most about this newest technology is of course, you guessed it, the OLED screen that is used in the front panel. This shows us again how versatile and up-to-date, OLED is.
A black panel grille on the front of the vehicle can be personalized so that the person who requested the vehicle knows it’s his or her ride. The grill can also display whether or not the vehicle is occupied.
The front radiator grill can also be used to communicate with pedestrians.
There’s are also projection surfaces on the side of the car where personalized information can also be displayed.
The company envisions the vehicle, dubbed the Smart Vision EQ Fortwo, being used for car sharing in cities. People would be able to request an autonomous car pick via their smartphone and the vehicle would take them to their desired location. The concept vehicle is aimed at urban environments and is meant to be used basically as a robot taxi.
“The smart vision EQ fortwo is our vision of future urban mobility; it is the most radical car sharing concept car of all: fully autonomous, with maximum communication capabilities, friendly, comprehensively personalizable and, of course, electric,” CEO Annette Winkler
