BIG CITY, SMALL RIDE
MOBILITY IN THE URBAN HABITAT @ VICIS 2018The "century of the automobile" is history. The excessive use of fossil fuels destroys our planet, and the day they’ll finally run out is in sight. At the same time our need for mobility is steadily increasing, as is the human desire for efficiency and comfort. This, coupled with the possibilities of rapidly advancing technological development, constantly leads to new approaches for the next generation design of individual transport.
Markus Leszczyk introduces URBAN BUDDY, a concept which, in addition to electrically powered, autonomous driving, highlights another aspect - the perception and embedding of vehicles as part of the urban living space. With the support of Volkswagen the concept for an individually configurable small car was created, which not only requires as little space as possible during its standstill, but also adapts to its direct environment and even offers opportunities for local use.
