LIKE A ROBOT UBER
THE Daimler Group launched the smart vision EQ fortwo concept vehicle to show how autonomous driving could make future car sharing even more convenient, simple and economically efficient.
The smart vision EQ has no steering wheel or pedals, but it does not need them. Thanks to swarm intelligence and autonomous driving, the smart vision EQ is the kind of car that will fetch its passengers at their chosen location — like a robot Uber.
The swarm intelligence programming comes with predictability of demand, which will increase the chance of the smart being nearby when needed.
The EQ was one of over 10 new electric cars shown at the 2017 Frankfurt International Motor Show. All are set to go into series production at Mercedes-Benz Cars by 2022.
The smart vision EQ has a cabin devoid of a steering wheel or pedals.
