Mercedes-Benz has presented the pilotless transforming car


The Mercedes-Benz Vans company has submitted the "revolutionary concept of mobility" under the name Vision URBANETIC intended for transportation of people or freights in the cities, the airports or at the industrial enterprises. The presentation of a prototype has taken place within the special event of brand in Copenhagen.

According to authors, Vision URBANETIC will allow to reduce traffic flows and to improve quality of life in the cities due to decrease in quantity of transport on streets. He represents the autonomous electric mobile platform on which depending on the sphere of use various modules can be installed. As envisioned by developers, Vision URBANETIC has to become a part of an ecosystem which will adapt to constantly changing transport tasks. The computing AI platform with a possibility of self-training in real time analyzes traffic, plans deliveries of goods and is capable to react to the current transport needs of the city including to find potential passengers, defining places of big congestions of people. The lack of a binding to rigid routes or the fixed schedules will allow system to react to needs of the city flexibly.

the Dimensional length of a concept - 5.14 m, the cargo platform - 3.7 m. The passenger module accomodates up to 12 passengers, the volume of cargo - 10 cubic meters. The last can be also equipped with the system of automatic sorting and delivery of goods for delivery of "the last mile". It is possible to replace modules manually or automatically, in the latter case it will take several minutes. According to in the company, except for time of accumulator charging and electric equipment, each car can be used round the clock 365 days in a year.

the Prototype is set in motion by the electric motors eating from the block of rechargeable batteries. The concept is equipped with several cameras and sensors. On his forward part the large-format LED panel to which information on "intentions" of the UAV is output is installed. Creating effect of "a digital shadow", she projects it on a body sidewall, notifying pedestrians and cyclists that the UAV sees them. Control of Vision URBANETIC is exercised of the operator remotely.
