A joint project between students of Technical University of Munich (TUM, Germany) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU, Singapore) in collaboration with the BMW Group.
This is a conceptual vehicle involving individual mobility for the year 2030. We seeked to develop a vehicle which will be small, light-weight and controlled wirelessly via a gamepad– making driving a much more comfortable and enjoyable experience in what the group think would be a stressful and fast-paced society set in the year 2030.
The vehicle is called 'The Lounger' which allows a driver to enjoy the comfort as if one is lying on a lounge chair and it enables one to drive wirelessly. The possibilities are truly endless with such technology where one can retrieve the vehicle from a distance, assist-driving similarly configured vehicles, program safety features in conjunction with the traffic system etc –this is just the scratching the tip of the ice-berg!
The Lounger also boasts 4-wheel drive steering, enabling the vehicle to maneuver through tight spaces and weave through traffic. As well as a cargo compartment, capable of storing everyday items such as groceries, bags and assorted equipment. It is designed to minimal, merging itself with the frame when not in use, hence creating a seamless look over all.
