Synbione / Public Transportation


Synbione is a concept to combine futuristic personal mobility vehicles called ZOID with VECTRA a class of autonomous public transportation vehicles. Through this combination, the core issues of traffic congestion due to increased vehicle density and fatal road accidents could be solved. Most importantly, the overall energy consumption of the urban transportation system could be optimized to a great extent. Synbione will also bring virtual socialization into the real time experience in public transportation and they would enjoy hassle free daily commuting by just relaxing and making productive use of their travel time.
