The Wave / future urban transportation

The Wave
The Wave

The Wave is designed for future urban transportation. With the new technology of unlimited energy, fast calculation speed, and 5g system, people will only need an auto-ride-share car instead of a private car. The only thing you need to do is to wave to it. Privacy is highly considered. Four seats are divided with a transparent board, each seat can rotate freely so people can choose to communicate with other passengers or not, and the seat will self-disinfect each time. Furthermore, the auto-driving frees hands, all driving information are shown on the screen so there is no doubt and distrust between humans and auto-car.
