iF concept design award 2008

iF concept design award 2008

The tram can transport about 200 passengers, but on a smaller size area than standard trams, hence less traffic congestion occurs. Fewer seats on the first floor create a spacious and accessible area for wheelchairs, prams or bulky luggage. Doors on the second floor enable direct access to shopping malls and faster entering/exiting. The autonomous driving system improves safety and efficiency. Radar and sensors support an optimized speed and ensure a smooth, comfortable ride. One of the main targets was to improve the travel experience in order to encourage people to use a public transportation that is more environmental-friendly.
