Audi Urban Future Initiative
Autonomous vehicles will characterize Zurich's cityscape in 2025. As a supplement to the public transport vehicles are available, which can be used without loss of comfort analogous to private cars. A route is selected via smartphone, the car drives to the desired time and searches for the way to the destination. If additional passengers are planning a similar route, the system combines the routes to achieve optimal ecological utilization. To avoid overloading the network, the system prevents and detects when and where vehicles are needed. For longer distances a combination with existing public transport is suggested. This novel move is comparable to taxi rides. The time can be used as in a train, bus or tram without having to concentrate on the road. An onboard entertainment system entertains the passengers during the journey and informs them about the route. On the four available seats can be ensured by swinging away full intimacy.
