Digitalization does not stop even at the automotive sector. Vehicles are able to communicate with each other and with traffic systems, making mobility smarter than ever. For cities, this opens up completely new possibilities with intelligent traffic control becoming increasingly simple. But to do so, it is important to know the requirements. Only in this way can vehicles and traffic be coordinated. The task in this workspace was to find out about these requirements and develop concepts for them.
In this workspace, it was important to look at the topic from two perspectives: that of daily commuters and that of travellers. In both cases, the participants were particularly interested in futuristic concepts. Vehicles should be fully connected and completely integrated into daily life. Exciting ideas included drone delivery of parcels directly into the vehicle via the panorama roof, digital pets, the possibility of networking while driving, and a social system to penalize drivers who do not obey traffic rules.
