Futuristic cars | EO car from DFKI
The most recent 2012 CeBIT tech fair , held in Hannover , Germany , the world’s biggest , showcased some very interesting futuristic cars . There is this car that simply amazes you with its features , ideas and concepts from DFKI . Its called the EO . This is a photograph of these futuristic cars and their amazing features
Futuristic cars | Features of the EO car
- 100% battery/electric powered
- gull-wing doors . Easy to get out of car when parked in a small parking area
- it can lengthen and shorten itself. Great for parking if you have a really tight space . Just shorten it !!
- rotate its wheels by 90 degrees to allow easy parking .
The EO car has this ability to link and hooked up to one another , forming a chain , like a train . It allows coupling while in motion .
Why would you want the car to be hooked up in chains ? Well , the idea is that if you have a car that is low in battery (by the way , these cars are electric powered) , the chain will allow the low battery powered cars to be recharged . Basically , power sharing . You can watch the video of the EO here .
Futuristic Cars | Beyond 50 years
Imagine how cars will be like in 2060 . Most cars by then should be electric powered . There will be more human and machine interactions . There is no need for a steering wheel and cars not only interact with the “drivers or owners” but on the environment as well , such as other vehicles through all types of sensors .
Car sensors can judge the owners emotion and change colours or its shape . Cars will be able to interact with surrounding vehicles and building automatically . Cars will be without steering wheels and speed automatically adjusted with traffic routes defined with minimum human intervention, therefore reducing tragic accidents .
Most of the technologies are already available today . Need to give time for the technology to mature , and cost effective to be implemented on the vehicles . I am sure that day will come and soon ….
