Designed by Gabriel Tam, this bus is ideal for mobility in the future crowded cities. Designed especially for the London to make it car free except induction powered fleet and cycles, this bus is autonomously driven by the modular induction propulsion system.
The ELA2010 is an electro bionic bus concept that has been designed as a combination of nature and technology. The shape of insect eyes, feet and wings has been implemented on the 8 separated wheels including individual in-wheel electric engine. The concept comprises a roof-top solar panel that can generate secondary energy to empower the wheels and the weird looking back part has no functionality expect giving the concept a more unique look. When the two side doors open, this futuristic bus takes an appearance of a flying butterfly.
The ARC personal rapid transit system concept from designer Zack Stephanchick aims to provide easy, quick and hassle-free transport for residents of urban areas. The autonomous vehicle moves on a network of rails, which in a way also makes it compliant with the current web of tracks and trains.

Even the pedestrian traffic is on the increase, as people are getting wearier of traveling in private transport given the rising fuel costs. The near future foresees or rather demands radical changes in the transport sector that will not only offer environmentally friendly vehicles but also offer convenient commute. The Publi Bus is a concept by Niels Grubak Iversen that is meant for rural areas. It is a driverless concept and the speeds never exceed a walkers pace. Due to its low speeds commuters will be able to alight or climb in at any time they wish, without the bus stopping. I am assuming that a premeditated bus-route will be fed into the vehicles controls and dedicated lanes will be provided. I like that spaciousness of the bus that will be able to fit in quite a lot of people.
