Navis concept car for next-gen urban environment
The Navis car is another concept among many other urban transportation solutions trying to make space in the next-gen environment. Its zero emission electric engine and compact size make it ideal for urban streets. The design is such that it doesn’t require extra space for motors. It incorporates a FreeMotion wheel system, whereby the wheels also work as electric motors. Here the outer section of the wheel rotates and the center section stays fixed. An SCS (Scent Concentration System) located in the front and rear provides you complete advantage of airflow and scent detection. Further, scent detection surfacing is used to navigate and traverse along the already acquainted routes.
The surface is made up of semi-porous electrostatically sensitive metal-matix composite. Two additional layers of solid metal ensure protection against damage. An ultra-compact lithium-ion battery placed in the front of car will store energy. Two super-formed high tensile spring steel plates are wrapped in carbon fiber that makes the ride smoother. The main structure is separated from suspension plates by oil-filled rubber bladders. The reciprocal seating arrangement makes interaction between the driver and the passenger more convenient. The concept sounds appealing, but it will be hard to comment on its fate in the absence of detailed specification.
