Emergent Neighborhood Transport
Combining contemporary technology with a focus on low cost and reliability, this neighborhood transport vehicle study for developing countries features a high and wide wheel base and wide tires to ensure stable handling especially for bad road conditions with mud, stones and potholes. Powered by an electric battery on a quad-bike undercarriage, it is meant for neighborhood people transport and delivery services. A sandwich frame with integrated OLED lights reduces weight. A magnetic holder and connector safely attaches a smartphone so that it can act as a dashboard. The smartphone is connected to internal engine sensors and helps in wayfinding.
