Its modular system will make it possible to transform Citybot into several modifications - from a taxi to a garbage truck.
German company EDAG introduced Citybot, their new modular vehicle, at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The company engineers claim that their development will solve the problem of traffic jams, as these cars will be united into a single network that will regulate traffic using common logistical workflows. The autopilot functionality will get rid of the human factor, which often plays a decisive role in creating traffic jams.
One of the main benefits of Citybot is that by changing the body of the car, you can create several vehicle modifications that can replace taxis, cargo carriers and even service vehicles like garbage trucks.
Citybot can independently perform various actions using special robotic arms, and it also has a built-in voice assistant. The automobile communicates using a special exterior module with cameras and a speech simulator.
The core of the electric vehicle is a four-wheeled rig connected to a two-wheeled service module. The other features of the car are built into its interchangeable bodies.
Experts at EDAG believe that on average, private vehicles are not used during 23 hours each day, and the Citybot vehicle fleet will replace up to 80% of all cars on the road. The versatility of these vehicles will make them operational during the entire day, so they can be used to perform tasks at the most convenient time.
