Self-driving Mercedes Vision Tokyo Concept for future generation

October 29, 2015, 11:07 AM IST by CarWale Team
Self-driving Mercedes Vision Tokyo Concept for future generation

A lounge, automotive companion and a respite that shields its passengers from the mayhem of megacity living. Mercedes Vision Tokyo concept is all of this, apart from being a green self-driving hybrid car for the future.

The Vision Tokyo concept is a neon lit minivan for the generation Zers, born after 1995. It has a traditional automobile form, but the design itself is as radical as any concept that we have seen in recent times. The windshield extends on to the side and the glasses there are painted silver to provide privacy to the passengers. The front grille lights up and shows the sound patterns of the music playing inside, while the rear has many more LEDs to cover the oval window.

If the exterior seems outrageous, wait till you see the inside. Designed to be a lounge that accommodates five, the concept can project holographic 3D imagery, maps and videos to entertain its passengers. Also in case of emergency, there a jump seat that can swivel to the driving position for manual override. As unnerving as it sounds, the predictive engine and deep machine learning familiarises with each passing trip to behave as per their likes and preferences, shielding them from the hustle bustle outside.

Mercedes Vision Tokyo concept uses a hydrogen fuel cell and rechargeable batteries to power the electric motor. The vehicle is capable of travelling 980km with 190km coming from the batteries while the rest 490Km from the hydrogen fuel cells

The Vision Tokyo concept is not meant for production, it is more of an insight into the future possibilities. Ones that seem to be rather exciting for even those not interested in automotive wizardry.
