Volvo reveals 360c fully autonomous concept; an alternative to short distance flights

Volvo reveals 360c fully autonomous concept; an alternative to short distance flights

- 360c is a fully autonomous, fully electric car without a human driver

- It is a potentially lucrative competitor to short-haul air travel

Autonomous technology is breaking new grounds with manufacturers trying to reinvent the wheel. Volvo has just revealed its 360c fully autonomous concept. With the 360c Volvo is targeting people who are into short distance air travel by offering your very own first-class private cabin that picks you up at home and takes you from door to door. 

The basis of the 360c is a fully autonomous, fully electric car without a human driver. The concept capitalises on the freedom in design afforded by the absence of a steering wheel and a combustion engine, providing the ability to reimagine the traditional placement of passengers in rows of two or three. The 360c presents four potential uses of autonomous driving vehicles – a sleeping environment, mobile office, living room and entertainment space, which all reimagine the way people travel. It also introduces a proposal for a global standard in how autonomous vehicles can safely communicate with all other road users.

The 360c represents a potentially lucrative competitor to short-haul air travel, a multi-billion dollar industry comprising airlines, aircraft makers and other service providers. Especially shorter routes where the distance between origin and destination is around 300 kilometres are prime candidates for disruption by an alternative mode of travel.
