Designers explore future of mobility at CES 2018

Mobility proved to be a popular topic at this year old  Consumer Electronics Show. Our Dezeen Debrief roundup movie presents highlights of this occasion, including delivery dogs that are mechanical and a car.

The future of driving will be… walking

Hyundai introduced its concept for a walking automobile . Called Elevate, the vehicle that is proposed would have extendable alloy legs, which might allow it to negotiate irregular and harmful terrain.

The South Korean carmaker claims emergency workers could be helped by the automobile rescue people in areas, along with being suitable for use.

Who allowed the robo dogs out?

German automotive firm, Continental, revealed that a prototype mechanical mutt effective at delivering parcels to clients’ doorsteps.

The brand imagines the autonomous canines would be driven around in Continental’s CUbE minibus before being released to do their rounds.

It wasn’t all good news for robots, though. The show’s own humanoid bot was the victim of a driverless hit and run. Promobot was on its way to CES when it was”hit and ruined” with a self-driving Tesla.

AI AI captain

Elsewhere at CES, brands shown just how artificial intelligence and virtual reality can be incorporated in transportation.

Brazilian tech startup Hoobox debuted an electric wheelchair that converts facial expressions into motion using AI.

Kisses, winks, and smile are just a few of the expressions recognised from the wheelchair, that dictate its speed and direction.

VR = Vomit Remedy

Can virtual reality cure auto illness?  Holoride introduced a VR alternative for passengers who suffer from nausea in driverless cars. 

The technology syncs with the VR experience with the motion of the car to be able to combat motion sickness.
