Tesla – Future Mobility for Smart Cities 2040
The future of the smart city will require the integration of complex multiple information and communication technologies with city assets including transportation systems and waste management, for example.
Such integration needs to filter through the micro to the macro level to better sustain the urban environment.
Mandavkar's project looks at an adaptable platform for a shared mobility business model to make a shared vehicle use preferable to vehicle ownership.
The project makes use of interchange stations which serves as hubs for the vehicle's different travel modes. The design makes use of upgradable attachments which can be changed at interchange stations depndoing on user-requirements and travel modes. The business model for this vehicle service can vary, to be either an on-demand (shared/rental) vehicle or a personal vehicle.
