Audi connected mobility concept (1)

Στην έκθεση του Τόκιο μαζί με το TT RS, η Audi παρουσίασε και το connected mobility concept, ένα μοναδικό Q3 που ενσωματώνει ένα ηλεκτρικό πολυλειτουργικό longboard πατίνι.

Το πατίνι έχει μήκος 1,05 μέτρα με την μπαταρία του να του δίνει αυτονομία 12 χιλιομέτρων και τελική ταχύτητα 30 χλμ/ώρα. Όταν δεν χρησιμοποιείται αποθηκεύεται σε μια ειδική θήκη στον πίσω προφυλακτήρα, εκεί όπου ταυτόχρονα φορτίζει. Το σύστημα ενημέρωσης και ψυχαγωγίας του αυτοκινήτου, συνδέεται με το smartphone του οδηγού και υπολογίζει την ταχύτερη δυνατή επιλογή, μιας και χρησιμοποιεί τα δεδομένα της κίνησης σε πραγματικό χρόνο ώστε να διαπιστώσει αν ο οδηγός θα πάει γρηγορότερα στον προορισμό του είτε χρησιμοποιώντας το πατίνι, είτε χρησιμοποιώντας το αυτοκίνητο. Αφού κάνει τους υπολογισμούς του, προτείνει στον οδηγό ποιο από τα δύο οχήματα πρέπει να χρησιμοποιήσει, με τον οδηγό αν επιλέγει το πατίνι, τότε το σύστημα εντοπίζει τον πλησιέστερο χώρο στάθμευσης για το παρκάρισμα του Q3.

Auto China 2016: Audi presents Audi connected mobility concept

  • Mixed mobility solution for urban areas
  • Seamless navigation for car and integrated electric longboard
  • New Audi Q3 debuts in China

At Auto China 2016 in Beijing, Audi presents the Audi connected mobility concept, a concept car based on the Audi Q3, the brand’s urban compact SUV. The concept offers sporty and multi-functional mobility for megacities with dense traffic and road restrictions. Tailored to markets with growing urbanization such as China, this lifestyle concept was developed at Audi Research & Development in Beijing and focuses on young, progressive drivers.

An electrically powered multifunctional longboard, measuring 1.05 meters in length, is integrated into the rear bumper of the car for convenient storage and removal. To ensure permanent usability, the device is charged automatically while loaded in the car. The board’s premium design includes superior materials such as carbon fiber and aluminum.

The car’s infotainment system is linked to the smartphone calendar of the user. Based on the destination and planned arrival time, the system will calculate the fastest mobility mix based on real-time traffic data. In case the longboard option is faster, the system will recommend a parking space nearby so that the driver may continue the commute to the destination with the electric board. The navigation information synchronizes with the Audi MMI connect App on the user’s smartphone that continues to guide the route.

The multi-functional longboard has a battery range of more than 12 kilometers and reaches a maximum speed of 30 km/h. The board can be utilized in three riding modes: In “scooter mode”, the phone is conveniently clipped to the unfolded handlebar to display directions. The speed is adjusted via remote control attached to the right handlebar grip. A backpack can be conveniently clipped onto the steering rack. With the handlebar folded down in “sport mode”, the rider controls the speed via remote control in his hand. In a third mode, the board serves as a transport device for luggage or shopping bags: Connected wirelessly to a smartphone or smart-watch, the board automatically follows its owner.

The Audi connected mobility concept  is based on the Audi Q3 which is produced locally in China. More than 70,000 units were sold in the region in 2015, making the Q3 the market leader in the premium compact SUV segment. At Auto China 2016, Audi launches the new Audi Q3 on the Chinese market.
