It will also work as the communication agent for other road users showing information for pedestrians. In addition, the activation and deactivation of large projection surfaces are possible. Unoccupied cars may display weather or news on this projection panels.
There are many digital surfaces on the car's interior and exterior which take the communication between occupants and car to a new level. The car uses Black Panel Grille and LED displays in place of headlamps and tail lamps. In case if someone wants to use 1+1 sharing function, the car will show possible occupants on the same route. Furthermore, the individuals can accept or reject the co-passenger as per their wish. In case if two passengers with same interest occupy both the seats, the car will display common interests like concerts or sports they like.
Autonomous: The swarm intelligence with autonomous driving makes hiring cars the thing of the past. The car will predict the demand according to individual needs and be ready. So, just get out of your home and it will be there for you. Interconnected cars having V2V communication are always on the road for your service all the time.
