Audi Urban Future Initiative during a International CES wiring fair

By means of an interactive vaunt in a form of a unconventional city model, a
Audi Urban Future Initiative highlights a needs of commuters in vast cities. The grant behind it come from a City Dossier Boston, a investigate plan by Audi and a design bureau Höweler + Yoon, winners of a Audi Urban Future Award 2012. The formula can be practical to other vast cities, too. Specifically, a group of a Initiative analyzed bottlenecks in a trade network and subsequent idealist solutions from a findings. Visitors to CES can adopt a viewpoint of 3 deputy forms of commuter and knowledge how technologies can give a Road Warrior, a Straphanger and a Reverse Commuter entrance to uniformly doing mobility in a future.

The Road Warrior lives in a suburb and commutes by vehicle to a workplace in a city center. On attainment there, a time-consuming hunt for a parking space begins. The CES vaunt demonstrates, for example, a combined value of piloted parking for this form of commuter: The vehicle is left in front of a parking garage and a motorist starts a routine of parking regulating a smartphone. While a Road Warrior is already walking a final yards to a office, a cars parks itself autonomously – during a smallest stretch to a other vehicles, as a driver’s doorway can now sojourn closed. Equally, a reserve domain in a stretch to other parked cars is also superfluous. The city, too, advantages from this technology, as a fit doing of parking places creates giveaway space that can be greened, for example.

The Straphanger also lives outward a city and commutes into a center. For a journey, Straphangers use several means of transport, that are scheduled in notation detail: First they go by vehicle to a park float area, where they change to open transportation. The final partial of a track is lonesome on foot. The interfaces between these opposite stairs have to interconnect seamlessly. For this kind of commuter, limit comfort is a wilful element. Today already, Audi drivers can see sight and sight connectors in a surrounding area on a arrangement around Audi connect.

The Reverse Commuter lives in a city core and travels to work outward it – opposite a upsurge and customarily but hold-ups. In a evening, tighten to home in a middle city, things get difficult. Tired out by trade lights and rush-hour traffic, Reverse Commuters start their daily hunt for somewhere to park in a evening. The vehicle manufacturer Audi is operative on, for example, ways of holding a aria off a motorist in stressful situations like this: Piloted pushing in city trade would concede a vehicle to navigate a streets on a own. This is an sparkling prospect, and usually one of many taken from a CES exhibit. Thanks to films and visualizations, visitors to CES can see how destiny technologies such as those from Audi’s rough growth projects can have a postulated change on civic mobility.

“Across a globe, cities are flourishing intensely rapidly. Our technologies can make a grant to assembly a mandate of mobility in megacities. Audi connect, Car-to-X, piloted parking and piloted pushing are only a few of a forward-looking solutions where we are dire forward with a networking of a vehicle and a city. we am assured that in destiny even some-more than today, a vehicle will enter into an intelligent attribute with a city,” says Rupert Stadler, authority of a executive house of AUDI AG.

The Audi Urban Future Award promotes a dialog with experts and researchers in a fields of civic planning, design and urbanism, and provides new impulses for a discuss about mobility in cities of a future. From 16 Dec 2013 to 5 Jan 2014, meddlesome persons could opinion online to select a US group for a Audi Urban Future Award 2014. The doubt acted by a foe for a Award is: How distant can information offer as formulation collection for civic mobility? On a dusk before a International CES, Professor Rupert Stadler announced a winners Philip Parsons, civic planner and owner of Sasaki Strategies, and Federico Parolotto, mobility consultant and principal of Mobility in Chain and their proposals (read some-more during Thus a initial of 4 contributions to a Audi Urban Future Award 2014 has now been established.

The Audi Urban Future Award is hold each dual years, in 2014 for a third time. The foe began in 2010 with idealist proposals for civic mobility. The Award 2012 showed mobility scenarios in 5 civil regions worldwide. With a aim of creation a Initiative even some-more specific, a Award 2014 turns a courtesy to feasibility studies in a horizon of existent civic formulation projects. In Oct 2014 Audi will benefaction a Audi Urban Future Award and esteem income of 100,000 euros for a best proposals.
