An intelligent and emotional entity.
The design idiom of the car with the star will still be characterised by the values of emotion and intelligence in the year 2030. The current Mercedes-Benz design philosophy of “sensual purity” will thus be expressed in the fully automated and networked vehicles of the future. More than ever, cars will be more than just a means of transport, as the sketch of the Mercedes-Benz “Concept Digital Core”, designed by the Advanced Design, shows: The idea of a sporty, emotive fastback model with a puristically clear design. Quite simply: “hot and cool”. The car of the future will literally anticipate our every desire by monitoring our vision. Numerous sensors and cameras will record information to be forwarded by intelligent fibre structures and processed at the relevant location – that is how the “Concept Digital Core” interacts with its environment.
Then, there are the counteractions which considerably facilitate operation – in many respects the driver and automobile will become one intelligent and emotional entity.
