the ‘ATNMBL’ by designers mike & maaike is a vehicle concept for the year 2040 that is an autonomobile, a title that merges autonomy and automobile. the scheme is an automated vehicle that instead of driving, the user simply answers the question ‘where can I take you?’. while this seems futuristic, the technology exists to have cars think for themselves. GPS, sophisticated sensor, and navigation databases will allow driverless vehicles to operate on the same roads we have today. the vehicle is electric with solar cells on the roof to assist in producing energy. inside there is a large wrap around seating bank for seven with no driver’s seat or steering wheel. the car focuses on allowing users to enjoy quality time on the road, with the option to socialize, watch movies, work, sleep or surf the web. the car has large windows that allow the rider to enjoy the view and an interior that is designed more like a domestic space than a traditional car interior.
