during the 2014 geneva international motor show, AKKA technologies unveiled the link&go 2.0 concept, a self-driving car created and designed for the city of the future. hooked up to a completely integrated electric platform, the link&go 2.0 rethinks the urban environment and mobility by linking the inhabitants with other system users, along with the intelligent platform itself. the concept vehicle is fully autonomous, and is equipped with several sensors such as cameras and lasers, which are capable of analyzing the vehicle’s environment in a 360 degree radius, preventing any blind spots. complete with a wire control system, the vehicle also incorporates four directive and motorized wheels that offer new energy recovery and braking strategies. link&go 2.0 also merges different localization techniques to address self-driving needs in all environments.
