Italdesign's CEO, Jörg Astalosch and Airbus Urban Air Mobility General Manager Mathias Thomsen talk about PopUp. This concept for a modular air and ground transportation system is aiming to reduce traffic jams in megacitites of 2030.
During the 87th Geneva International Motor Show, Italdesign and Airbus world- premiered Pop.Up, the first modular, fully electric, zero emission concept vehicle system designed to relieve traffic congestion in crowded megacities. Pop.Up envisages a modular system for multi-modal transportation that makes full use of both ground and airspace. The feasible concept is the result of Italdesign and Airbus’ joint reflection on how to address the mobility challenges of megacities achievable for a majority, which has become one of the most pressing issues for commuters in megacities worldwide. With traffic congestion projected to hugely increase by 2030, the companies decided to combine their engineering expertise to tackle how to best achieve a sustainable, modular and multimodal urban mobility system – giving rise to the Pop.Up concept. Pop.Up System consists of a three layers concept: – an Artificial Intelligence platform that, based on its user knowledge, manages the travel complexity offering alternative usage scenarios and assuring a seamless travel experience; – a vehicle shaped as a passenger capsule designed to be coupled with two different and independent electric propelled modules, the ground module and the air module. Other public means of transportation (e.g. trains or hyperloops) could also integrate the Pop.Up capsule; – an interface module that dialogues with users in a fully virtual environment. The Pop.Up vehicle combines the flexibility of a small two seater ground vehicle with the freedom and speed of a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) air vehicle, thus bridging the automotive and aerospace domains. At the heart of the concept is a capsule: designed to accommodate passengers. This high-tech, monocoque carbon-fibre cocoon measures 2.6 metres long, 1.4 metres high, and 1.5 metres wide. The capsule transforms itself into a city car by simply coupling to the ground module, which features a carbon-fibre chassis and is battery powered. For megacity journeys with high congested traffic, the capsule disconnects from the ground module and is carried by a 5 by 4.4 metre air module propelled by eight counter-rotating rotors. In this configuration, Pop.Up becomes a urban self-piloted air vehicle, taking advantage of the third dimension to get from A to B efficiently whilst avoiding traffic congestion on the ground. Once passengers reach their destination, the air and ground modules with the capsule autonomously return to dedicated recharge stations to wait for their next customers.

2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES2017) Press Conference - Bob Carter BOB CARTER REMARKS: 2017 CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW Good afternoon, everyone! I am so happy to welcome you to the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show. But before I begin to tell you about what we have at the show this year I'd like to acknowledge and welcome Tomoyama-san, Sr. Managing Officer, TMC. Thank you, Tomoyama-san for joining us today. Now, I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t share our 2016 sales results: The industry ended with a best-ever December and best year with 17.5 M sales, exceeding 2015 and the 7th consecutive year of growth. Notably we've seen the car-truck mix move from 50/50 to 37/63 over the past three years, demonstrating the shift to SUVs and trucks is real. Toyota Motor Sales sold 2.45M vehicles in 2016.The Toyota brand was the #1 retail brand for the 5th consecutive year and, for the 15th consecutive year, the Camry was the no. 1 selling vehicle in America. Lexus had its 2nd best year in its 27-year history. OK, let’s get to it. Toyota has an amazing floor display this year that we are really proud of. You’re going to get a first look at Entune 3.0, our next-generation telematics system. We’re also showing off Smart Device Link. It’s a platform for app developers to connect smartphones with vehicles. I encourage every one of you to stop by and have a look. But today, we’re going to do something a bit different. We’re going to introduce you to a really special concept vehicle. And why is it so special? Because with all the talk about advances in automobile technology, it’s easy to lose sight of why we make cars in the first place. They’re for people. And at Toyota, we think the important question isn’t whether vehicles of the future will be equipped with automated or connected technologies. Of course they will. The important question is this: what will be the relationship between those vehicles and the people who use them? Will it be cold? Robotic? Sterile? Tool-like? Technology on wheels and nothing more? Or will it be warm and friendly? Engaging? Immersive? Because cars have always done more than just get us from point A to point B. They are our home on wheels. We connect with them. We build an emotional relationship. And thanks to our research into advanced artificial intelligence, we think that the future of the automobile is a vehicle that can connect with us right back. Ladies and gentlemen, it is my pleasure to introduce you to the advanced artificial intelligence system we call “Yui.” [TO YUI:] Say “hello”, Yui. YUI: HELLO YUI. [TO YUI:] Very funny. Yui learns from us, grows with us, and builds a relationship that is meaningful and emotional. What does that mean? Yui learns our preferences and our lifestyle; remembers where we like to go; pays attention to when we’re happy or sad. [YUI SCANS BOB, PULLS UP INFO AND BIOMETRICS] And helps in ways that are big and small, anticipates our needs and improve our lives. YUI: IS EVERYTHING ALL RIGHT, BOB? YOU SEEM STRESSED [TO YUI:] What did you expect, Yui? I’m on stage giving a speech to all these people. YUI: COME ON, BOB. WHY DON’T WE DO SOME BREATHING EXERCISES? [BOB TAKES A FEW DEEP BREATHS] [TO YUI:] Thanks, Yui. Much better. [TO YUI:] But what are you still doing up there on the screen? You’re supposed to be down there so I can let everyone see this amazing car! [YUI “JUMPS” OFF SCREEN AND ENTERS THE CONCEPT – I] Say hello to the Toyota Concept-I. First of all, this car is gorgeous. I want to recognize and congratulate CALTY Studio Chief Designer Ian Cartabiano, and Chief Engineer Makoto Okabe, and their teams for the amazing work they’ve done to bring it to life. But it’s more than just a pretty face. The CALTY team developed a concept called Kinetic Warmth. It’s a design philosophy that guided every element of Concept-I’s creation beginning with artificial intelligence. It follows from our belief that the vehicle of the future shouldn’t start with technology it should start with the experience of the people who use it. And so we built the Concept-I from the inside out, focusing on making it immersive, warm, and energetic. With assistance from the Toyota Innovation Hub in San Francisco, the interior of the vehicle is designed to help support that user experience. Lines flow from the center of the dashboard throughout the vehicle, and Yui can travel around them, using light, sound and even touch to communicate critical information. There’s an amazing 3-D, head up display to help keep the driver’s eyes and attention on the road, but information also appears like magic on the dashboard, the walls, seats wherever you need it, when you need it. Even the exterior of the vehicle is about building the relationship between the car and the world around it, communicating with others on the road while expressing motion, excitement, and even a little bit of magic.
