Audi recently presented a design project in cooperation with the Munich University of Applied Sciences that charged students with designing “human mobility solutions” that address plausible future transportation conditions. Prior to designing the vehicle itself, University students had to predict the most pressing environmental, technical, and social issues facing the world in the future. These guidelines spawned the theme “Intelligent Emotion.”
The project involved lead designers and officials from Audi, and reportedly generated a number of ideas that they say might see implementation in future models. Wolfgang Egger, head of Audi Design said, “The students have addressed the subject of mobility in the future with very well-conceived and lucidly presented approaches.” Their innovations included vehicle weight reduction and alternative power and drivetrain sources.
