When we talk about the electric revolution (it happens to me too) the important aspect linked to freedom is often underlined. Freedom from fossil fuels, freedom of movement, probably freedom of ownership of a vehicle. And freedom from driving, as the future will consist of autonomous vehicles.
For someone, these freedoms can be added to the very important one from architectural barriers: this is the case for those who can benefit from an electric vehicle for the disabled.
Sharing means of transport will be really important for those who have always needed electric vehicles complex and expensive: people in wheelchairs, or with movement difficulties, will be able to benefit greatly from the transport of the future.
A joint project by Italdesign ed Etisalat guide change without barrier: it's called WheeM-I (Wheelchairs Mobility Interface) and made its first appearance in Dubai.
In the traditional week of Gitex technology, WheeM-I showed everyone its versatility: you can go directly with a wheelchair, and you are immediately ready to go.
WheeM-I can be booked just like a car sharing vehicle, through a special app, and after use you can leave it parked and go away.
WheeM-I, freedom and security
Italdesign's vehicle has all the credentials to make life easier for those with mobility problems: its sensors avoid impact with obstacles, whether they are other vehicles or architectural barriers.
Here is a video presentation that shows it in action:
The future of transport is near
I consider this beautiful electric vehicle project for disabled people an intermediate step in the creation of a universal vehicle system.
Mobile solutions on which those who have legs and those who do not have them can go, to go wherever the mind wants to go.
