  • Pop.Up Next – a modular concept to solve traffic problems in cities
  • Board Member for Procurement, Dr. Bernd Martens: “A vision that could permanently change urban life”
  • The study employs lightweight construction, a 49-inch screen, facial recognition and eye-tracking

At the Geneva Autosalon from 8 to 18 March, Audi, Italdesign and Airbus are presenting “Pop.Up Next”, an entirely electric, fully automatic concept for horizontal and vertical mobility. In the distant future this vehicle could transport people in cities quickly and conveniently on the road and in the air, at the same time solving traffic problems. The dominant interior feature is a 49-inch screen, while interaction between humans and the machine is performed by speech and face recognition, eye-tracking and a touch function.
