Smart Truck Rental System in 2030
Yuhan Zhang has designed an intelligent rental truck system for mega cities in 2030. This is a BeeHive Concept, a solution to the present-day problems, such as traffic jam, energy waste, parking lot, etc. The designer is of opinion that in future city transportation system will be divided into 3 different tracks: overground highway for high speed cars, ground for pedestrians and low speed vehicles and uderground for subway. The concept presupposes creating the so-called Hive centers along the highway, bases for parking and dispatching Bee trucks, aimed at saving parking space in the city. A Bee truck is an automated driving rental truck hired by customers through internet. It uses electric hub motor wheel drive system, with facial expression on its skin and electric magnetic connector on top of it. A Bee truck will feature two runing modes: a high-speed mode that moves fast below the highway with electric magnetic power and a low-speed mode, where the truck can land on the ground to deliver cargo to the customer. After a mission is accomplished, the vehicle will look for the nearest hive center to rest awaiting the next task.
