A personal city sanctuary
The AI:ME redefines the relationship between occupants and car. It is created to be the users’ partner. This is made possible by Audi AI, which enables the vehicle to continually interact with its surroundings and passengers to better adapt to the requirements of those on board for a more comfortable experience.
Featuring a lounge-like interior replete with textile seats, walnut wood surfaces and more, the concept makes users feel at home and do what they like during the journey.
Designed as 2 plus-x-seater, the concept offers a range of features for communications, entertainment, and relaxation. For starters, the interaction systems are operated by eye-tracking, voice input, and touch-sensitive fields. Using VR goggles in the car, passengers could watch movies, play games, surf the internet, and even get some work done on the go. They could also simply switch off and close their eyes to unwind.
Relaxation plays a key role in the Audi AI:ME’s innovative design. Active noise control suppresses external disturbances, allowing occupants to enjoy meditative silence or concert-hall quality music. The concept also brings occupants closer to nature. Large glass windows and pergola features on the roof allow for more natural light. There are even real plants on board – which is a first in automobile history. The vegetation gives occupants a feeling of proximity to nature and helps to improve air quality in the car at the same time.
The car’s electro-chromatic control tints the windows to moderate the entry of light and heat, while sophisticated filter technology prevents odors from the city from entering into the interior of the Audi AI:ME to keep occupants comfortable.
And if users feel peckish, there are magnetic holders to keep cups and plates in place when the car is on the move.
