At the Geneva Motor Show,
Renault introduced a robo-vehicle and ride-hailing concept, with an iconic
design meant to integrate into the environment, and maximize new ways of moving
around congested cities.
A first of its kind, Renault
EZ-GO, an electric, autonomous, shared robo-vehicle concept is both a vehicle
and a service that allows people to hail a ride either from a fixed or mobile
location. Renault believes vehicle-service integration combined with connection
to city infrastructure - leveraging sensors, data analytics, connected
services, multimodal systems and more - will be a key characteristic of
successful mobility solutions and smart cities of the future.
EZ-GO is the first of a series
of Renault concept cars focused on mobility services that will be unveiled
during 2018. EZ-GO follows the successful introduction of Renault’s electric,
connected, level-4 autonomous drive demo car for individual ownership, Symbioz.
Available on demand, via an
application as well as through permanent stations throughout the city, the
robo-vehicle combines the flexibility and comfort of individual cars with the
efficiency, safety and worry-free driving delegation offered by public
transport. EZ-GO’s innovative architecture and cocoon-like styling was designed
to maximize the field of vision of the autonomous system's sensors, and allow
natural light through the panoramic glass roof. The robo-vehicle’s height does
not interfere with pedestrians' view of the city. Once connected to its
station, EZ-GO offers a wide flat floor flush with the boarding ramp, making it
easy to get onboard, whether walking or with wheels. The characteristics of
EZ-GO make it possible to change usage and user scenarios, keeping with the
"Easy Life" approach which is at the heart of Renault’s DNA.
