No Cars, No Problem

When designing this conceptual project, designer Robert Hagenstrom imagined a world untouched by the automotive industry- a world that had never seen a car. What would urban transport look like if it were invented right at this moment? Likely not the expansive yet restrictive traffic system in place today. With Urban Flower, getting around is re-imagined as safe, electric, uninterrupted smoothness…

Lanes, traffic lights, zebra crossings, standard parking lots, and the car itself would be replaced with compact, solar powered charging stations, and public personal vehicles available at the swipe of a credit card. The personal craft would navigate the streets much in the same way as a person on a crowded sidewalk; aware of surrounding objects, and in constant communication others around it, avoiding congestion as it navigates unique routes to its destination.
