MYBUS - DRIVE SAFE
2007 Michelin Outstanding Design Award
MYBUS is a vehicle intended to be safer not only for passengers but forpedestrians as well. Comfort, passenger protection and safe interaction withother vehicles are delivered by new proactive safety technologies. Electronicstability programs, smart cruise control, brake by wire, rear detectionsystems, smart wing mirrors, and Michelin “Twell” tires are the newesttechnologies that can improve safety and comfort for the driver and thepassengers.The use of an electrical power source was also a main concern to betaken into consideration since it reduces significantly the environmentalimpact and the danger of an explosion in case of accident. Not being a hybridvehicle, power is yielded by electric cells placed above the rear wheels, awayfrom the most obvious impact zones. In order to improve safety, each wheel hasits own independent engine, so that the on-board computer can determine theideal power to apply them. This engine works according to the road conditions,the type of driving and helps anticipate and react to an imminent accidentsituation. All these features are aimed only at making MYBUS the ideal vehiclefor those who consider safety a top priority, not renouncing style, design and comfort.
