The M2 Shuttle works as a programmable and specialized transportation for executives. Through the cybernetic interface the user can program the frequency and the features of his travels. The intelligent cybernetic interface identifies the constants among the executives which are demanding the same kind of services, for instance: The address proximity, a common destination area, the departure or arrival time, etc.
The vehicle has a maximum capacity of 8 passengers, 7 standard seats and 1 handicap place.
The vehicle sits on a Servo-electronic platform which uses a drive by wire technology in all its mechanical systems. The platform is powered by 35 HP electric brushless hub motors in each wheel, configuration which allows to spread out the driver and passenger cockpit on top of the servo-electronic power platform, maximizing the passenger space.
Given the current autonomous techonologies that are being tested, a possible future evolution of the servo-electronic power platform could make this vehicle fully autonomous. In other words, a driver would be unnecessary to operate the vehicle.
The Driver cockpit is completely isolated from the passengers to give a customized environment. The passenger compartment environment provides a quiet and reserved area to allow executives take advantage of the transportation time to work or rest.
The M2 Shuttle offers a Wi-Fi system and comfortable seats with bent headrests that maximize privacy and invite the passengers for a nap.
