Hyundai has Cars Docking with Homes and Becoming Shared Living Spaces
South Korea– Hyundai has joined the flock of automakers revealing future ideas around autonomous car technology. Their ‘Mobility Vision’ concept includes the Smart House technology, a merging of mobility and living and working spaces.Hyundai designers propose that vehicles of the future might not look anything like the cars of today. Rather, the vehicle interior would become an extension of the home or office and physically dock with adjacent living and working spaces. The idea is to be able to share the space for entertainment, productivity or energy transfer activities.
Smart House aims to address limited living space issues in urban environments by making architecture more flexible. The vehicle could potentially contain a heating and air-conditioning system efficient enough to warm or cool the rest of an interior space. Beyond that, the concept is a solution for keeping a vehicle in use for a greater range of time versus simply when it is driven.
