This week at CES, all things tech are being unleashed, today Mercedes-Benz has taken the wraps off its new concept self-driving car called the F 015 Luxury in Motion (Yes, that the full name) . It’s design is a sleek pod with a spacious passenger compartment, and has four rotating seats that can face each other. In side the car, there is an array of screens that let passengers interact with controls and entertainment, and they can interact with hand gestures and eye tracking.
It also has a tron like pair of LED lights both at the front and rear that change color based on the car’s current driving mode: white in manual, blue in autonomous. One would ask themselves if it’s necessary for people to know whether you’re driving or your car in manual or auto mode.
This Mercedes-Benz is made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), which goes all the way to drivetrain, in fact: the car runs on hydrogen, and the tanks are made of it. Considering how strong hydrogen tanks need to be to survive a crash, that’s a vote of trust for this brand.
