The ideals behind technological invention lie solely in wanting to make life easier and that is exactly what the 'EO' prototype car sets out to do. This car resembles the common Smart car but delves a lot deeper into integrative driving. The EO prototype car literally morphs during driving to increase efficiency in vehicle speed and maneuverability.

The car can lengthen its body or contract it for when drivers want to travel faster or need to make constrained turns. Its tires can turn at 90 degree angles making parallel parking a way to show off one's driving rather than demote it. The car's design plan also includes the ability to link onto another partner vehicle while driving. The EO prototype car is from the Robotics Innovation Center at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence and it seems the engineers are attacking anything and everything to do with easier driving with this model.
