Top 30 Transportation Ideas in July

From Foldable Electric Bikes to Autonomous IoT Vechiles

— July 23, 2016 — Autos
The top July 2016 transportation innovations reveal some significant advancements in the way that people will be able to get around in the near future.

Now more than ever, there are car-sharing programs that put an emphasis on shared ownership and sustainable power systems. These qualities are exemplified in an initiative from the town of Chattanooga in Tennessee that's making it possible for drivers to share electric vehicles that run on solar power. A bike program by the name of 'Buzzbike' also shares these traits, offering free rentals for commuters in London.

One of the most interesting vehicle designs to hit the streets is 'Olli,' a 3D-printed car from Local Motors that's autonomous and powered by the supercomputer IBM Watson, which means that it is able to answer questions in the same way that a bus driver would be able to.
