Autonomous vehicles will start showing up on roadways in the near-future and will change the way that drivers get around, which is something this Audi concept vehicle takes into account.
Designed by Yunsik Kim, the vehicle is characterized by its shapeshifting form that will change according to the mode that it's in. Drivers will have access to a steering wheel in Private mode, while Social mode lets passengers take advantage of Level 5 autonomy and lounge as they travel.
The Audi concept vehicle will also slide a wooden privacy shade up around the passenger in Private mode to help them bask in a relaxing environment without onlookers being able to see them. The car identifies how vehicles will change their priority from a driver-focused form to a passenger-focused one as autonomy takes over.
