EO – „I go“ in Latin – was developed as internal project and, with a large number of degrees of freedom, offers considerably more mobility than conventional vehicles. It is designed both for cross-country trips and inner-city areas.
This vehicle has been designed as pure concept vehicle and thus offers an ideal platform for experiments with new and innovative technologies in the area of electric mobility.
As opposed to a conventional car, the independent suspension of the EO smart connecting car is entirely configurable through four linear actuators. This is why the axis is extremely mobile, lifts and lowers itself, performs a 90 degree-swing for a sideways drive, allows separate steering in the front and in the back, turns the vehicle on the spot, changes the morphology of its height and length, and is thus in a position to adapt to practically all driving situations possible.
Within the subproject ITEM of the eMob2011ff project, this technology will be further developed with the aim to create a fully autonomous vehicle by adding more sensors.
