RINSPEED SNAP, A MOBILITY ECOSYSTEM AT CES 2018

//RINSPEED SNAP, A MOBILITY ECOSYSTEM AT CES 2018

Self-driving electric cars full of IT components are supposed to relieve the burden on congested streets and polluted cities. With the Snap concept vehicle, Rinspeed shows off a comprehensive approach for how this could work: For the first time, the vehicles also offer meaningful immobile use, because the chassis and the body structures go their separate ways. Frank M. Rinderknecht, Founder and CEO of Rinspeed Inc., simply relegates all components susceptible to wear and aging as well as all technology relevant to data processing to the so-called “skateboard,” the consequently “intelligent” and fully automated chassis of the electric vehicle. While the classic automakers celebrate the moment when the body and the chassis come together (“marriage”) as a highlight of every plant tour, “skateboards” and “pods” of the Snap are only temporary companions.
