With the world saturated by personal technology and access to the Internet almost anywhere, communication is easier than ever before. This should bring people closer together; however, the absence of face to face interaction has brought people to a more digitally isolating world. The Volkswagen Gemeinde is the perfect blend of transportation and community.
The Volkswagen Gemeide is designed as personal mobility vehicle to combat this isolation.
It is able to connect with other Gemeinde to then create an ideal room or community between multiple vehicles. The car can autonomously drive individually as personal transport or as a group of public transport.
For example, a group of single passenger vehicles could all drive to a convenient meeting place for all the occupants. Once they meet up at a location, each vehicle would connect and transform into a single vehicle with one single interior space.
This would encourage users to communicate face to face rather than screen to screen. The system will bring people closer together using public and private transportation.
