January 9, 2015 at 18:03

BOT is a completely autonomous transportation solution for areas, which are less populated (such as Finland). The vision of a vehicle for a new transportation system consists in would be an alternative for private cars (which are preferably used for commuting) and public transport.
Currently, new “unmanned” vehicles were designed primarily for personal use. However, the BOT concept involves the introduction of low-cost and safe autopilot in the public transport system.
Designer Chris Luchowiec developed a concept that combines the basic principles of a taxi and a public bus.

The car itself is a four-seat “cab”, equipped with all necessary facilities for the safe autonomous movement through the city streets. According to the designer, the car will communicate with passengers during the trip and create a cozy atmosphere in the cabin with soft music and warm lighting. BOT concept took first place in the competition Michelin Design Challenge 2014.
