Daniel Platek, Artur Gaca – Audi City Bus

Audi City Bus Concept. Modern, designed from the basics form is presenting our forward-looking approach to design.The main idea, which inspired us in the project was to create a modern concept of a bus which is possibile to produce within 10 years. Primarily it was important to offer high level of comfort for passengers – simple, non-problematic organization of motion inside the vehicle. Dedicated space for disabled people and mothers with children make the vehicle accessible to all. Its interior is made of plastic, rubber and metal to help maintain its purity. Handles and poles to hold up while bus is driving are equipped with stop buttons informing the driver of the passenger’s desire to exit at the next stop. The floor was divided into zones based on colors, informing about it’s role. Dark colors are the area in which we move, bright colors are areas to stand/seat. Thanks to the glassing between the bus side frame and the ceiling passenger has the possibility to look at the sky while driving. The workplace for the driver feature touch screens for adjusting the seat and mirrors. In this case, we abandoned the traditional mirrors for the digital cameras which are located on the outside of the bus. View captured by them give the driver high awareness of the enviroment while driving. The buttons on the outside of the vehicle allows the door to be opened. The bus is equipped in digital screens informing about the line number and direction of travel.
