Citroën Autonomous Mobility Vision
Powered by AI
Last October, Citroën, Accor, and JCDecaux revealed their incredible collaborative project—the Urban Collëctif. This ambitious endeavor sought to transform urban mobility through a unique combination of automotive technology, hospitality expertise, and outdoor advertising. The result: the amazing Citroën Autonomous Mobility Vision.
At its core is an AI-enabled skateboard chassis, the Citroën Skate built on Goodyear’s omnidirectional spheres and powered by four wheel-mounted electric motors. It boasts level 5 autonomy, 360 degrees of travel, and a top speed of 16mph, depending on the environment. Most strikingly, this exceptional skateboard platform is compatible with a range of interchangeable pods designed for different uses: the Sofitel En Voyage module provides passengers with luxurious wooden exteriors and orange velvet upholstery, while the Pullman Power Fitness pod equips users with a rowing machine and spin bike for fitness on-the-go.
This intriguing concept has been hailed as revolutionary for future transportation solutions, and it’s not hard to see why. Many believe that these ingenious pods could improve traffic fluidity by up to 35%. However, whether the Skate will ever reach production remains to be seen. But one thing is clear: this groundbreaking initiative offers a glimpse of our dynamic transit future.
