Spaces on Wheels is a playful research project that invites people to envision the profound paradigm shift the development of self-driving cars could have on our everyday lives.
We are on the verge of what could be the most significant period of change in the automobile industry. Technologies like electrification, connected and automated driving are making notable progress. One day, in the not so distant future; fully autonomous vehicles could be a common occurrence on our everyday streets. This would not only redefine how people and goods move around our cities, but also redefine the very fabric of our daily lives. With this in mind, we have been working with IKEA‘s future living lab, SPACE10 to bring their exploration of urban mobility to life.
Spaces on Wheels explores how car interiors will change once automotive vehicles become commonplace. It is comprised of seven concepts — office, cafe, healthcare, farm, play, hotel, and shop — each of which addresses a specific use. To allow people to envision a future ecosystem of flexible, purpose-built spaces that are available on demand and designed to accommodate diverse needs and lifestyles, you can order and explore each of the 7 Spaces on Wheels directly from your phone via augmented reality.
