Automated City - this concept revolves around the concept of creating a city around an innovative transportation network.
Pedestrian Route - Vehicles travel through a sub-tunnel that doubles as a pedestrian bridge. This allows vehicle traffic to flow uninterrupted by crosswalks, pedestrians to move freely, and easy access to the transit vehicles
Theme Function - access to the vehicle itself needed to be changed due to the unique socially friendly wrap around seating. a large front opening allows for easy access without excessive moving parts.
Module-Based Construction - Modules can be removed and replaced so that maintenance can be done separate from the vehicle. this allows the vehicles to constantly remain in public use with much less downtime.
Interior Media Experience - Because this vehicle is fully automated, many components such and steering, can be removed creating more flexibility within the given space. Due to Mitsubishi being a producer of visual entertainment products, it seems appropriate to showcase that element as well. The interior become both a form of visual entertainment as well as product promotion.
Diamond Theme - The design theme is inspired by the facets of diamonds. This theme is created by abstracting the Mitsubishi logo to create a geometric, faceted theme that resonates with the brand, but generates a unique identity.
Automated City Sub-Tunnels - In this city transit concept, all vehicles commuting within the city would be fully automated and operate in a controlled sub-tunnel environment
