Audi Aicon
The Aicon design shows the future with Level 5 Full Automation because there is no need to design around driver controls. The 4-door 2+2 features opposed doors that open to either end with no B-pillar; two individual seats that swivel up to 15 degrees for ease of entry or to turn toward conversations; and storage space at both the front and the rear due to the packaging of the electric-drive system. The seats can slide nearly twenty inches on a raised platform, and two additional passengers can sit on a fixed bench seat. When a passenger enters the vehicle, LED accents illuminate, a Personal Intelligent Assistant recognizes the passenger and activates all personal settings and a full range of communications electronics.
