Today, many auto makers have successfully built and tested their autonomous driving cars for more than a million miles without any mishaps. Now, flexible workspace provider Regus has tied up with Rinspeed, a Swiss creative think tank and mobility lab, to develop a self-driving concept car called the XchangE. This concept will be displayed at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The concept is designed such that it allows the two front seats to swivel backwards, creating a mobile work and meeting space for four people. The car’s advanced technology and infotainment systems allow passengers to connect to their office, work productively, or make a presentation using a laptop. The result is a comfortable and confidential space that turns a traffic jam on the way to the airport into productive time ‘at the office’.
Andre Sharpe, Global Product and Business Development Director at Regus, saidd: “Regus has long been committed to developing the Future of Work. Now this innovative car will change wasted time into productive time. People already work on the road, thanks to Regus. Now, with the XchangE, Regus’s third place network could encompass the car itself as well as the roadside. A consultant or sales rep could fit in 7-8 hours of productive work each day, using a driverless vehicle, Regus hubs on motorways, and our network of business centres. It’s another illustration of Regus’s commitment to leading the workplace revolution.”
