2013 Geneva Motor Show: Rinspeed microMAX Concept is a network swarm car

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 20, 2013

The microMAX Concept from Swiss manufacturer Rinspeed will be launched at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. The microMAX is described as a 'network swarm car', which chooses the finest parts of public and private transport and combines them to have the ultimate commuter vehicle. Rinspeed said that urban travel will be reformed because of this new app that Harmon developed for the microMAX using cloud technology.

The travel information (such as routes, speed and passengers) of any microMAX can be accessed by the 'urbanSWARM' community members. They can plan out their trip by using the Harmon app and by accessing the microMAX community.

The microMAX comes with a coffee machine, fridge and wi-fi connectivity. Upright seats will be used by passengers while Harman NFC (Near Field Communication) could recognize the drivers as well as the passengers. A 19-inch touchscreen controls most of the vehicle’s functions. An all-electric forklift drive system powers the microMAX.

Rinspeed aims for this concept to be charged at urban recharging stations. To make sure that pedestrians can hear the microMAX, the automaker equipped it with Harmon's HALOsonic technology. It’s estimated that if Rinspeed puts the microMAX concept into production by Rinspeed, it will be priced between €5000 and €10,000 depending on what features and materials it has.
