People can ask ride-request to these Bots, it can be easily done via a mobile device. This cab will pick up user at any location, just like a taxi will do and drive the user to the destination. A single cab that is shared, theoretically can replace 4 private cars, thus, making great contribution to reduce traffic congestion. Aside from that, since BOT autonomous cab doesn't require parking spaces, it allows more urban space given back to the people. Unlike buses or trains which operate even when they are empty, BOTs only operate when needed and where needed.
The design of this cab features friendliness, honesty, simplicity, and optimism, few aspects that often forgotten in automotive industry. It's not egocentric, it creates better connection between you and other people.

Based on research, there is 2-digit growth for bikes and scooters sales in emerging countries. This means there's a great demand for cost-effective, efficient personal mobility in crowded traffic. Unfortunately, current bicycle designs don't really address these demands, therefore, Cross X hybrid bicycle makes an attempt to bridge the gap. It's a bike which can be used for medical emergencies in secluded areas or browsing around large campuses.

There are still many cities in the every country that have narrow roads, lanes, or require heavy vehicles to go through. It takes a lot of time for an ambulance to drive through the traffic in order to give medical attention, this delay can also mean risk the safety of the patient. Paramedic can ride Cross X to reach the location faster and provide the first aid to the patient. The hybrid design of this bike allows paramedic to take advantage of the electric power, paramedic can keep essential medical emergency response kit inside the built-in storage compartment and use the battery power to operate communication devices.
Toyota has revealed stunning Toyota FT-1 concept car at the North American International Auto Show. The name itself FT-1 means "Future Toyota" where the number "1" represents the ultimate. It was formulated for the first time by Calty Design Research for Sony Playstation Gran Turismo game environment, then this concept sports car leapt from screen to the stage in a race-inspired press conference at COBO Hall.
According to the designers, FT-1 has become the ultimate expression of a Toyota coupe design, it's been built based on Toyota's rich sports coupe heritage you can see similarity with Celica, 2000GT, MR2, or something more recent Scion FR-S. This project started 2 years ago and the result is awesome, thanks to the love and passion dedicated by Calty design team. It's a unique fusion between emotional and rational factors that deliver dramatic design expression with iconic Toyota identity. The goal of this project is to develop future generations of products that connect better with Toyota's global consumer base.
Curved, muscular, and expressive body which is seemingly shaped by the wind. Inlets, ducting, and vents are features of the exterior design that help reinforce its track–ready nature with elements of purposeful airflow management.

There's a retractable rear wing that at higher speeds, it deploys and tilt forward to provide you with additional downforce. Aggressive body is expressed with taut surfaces and dramatic fender forms to attract eyes when covered in red hue.
The front engine rear-wheel drive configuration is located at the cockpit far rearward within wheel base, this way, it will improve weight distribution equally. The design elements also consider classic sportscar proportion, something that you can expect from a vehicle designed to dominate the road. Unfortunately, there are no technical specifications for this concept just yet.

The ultra-lightweight mosquito helicopter concept has been designed for army to commute through difficult terrains like canyons, forests and even caves. This flying object is empowered with four GEMINI technology based powerful electric motor and contains carbon nanotube super-capacitors that provides the energy to run the motors. When the pilot triggers the helicopter, the integrated computer controls the stability and levitation of the helicopter and to rotate it left, right, backward, forward, up and down, the driver has to lever his both hands to shift the helicopter in the preferred direction. However, the concept is not able to generate a high speed, but its silent operation and excellent steering capability can make it a very functional. In case of any danger, the computer will activate the emergency landing program automatically.
