It is not science fiction anymore: a car with an adaptive and modular design that fulfills the personal requirements of a driver better than a usual car. The EO smart connecting cars aim to solve urban traffic problems. The Robotics Innovation Center (RIC) at DFKI (Deutsches Forschungszentrum fuer Kuenstliche Intelligenz/German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence) in Bremen has shown its experience with a range of projects involving self-developed, upgraded, modular, and reconfigurable vehicle platforms in the electric mobility
field that aim to meet the needs of urban life. The EO smart connecting car (EOscc) concept vehicle family is known for its morphological adaptation and its modular construction concept for a spectrum of specific applications, which makes it a pioneer in its field.
