About the winning projects

M.A.R2E.V., meaning Modular Autonomous Rechargeable Road Electric Vehicle, is a modular, autonomous shared transportation system, that allows the vehicles to pair and travel with multiple coaches or also separately; it is specifically designed for medium-size cities.

“Analysing cities of different sizes, we noticed how the medium-sized cities are generally characterized by low public transportation modal share. We are thus imaging a different future with the M.A.R2E.V. System project, which provide to medium-sized cities an innovative solution that can improve quality of public transport and life” – Roberto Monti from the winner team, said.
