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.
myCare, that won the second place, is a innovative system that allows citizens to receive directly at home – or wherever they wish within the city – medical drugs and devices.
The special mention of the jury went to Doze, a concept of an autonomous, zero-emission electric vehicle, very compact, intelligent and affordable, envisioned for the year 2030.
