Detroit e Las Vegas, USA. Dicembre 2016. Potete contare sulle idee del visionario automobilistico svizzero quando si tratta di rivisitazione della mobilità.

Rinspeed, con il concept Oasis, il geniale veicolo elettrico a guida autonoma da città e zone circostanti, rifiuta la nozione profondamente radicata della giungla urbana che richiede i SUV da dimensione di carri armati per la lotta quotidiana per la sopravvivenza. Il suo concetto alternativo è quello di una speedster maneggevole con una trama da piccolo giardino integrato dietro il parabrezza.

Il boss Rinspeed sfida quindi l’aspetto marziale con il giardinaggio urbano mobile. Con le sue ampie superfici vetrate e le protezioni sulle ruote anteriori, il raffinato e rapido runabout due posti sembra piuttosto futuristico ed è un pò ricorda una moderna interpretazione della famosa icona di Star Wars R2D2. Entrambi possono accendere le loro ruote con quasi un raggio pari a zero.

Nel caso della “Oasis”, grazie ad un angolo di sterzata speciale, due motori elettrici sulle ruote ed il sistema torque vectoring, tutto sviluppato da ZF sul Lago di Costanza.

Il veicolo svizzero a guida autonoma non è un wallflower o strettamente funzionale come la Google Car, ma piuttosto un “next gen” – con una serie di tratti tecnici e visivi all’interno. Perché in linea con una grande tradizione, il ventitreesimo concept car Rinspeed è stato nuovamente progettato dalla società svizzera 4erC ed eseguito da Esoro.

Parlando dagli interni, troviamo che l’ultimo eye-catcher è il piccolo giardino con spazio sufficiente per la coltivazione e la crescita dei ravanelli o anche piccoli alberi bonsai. Il fornitore Automotive Kostal aggiunge l’elemento della natura alla macchina per renderlo un vero terzo spazio. “Home + giardino” diventa “Auto + Garden” – ha riunito una fioriera rimovibile personalizzata.

La trama del piccolo giardino è solo una delle caratteristiche che crea un nuovo spazio di vita all’interno della vettura. Poltrone, credenza e TV offrono un ambiente moderno come un salotto luminoso. Tutto sembra accogliente e invitante, grazie agli sforzi degli sviluppatori Strähle + Hess con innovativi tessili, e la società olandese Stahl, leader mondiale nelle superfici in pelle e sintetici da interni auto. Insieme, hanno creato un notevole insieme naturale, la pelle funzionale con vari disegni e superfici accompagnati da tessuti con riflessi luminosi nella bordatura. A tal fine, Schoeller Spinning Group ha fornito un nuovissimo filato altamente elastico di lana. Degno di nota sono le eleganti basi del sedile in alluminio da GF Automotive nel design bionico leggero, le futuristiche prese d’aria a scomparsa, e la scatola di immagazzinaggio multiuso da Dr. Schneider Unternehmensgruppe. Il pavimento è realizzato in vero legno, e creato dagli specialisti di MeisterWerke. Tutti gli adesivi posti sul “Oasis” sono realizzati con adesivi innovativi da Sika Automotive.

Sempre un passo avanti: Nella “Oasis”, il viaggio diventa il traguardo

C’è una calma irreale intorno all’arena di calcio, ma le attività su Twitter continuano con lo spettacolo: il tempo è quasi scaduto e decine di migliaia di fan invaderanno presto le strade. La Rinspeed “Oasis” è dotata di tecnologie Harman Livs (soluzioni intelligenti per il miglioramento della qualità della vita nel veicolo), che sono sempre un passo avanti oltre la presenza sul polso del web sociale, con il quale “Oasis” ha da tempo pianificato il percorso alternativo .

“Oasis” fa sapere al suo conducente che diversi amici di Facebook con gusti simili hanno recentemente voluto un nuovo ristorante che appena è aperto nelle vicinanze. Un rapido ‘Ok’ segnalato per l’assistente personale della “Oasis” e la tavola è stata riservata. Tutto in modo così veloce.

Per interagire con il sistema Harman, gli occupanti utilizzano un display leggermente curvo 5K widescreen con voice – o un sistema controllo gesti che attraversa la larghezza della “Oasis” davanti ai suoi passeggeri. In modalità manuale, presenta le informazioni più importanti in forma sintetica. Le immagini degli specchi retrovisori elettronici sono in grigio quando non serve.

Il volante ZF a pieghe piatte, quindi, si trasforma in una superficie della tastiera o di lavoro. L’auto diventa così un ufficio di auto pilota su ruote, completo di software di produttività dell’ufficio e telefonia Skype video con traduzione dal vivo. L’assistente personale non solo sa che degli occupanti stanno parlando in quel momento, ma anche in che lingua parla l’occupante. I passeggeri “Oasis” sono in grado di scambiare e condividere notizie interessanti sui canali di social media utilizzando gesti. In linea con una tradizione decennale, un orologio meccanico Carl F. Bucherer è integrato sul piantone dello sterzo.

Che cosa c’è più: sulla “Oasis”, la nuova Manero Flyback viene riavvolto dai movimenti dello sterzo.

Il prossimo viaggio di lavoro inizia. Dopo aver lasciato il suo proprietario all’aeroporto, gli autisti della “Oasis” una bella coppia che aveva cercato un giro su Facebook in città. Dopo aver lasciato loro a destinazione, la “Oasis” va su Twitter per consentire agli amici dei proprietari di sapere che è disponibile per l’utilizzo in qualsiasi momento.

Essi sono in grado di evocare tramite WhatsApp e altre applicazioni di social media. Due giorni dopo, la “Oasis” torna al terminal degli arrivi dell’aeroporto, grazie alla Harman LIVS, puntuale al minuto e imperturbata dai potenziali ritardi dei voli, dagli ingorghi e dalle lunghe code al ritiro bagagli.

Prevede l’intrattenimento serale con la visualizzazione di divertimento in CinemaScope, accompagnato dal suono a 24 canali Harman Kardon che segue praticamente il passeggero quando le sede scivolano nella posizione completamente reclinata. L’assistente personale prende una foto del tramonto mozzafiato di passaggio – “Oasis” tiene un diario e se lo si desidera anche agisce come un blogger di viaggio per mantenere i seguaci di Instagram.

Garden plot on wheels for the urban jungle

December 2016, You can count on Swiss automotive visionary Frank M. Rinderknecht when it comes to reimagining mobility. With the Rinspeed concept vehicle “Oasis,” the ingenious self-driving electric vehicle for the city and surrounding areas, he refutes the deeply ingrained notion of the urban jungle that requires SUVs the size of battle tanks for the daily struggle for survival. His alternative concept: a maneuverable speedster with an integrated small garden plot behind the windshield.

The Rinspeed boss therefore challenges the martial appearance with mobile urban gardening. With its large glazed areas and shrouds on the front wheels, the refined and swift two-seat runabout looks rather futuristic and is somewhat reminiscent of a modern interpretation of famous Star Wars icon R2D2. They both can turn on their wheels with almost a zero radius. In the case of the “Oasis,” thanks to a special steering angle, two in-wheel electric motors and torque vectoring, all developed by ZF on Lake Constance.

The self-driving Swiss vehicle is not a wallflower or strictly functional like the Google Car, but rather “next gen” – with a host of technical and visual treats inside. Because in keeping with a great tradition, the twenty-third Rinspeed concept car was again engineered by Swiss company 4erC and executed by Esoro.

Speaking of inside: The ultimate eye-catcher is the small garden with enough space for growing radishes or even little Bonsai trees. Automotive supplier Kostal adds the element of nature to the car to make it a true third space. “Home+Garden” becomes “Car+Garden” – brought together by a custom removable planter.

The small garden plot is just one of features that creates a new living space in the interior of the car. Armchairs, sideboard and TV provide a modern living room ambience in white. Everything looks welcoming and inviting, thanks to the efforts of the innovative Swabian textile developers at Strähle+Hess, and Dutch company Stahl, the world market leader in leather and synthetic surfaces in automotive interiors. Together, they created a remarkable ensemble of natural, functional leather with various designs and surfaces complemented by textiles with bright edging highlights. For this purpose, Schoeller Spinning Group supplied an all-new highly elastic wool yarn. Also worthy of note are the elegant aluminum seat bases from GF Automotive in bionic lightweight design, the futuristic retractable air vents, and the multi-purpose storage box from Dr. Schneider Unternehmensgruppe. The floor is made from real wood, and created by the specialists from MeisterWerke. All adhesive bonds in and on the “Oasis” are realized with innovative adhesives from Sika Automotive.

Always a step ahead: In the “Oasis,” the journey becomes the destination

An eerie quiet around the football arena, but the activities on Twitter show: Injury time is almost up and tens of thousands of fans will soon flood the streets. The Rinspeed “Oasis” is equipped with Harman LIVS technologies (Life-Enhancing Intelligent Vehicle Solutions), which put it always a step ahead, and its finger on the pulse of the social web – the “Oasis” has long since planned the alternative route.

The “Oasis” lets its driver know that several Facebook friends with similar tastes have recently liked a new restaurant that just opened nearby. A quick ‘Ok’ signaled to the personal assistant of the “Oasis,” and the table has been reserved. That fast.

To interact with the Harman system, the occupants use a slightly curved 5K widescreen display with voice- or gesture-control that spans the width of the “Oasis” in front of its passengers. In manual mode, it presents the most important information in condensed form. The images of the electronic rearview mirrors are dimmed when not needed.

The steering wheel from ZF folds flat and thus turns into a keyboard or work surface. The car thus becomes a self-driving office on wheels, complete with Office productivity software and Skype video telephony with live translation. The personal assistant not only knows which of the occupants is talking to it at the time, but also in what language the occupant speaks. The “Oasis” passengers are able to exchange and share interesting news on social media channels by using swiping gestures. In keeping with a ten-year tradition, a mechanical Carl F. Bucherer watch is integrated on the steering column. What is more: On the “Oasis,” the new Manero Flyback is rewound by the steering motions.

The next business trip begs. After dropping its owner off at the airport, the “Oasis” chauffeurs a nice couple who had searched for a ride on Facebook into the city. After dropping them off at their destination, the “Oasis” goes on Twitter to let the owners’ friends know that it is available for use at any time. They are able to summon it via WhatsApp and other social media apps. Two days later, the “Oasis” returns to the arrivals terminal of the airport, thanks to Harman LIVS punctual to the minute and unperturbed by potential flight delays, traffic jams and long lines at the baggage claim.

Curtains up for the evening entertainment with viewing enjoyment in CinemaScope, accompanied by the Harman Kardon 24-channel sound that virtually follows the passenger as the seat glides into the fully reclined position. The personal assistant takes a photo of the stunning sunset in passing – the “Oasis” keeps a diary and if desired also acts as a travel blogger to keep the Instagram followers up to date.

Feeling like taking back the wheel? Gladly – after passing an automatically administered fitness and alertness test.

By the way, the personal assistant is also at the driver’s disposal outside the car. Thanks to a link to the Harman Ignite Cloud Platform, it allows controlling the owner’s smart home from the “Oasis,” for example. Always a step ahead, it takes care of the lights and the wellness climate as the situation demands. BlackBerry QNX supplies an integrated and certified secure and protected software platform for self-driving vehicles.

The windscreen serves as a giant display for virtual and augmented realities. Holographic laser projection technology developed by WayRay allowed to make area covered by displays significantly larger than in conventional head-up display used today. US Company Techniplas, a specialist for cognitive and networked products, developed the multi-functional rear window. It integrates not only the usual lights at the back of a car; it also serves as a display panel for the integrated clever micro delivery box. It can even be cooled or heated as needed. As a special touch, the box was sized to fit a power bank form EVA Fahrzeugtechnik, which increases the range of the “Oasis” when circumstances demand.

When it comes to automotive lighting, Rinspeed relies on proven Osram quality. The manufacturer supplies the powerful LED headlights and the two projectors in the front surround. The LED ambience lighting with reading lights integrated into the headliner comes from Forster Rohner.

The who’s who in the use of the vehicle

Who will own the car, who will operate it and what will it be used for? Rinspeed boss Rinderknecht has designed and equipped the car to keep all conceivable options open – if society is willing to share goods in a beneficial way. “Oasis” can be a shopping cart in the morning, a shipping services counter for a parcel service in the afternoon, and a pizza delivery vehicle at night. A digital access system from German supplier Huf makes it possible.

Apart from consulting firm EY, which contributed a study on the individualization of mobility, the masterminds behind the “Oasis” also include TOG-Tübitak. The Turkish research center – an institution not unlike the German Fraunhofer Institute – examines issues of tomorrow’s transport in its own mobility lab.

However, even the “Oasis” does need a dash of masculinity: Futuristic 20-inch Borbet Aero Design rims with laser-engraved “Oasis” logo underscore the vehicle dynamics.

Transmitting large volumes of data and information requires perfect connections and consequently is of fundamental importance for autonomous driving in particular. The intelligent antenna systems from Vites integrated into the roof play a crucial role in this regard.

Intelligent traffic management solutions from Siemens help optimize the traffic flow and thereby are a factor in providing more comfort in traveling, minimizing emissions, and enhancing the safety of all road users – for example, by warning road users of an approaching emergency vehicle. The “Oasis” uses different sensors based on NXP technology to capture a 360-degree view of its surroundings with pinpoint precision. Thanks to vehicle-to-vehicle communication, it can even look around corners and obstacles. This sensor fusion is then used to compute the safe driving maneuver.

An innovative app from MHP allows choosing potential passengers by interest or profession. For passionate car enthusiasts who just met, this can make the long drive to the vintage car event a sheer pleasure. The “Mini Mica” from connectivity specialist Harting is a scalable and flexible computing architecture, which uses different modules for adapting the “Oasis” to the particular requirements of the vehicle user, and installs the corresponding technology features. This makes an individualization of the “Oasis fleet” with efficient use of resources possible. The secure transmission of data and information was tested and certified by independent and impartial certification specialist Dekra. Axa Winterthur provides insurance and peace of mind if the unthinkable happens.

Urban gardening on wheels as a new trend? A little bit out there? Maybe. But as always, the creation of Swiss mobility innovator Frank M. Rinderknecht is an oasis for inspiration in the otherwise rather expansive automotive wasteland. On display at the CES in Las Vegas and the NAIAS in Detroit in January 2017, and in spring 2017 – in a manner of speaking, in the Swiss national own front garden – at the Geneva Motor Show. As always, put in the best light by Vollmond Advertising Agency from Saarland, Germany.

The „Oasis“ will be exhibited at the in the Hard Rock Hotel in the Harman Venue from January 4th thru 7th, 2017 and from January 9th thru 22nd, 2017 at the NAIAS in Detroit in the ZF booth. ​
