Coolest part? The cars would communicate with each other wirelessly to regulate speed, reduce congestion and prevent accidents. These small, nimble electric vehicles will know where other moving objects are and will avoid running into them. An internet like web will connect the vehicles so that people can move through the cities and find places to park and connect.
It'll be a dawn of a new day. As Jim Norrod, the CEO of Segway states, “We are excited to be working together to demonstrate a dramatically different approach to urban mobility. There’s an emotional connection you get when trying something made by Segway. The Project P.U.M.A. prototype embodies this completely through the combination of dynamic stabilization, seamless drive-by-wire controls, and sophisticated battery systems to complete the connection between the rider, environment, and others.” You won't see this baby hitting the road till 2012 but for now, check out Engadget's review of their joy ride.
