iMCar, The eVehicle of The Future

Updated on February 20, 2012

iPod, iPhone, iPad. What else do you expect from Apple in the future? Thinking of another high-tech handheld gadget? Why don’t you just think beyond your imagination. Let's go to our imaginary drawing table.

Step forward, ahead and think for a second of a multi powered car concept that can be specifically design to be driven on the future roads and streets by those who are already using various innovative Apple products.

Designing of the car takes all the advantages of modern models. The original design, so far, resembles a mouse like model; then as we get better, we can add overwhelming features.

FEATURES OF THE iMCAR
To start, it will have the latest technology derived from our Air Force. For instance, in order to make feasible the self drive system, it will have to adapt the GeoView–3000, which is the original GeoView spherical capture system configuration, which provides full 360x360 coverage for single pass capture of an area or indoor space.

It consists of seven digital and solar cameras in a cube configuration, each providing 90 to 180 degrees field of view. The captured video streams are combined into a seamless, prospectively, correct spherical display by iMCAR GeoViewer software package.


SELF SENSOR CAPABILITIES

The iMCAR will be equipped with a broad range of sensors, enabling them to "see" what comes ahead. The technology used on those self driven cars from early 2000 will be updated in an integrated C++ software. GPS ultra added to its Blue Tooth capabilities will make an imminent impact avoidable.

Cars are learning how to see and to recognize their ambiance: Things like forward-looking radar that recognizes obstacles in the direction of motion, or rear-view IR sensors as a parking aid, are already a reality.

THIS CAR REALLY SEES IT ALL... LITERALLY

As mentioned above, this dream car will be equipped with cameras that enable them to see—and literally recognize what they see. For instance, an image processing software connected to the camera will be able to recognize traffic signs and issue a warning accordingly—visually at the instrument panel as well as acoustically. "Our aim is teaching cars to see," said a top designer on condition of anonimity. "The ability of cars to orientate itself in the traffic with the same senses like human beings is a key to the next-generation driver assistance systems."



FUEL? ELECTRICITY? OR ELSE

Solar energy is a reality and is part of this hybrid project; sort of a back up to other means of Power.
It would appear that someone else is working on a driver less vehicle system with the Induction Powered Vehicle (IPV), which takes magnetic fields technology to its full drive. At first was designed for vehicles that couldn't afford to be stopped by traffic, but that handicap was eliminated. Lets use a simple example of how it works: It uses a magnetic track to guide the vehicle, which can be controlled by a cellular phone. 6G-Gamma technology will be required in order to comply with Government and Division of transportation regulations.
That’s right, if you get an special vehicle in the future, you might be able to just enter in your Cell, the location of your final destination and sit back and enjoy the ride. It certainly beats the heck out of a GPS. Hey!, just think of how easy FedEx and UPS drivers would have it.

MOVE FORWAR 10 YEARS..

Ion fusion will be another source of power to our model (The secret power from our Sun untamed); another back up feature is its anti gravity technology to make vertical take-off and landing available on those days when a traffic jam is unavoidable. Not to mention rain and snow. But the trend is favored by designers. iMCAR designers want the car to have the ability to automatically take off and land without a pilot while still offering a manual mode that would let the vehicle operator make flight steering commands in real time. Other desirable features are good forward and side visibility from inside the vehicle, 4-D surround sound and video will continue its improvement.

20 YEARS AHEAD

Some Engineers are customizing a gadget called Will Remote Sensor(WRS), which applies electrical stimulus through an infrared modulator attached to the side of the brain in order to keep the stream of commands 'one on one' with the Car. This feature will be a reality soon after nanotechnology and Bio engineering improve the brain-car interactivity. People with physical limitations will welcome this advance.

40 YEARS AHEAD.

Beam me up scotty! Please have it easy on your mind for today. Actually in 40 years ahead the traveling will include mind, space and time.

    Beam me up scotty! That's a generation ahead of us, but not impossible. Thanks Lathing for commenting on our iMCar.

    @Kelley, hi there! A friend of ours was working on prototypes with a funding from Carnegie Mellon University, and that was back in 97. We will be able to live up to some of our dreams. Cars can drive themselves so far, but the financial feasability is still some years ahead.

    Look at that car! That's amazing and a little scary to me. A car that drives itself etc. voted up! Kelley

    This is fascinating! I hope all this will happen in our lifetime. Why iMCar, why not Icar? I am waiting for the teleporter, can you imagine?

    Sharing, and awesome.......
