”Autonomous driving in combination with digitalization is the great opportunity to effectively counter the traffic congestion.Johannes Barckmann, Head of Concept Cars EDAG Group
Just imagine that you live in a city characterised by urban living, work and experience oases. Where you can move forward at any time effortlessly without being stuck in a traffic jam. Where parking spaces and car parks have given way to community hubs and new types of meeting places. Where smog and traffic noise have become a thing of the past and urban cleaning and maintenance work is carried out autonomously in times of low traffic without being a nuisance to residents.
Do you think that such a thing does not exist except in science fiction?
EDAG CITYBOT: THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY
Thanks to its modularity and multi-functionality, the EDAG CityBot can be operated around the clock and, according to requirements, configured as a passenger cell, cargo carrier or city cleaning device by fitting add-on modules.
An intelligent alternative to individual transport, and one that makes clever use of autonomous driving for various applications in urban mobility.
fully autonomous robot vehicle with swarm intelligence
powered by an emission-free fuel cell drive
operated all around the clock due to modularity and multi-functionality
EXCERPT OF THE EDAG CITYBOT’S FUNCTIONALITIES
with an integrated sensor set for autonomous driving and working systems. It also acts as an emotional communication point for its environment, can speak, nod and make eye contact.
to serve as a robust mechanical connection with the modules. This ensures data transmission, HV power supply and optional connections with additional hydrogen tanks.
with up to 24 KW power for an economical power unit with the expected operational profile in the smart city‘s fully controlled and networked traffic.
with integrated wheel hub motors and height-adjustable chassis. This enables the EDAG CityBot to drive sideways and support the gesture functions developed by EDAG psychologists.
for the constant exchange of all data relevant to operation and the environment. Permits optimal traffic flow and resource planning, including necessary payments.
additively manufactured for maximum integration of functions and just-in-time provision in production and maintenance.
for the CityBot-specific energy requirements in 24/7 operation. Refuelling with hydrogen at smart city service stations takes just three minutes. If hydrogen is produced from regenerative energy, this leaves a very small CO2 footprint.

THE EDAG CITYBOT ECOSYSTEM
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts:
the EDAG CityBot ecosystem involves all the necessary participants in its development, implementation, operation and use. This means that it could be a game changer in the city of the future.
In conjunction with the platform technology for the Internet of Things and, for example, the digital micro-payment solutions of EDAG partner IOTA, the EDAG CityBot offers not only new, autonomous transport and working vehicles, but also possible new business models.
