Video game POISTO (FInnish word for elimination, removal) takes well familiar thrilling experiences of racing and drifting to even more exiting and strategic level. The game is based on elimination principal. Vehicle which runs out of electric power is eliminated from the race.
to enhance excitement, vehicle is undress to only most important parts, which provides power, downforce and are aerodynamically fit

ITS A RACE DAY
Today we meet at the endurance race. Drivers will be provided with a fully charged battery and as the race advances more power can be gain while drifting on dedicated bridges. Watch out for EMP gates, you drive through an activated one and your battery will be shut down! Good luck!
ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE GATES When gates atcivates, driving through it shuts down the batteries eliminating driver from the race. 75%

What if you buy your car as blank canvas, which changes and evolves according to places you go?
Precision based brand In the future difference between brands will play even more significant role. In this competition Audi has strong and successful assets such as precision, progressiveness and sophistication.
Bold and machine alike design is successful now, but research shows people care of cars less and less. Will Audi sustain its strength? As people care less of product how can we make car ownership more of adventure or experience?

Q3 FACELIFT 3 weeks project
This project was an exercise of what automotive designers
First generation AudiDeveloping Q3 facelift. new This DRG project was orientedcurrent to often do at work. and updating refresh existing car model by changing only certain parts of the brand models. vehicle. Directions for change were defined by studying brand and benchmarking competitor products.
IDENTIFYING CHANGES Lacks emotion - looks bored vertical grill blades visually increases front mask height, more dynamic looks can be achieved by horizontal detailing
Tailights could relate more to headlights
Horizontal detailing visually stretches headlights
Front and rear of the vehicle features horizontal surface and detail treatment to enhance wide and sleek looks.
ADVANCE MOVING SPACES
This project suggested to explore what interior in the future will offer, where advance technologies, materials and changing human behavior will play an important role
OPPORTUNITY Autonomous vehicles are inevitable. How can we make transition between driven and undriven vehicles safer, more exciting and more intuitive?
SHARING CONTROLS PERSONAL SPACE
Were between 23-30 years old.
Trust self-driving car
Reason not to drive mentions opportunity to relax.
Prefers car over any other mean of transportation
Long distance travelling and tireness are the main reasons to give controls to the car. Most common apps people use are related to texting, video chatting and exporing places though maps
Driving pleasure is key element of owning a vehicle. Car must be functional. Spare moments people use for reading, surfing internet or resting. Research was carried to identify real needs of car owners.
Intervied people became very emotional once asked about best memory related to their car. 4 out of 6 mentioned perfect driving road.
Autonomous cars in the future will be able to deliver extreme comfort which will be enabled by the freedom of interior architecture.
Siluet of dropping Kimono inspired seat construction.
Large armrest area enables ergonomic seating.
Folded + solid seat aesthetic
During manual driving armrest rotates inside to support hips and keep driver safely inside the seat.
Cooling unit for armpits and waist area
Exploration of origami aesthetic.
Interior conveys calm, dreamy environment where passenger could fully relax or concentrate to work.
Floors are faceted and inclined towards the centre to embrace driving oriented environment
Explorations of comfortable, leaning back sitting solution which enables passenger to rest as well as provides safety.
Shaped central track enables any of the seats to move forwards and to take driving position.
Frontal cargo area enables passengers to access their bags easily at any time of the trip.
In autonomous mode dashboard is flushed with steering wheel.
Driving oriented vehicle layout.
This project explores new possibilities which autonomous driving will bring in the future. Project challenges existing vehicle architecture to provide uncompromised luxury experience.
Project purpose was to translate lightness and fusion to communicate elegance and convey a feeling of freedom.
STRUCTURE + SOFT Interior idea is based of comfort, elegance and structure which is translated by soft material wrapped around seat construction. This united seating unit expands and shrinks to enable dynamic use of the interior.
Interior makes you feel as you have not left the bed yet.
Expecting that untill year 2025, Mercedes will release two generations of CLS it is reasonable to say that upcoming generation will be partly autonomous. In this scenario, the one to fallow will be fully autonomous, enabling owners to enjoy luxury on yet another level.
