Description:
Serbia is the largest country in South Eastern Europe (Balkan area) with eight million people and is the largest republic of the former Yugoslavia. Serbia, according to the number of computers and internet connections may already be a member of the European Union, because it left behind not only Romania and Bulgaria, but Greece. Percentage of population using computers is constantly growing. Very young children, secondary school students and university students often have several newest smartphones or tablet computers. Young people in Serbia are already accustomed to the electronic revolution that brings us all the technical and technological progress, and facilitates our daily life.

Until the beginning of 2021, Serbia is expected that the transport of people, goods and articles to be increased tenfold. The main problem is the large number of old and dilapidated transit routes that connect major economic centers (cities).

Belgrade as the capital of Serbia has NOT built metro (subway). The lack of subway cause very large traffic jams on the streets especially in the morning and evening.

TWINWAY with its technical features such as automatic recognition of pedestrians, road signs and traffic lights, recognition of terrain topology and weather conditions, automatic braking and acceleration, help traffic moves much faster.

Automated systems of electronic communication between vehicles are in a contribution to traffic safety. Percentage of vehicle collisions would be reduced to a minimum.

All those facts are very important because TWINWAY, MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) offers the ability for command and control vehicle through smartphone or tablet computer through an innovative E-DRIVE system by manual or autonomous driving mode.

All that philosophy and lifestyle are transferred at unique command panel called “Drive By Touch” and which is made of transparent OLED touch-screen.

TWINWAY is a concept vehicle that combines the already known and new technologies in a new and innovative way and makes a cost-effective, safer and more comfortable driving in urban areas, on highways or off-roads.

Most important features, built in the TWINWAY are:

  • GPS navigation
  • Radar recognition and camera vision
  • 360 degree Radar detection of other vehicles and objects
  • LiDAR automatic detection of ground topology
  • Voice control over vehicle

All this seems to be TWINWAY is a MPV that could equally easily use in urban areas with large crowds, and also when the family wants to go on a trip into nature.

In autonomous driving mode, passengers can talk face to face, see a movie, play a computer games surf the Internet or simply enjoy the nature that can be seen through the large panoramic glass roof-top.

Innovative design of TWINWAY allows the vehicle to move in both directions (forward and backward). The vehicle has no a classic front and rear part.

This possibility is perfect when the vehicle is in the city crowd or situations where there is insufficient space on the way to turn. It is enough to give electronic command and vehicle automatically moves in the desired direction (forward or reverse).

CITY mode and OFF-ROAD mode

TWINWAY using electronically controlled system of lifting the overall body of the vehicle that can be adapted to urban driving or off-road modes. In the off-road mode, vehicle easily overcomes bumpy roads, sandy beaches and shallow waters (rivers).
