Abstract [en]

Honda “Hermes” the intuitive driving machine


The way in to this project was with an open mind to create a new type of road vehicle, with focus on driving experience.

The result is a three wheel self balancing vehicle which is manoeuvred by intuitive steering. The product was developed out from a face down, head first body position to increase the experience of motion and freedom.

As the vehicle accelerates to higher speeds the driver position is changed to a more horizontal posture resulting in a flying sensation close to the road.

Honda Hermes is designed for people in search for new experience. The vehicle is to be used at public roads and can give extraordinary driving experience within the speed limits.
