The MYBUS concept is a creation of Portuguese designer
Nuno Teixeira. The MYBUS concept won the "Outstanding
Design Award" in the 2007 Michelin Challenge Design
displayed at the 2007 Detroit Motor Show.
The MYBUS concept is a proposal for a passenger vehicle
with an emphasis on safety, for both passengers, pedestrians
and other road users. Electronic stability systems, smart
cruise control, brake-by-wire, rear detection systems,
smart wing mirrors, and Michelin Twell tires
are all features of the MYBUS concept.
The use of an electrical power source was chosen for the
MYBUS to reduce the impact on the environment, and the
danger of an explosion in case of an accident.
Power is provided by batteries placed above the rear wheels,
away from the most obvious impact zones. In order to improve
safety, each wheel has its own independent motor, so that
the onboard computer can determine the ideal power to
supply them. The system reacts according to the road conditions
and the type of driving, it also helps anticipate and
react to an imminent accident situation.
