Exploring the Future Car in a World of Connected Devices
CCA + AIR Fellows Interdisciplinary Workshop
California College of the Arts + Audi Innovation Research
California College of the Arts (CCA) and the Audi Innovation Research (AIR) office launched the CCA + AIR “Beyond Mobility” Fellows Workshop -- an interdisciplinary collaboration geared toward exploring the car as a key intersection in this broader network of interconnected devices.
An elite group of CCA students from across the college's disciplines was selected as AIR Fellows for this two-week workshop.
Together they are developing ideas, visions, prototypes, and new business models that position the car as a hub in this growing ecosystem of information and devices.
Mobile technologies -- from wearables to the connected home and the smart city -- are creating a radical new design environment that extends beyond the expertise of any one discipline.
AIR Fellows are exploring the theme “Beyond Mobility” -- the spectrum of future devices and experiences from watches, to phones, to sensors, homes, cities, and beyond.
AIR Fellows are re-imagining new features, forms, interactions, and services that the car might embody in the not-too-distant future and recast new sustainable relationships the car may have with its environment.
