Next is an advanced smart transportation system based on swarms of modular electric vehicles,
Each module can join and detach with other modules on standard city roads.
When joined, they create an open, bus-like area among modules, allowing passengers to stand and walk from one module to another.

modularity is applicable right now with immediate benefits before self-driving will become legal.
- Just one bus driver for up to 80 passengers
- From 15% to 75% less energy consumption
- Virtually no charging off-time
- Repurposable Idle Vehicles for car-sharing, logistics and services
Passengers can redistribute in motion between joined pods, optimizing the cost by more than 50%
Here a video of the pilot projects in Padua done with our previous generation prototypes
- Faster & Cheaper Delivery
- Less Static Warehouses
- Less Infrastructure Costs
NExT Logistics is designed to be customizable and scalable for a wide range of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) applications.
NExT modular system benefits are backed by extensive independent academic research and active collaborations
"60% reduction in distance traveled by the fleet to move the same amount of people"
"[NExT] improves the vehicle utilization rates and reduce the total cost (i.e. the total of energy cost and passenger waiting cost)"
"[NExT] system which captures the key cost and convenience benefits of AVs and SAVs while curbing excess use of individual vehicles and abandonment of public transport."

In Febraury 2018 we presented the first two fully functional vehicles in Dubai,
at the international event:
Dubai World Government Summit
We tested the vehicles in Dubai
including, not only the self-driving
capability but especially the docking
in motion, unique Next feature
