Title: Future Rider Submission Video

Duration: 0:58 seconds

Meet AVIC, a car from the future.

He was developed to eliminate any problems

a human faces on a daily basis.

The car body system is designed

to increase downforce grip

and achieve the most aerodynamic shape.

Most of his parts are made

of Carbon-Kevlar composite monocoque

to minimize weight and increase strength.

The tires are airless making it safer

since no air pressure is used

and decrease rubber consumption.

You might have noticed

the car was referred to as a 'he'.

It was actually intentional

because AVIC's super intelligence

allows him to understand

any spoken language

uploaded on this database.

So he isn't only able to study

the personality of the driver,

but also connects to your smart home system

and monitors different home

appliances and systems.

He can also detect the user's voice

so it won't operate for other drivers

unless he says the password

set by the car owner.

The car automatically activates

self-driving mode

and heads towards the nearest hospital

in case of any changes

in the driver's vitals.
