Rinspeed MicroMAX Swarm Cars Debut at Geneva Motor Show 2013

Rinspeed takes a page from Frank Schaetzing's novel The Swarm and invents the networked swarm car concept on display at the Geneva Motor Show 2013 . With microMAX Frank M. Rinderknecht, boss of Swiss Rinspeed, transfers the idea of swarm intelligence to urban traffic and sets out to do nothing less than to revolutionize it.

The commuter vehicle merges personal and public transportation. In the Rinspeed microMAX, automotive multimedia and infotainment systems maker Harman for the first time introduces its vision of an urbanSWARM community concept based on the Harman Cloud platform. This concept involves combining the company’s individual technical features that are already available commercially today with a comprehensive Cloud-based mobility concept. This allows, for instance, easy access to navigation functions in real time. Based on the information from all vehicles connected to the swarm, the system can modify the routes dynamically to account for current traffic.

Rinderknecht says: “We have developed an intelligent and eco-friendly mobility concept complete with its own vehicle that combines the benefits of personal transportation with those of taxis, car-sharing services and carpool concepts as well as those offered by public transit. It uses the powerful UMTS and LTE data networks in urban centers and operates in real time.”
