Two suitcases will be available in 2018 for travelers who want to make their way through an airport as conveniently as possible. The Forwardx CX-1 is a self-driving suitcase that can automatically follow its owner and avoid any obstacles that may appear on its path. The Modobag suitcase also has an electric motor that enables it to roll along long corridors, but it lets the owner sit on it and ride the suitcase to the gate.
Everyone who has been on a road trip in Germany has experienced autobahns where the only speed limit is the driver’s belief in his or her driving skills. In a Bavarian small town of Bad Birnach, however, the new shuttle bus has a speed limit of 15 kmh / 9 mph. The reason is that the small bus is fully autonomous, driven by a computer.
