Pal, a smart travelling companion

MAY/2019

“We believe the future is autonomous and sustainable”, Benjamin Hubert from Layer


Pal is a near-future prototype for an intelligent, modular personal transport system. It embraces AI and machine learning to offer flexible and convenient “last mile” travel.


Designed by Layer for Chinese electric vehicle company Nio, it has various accessories—bag, basket and shopping cart—that can be affixed to the front of the scooter to cater to the user’s lifestyle and changing needs. A wireless Bluetooth earpiece connects to Nio’s Nomi system via the Pal app, also designed by Layer. It uses machine learning to become accustomed to a user’s routes over time and, eventually, become autonomous.


This graphene-coated carbon fibre vehicle has been designed to express lifestyle values and sensibilities, with an overtly tech-driven language, creating harmony between the ideas of transport, comfort and autonomy.
