I’ve talked about driverless, autonomous cars before. Specifically raising the question “are driverless cars drones?” Now the line has gotten even fuzzier thanks to the Rinspeed Σtos. The Rinspeed Σtos is a sports car, with both autonomous and piloted driving modes, that features it’s own drone and drone landing pad. Just like the quadruped/quadcopter combination, the Σtos and drone are tightly coupled. If you are planning on checking out CES 2016, then be sure to stop by the Rinspeed booth where you will be able to see the Rinspeed Σtos in person.
The next CES doesn’t kick off in Las Vegas until January 2016, but the hype train is already leaving the station — with or without a driver. The first CES-bound concept to appear is the Rinspeed Σtos, a sports car that features both autonomous and piloted driving modes. And it has its own personal drone, too.
What is new is the drone included with the Σtos. With a landing pad built into the car’s rear end, the quadcopter is designed to accomplish tasks that will both save the owner from additional hassles and enhance the overall driving experience. Rinspeed mentions the drone fetching flowers for the driver to avoid an extra trip and acting as a live action cam for showing off your back-road driving skills.
