(Excerpt) Interview with Dmitry Pogorelov : Frank Scott: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?. Dmitry Pogorelov : I would like to revise the car, the vision of its place in the modern world. The car was no longer a means of transportation, it is a luxury. Comfort was to prevail over the function of movement: downtime in traffic jams have become the norm and people are care about on how comfortable they will feel at this time. People already do not care how fast they get to the house. In fact, sometimes faster to get by public transport. That's why I wondered, is it possible to make the car as a means of transportation more efficient? But what I thought should be in the system and the system should be controlled by the super-system, ie supercomputer, which should be responsible for all the life-support system. In my project, I do restore the original idea of the car as a means of transportation and increase its efficiency by rethinking of values and use it in everyday life by 100%. The design of cars ceased to be a design. Design in a modern automobile serves as a stylistic rather than functional, as it was originally intended. Efficiency of designer sank. The aim was to make the most simplest, clear intuitive vehicle without unnecessary and frivolous lines, as is done now BMW, Mercedes, Citroen and all other automakers seeking to get monetary gain, but not to solve global problems. So, I created a service vehicle for resource based economy developed Jacque Fresco, forming a network with other vehicles. A single system allows to communicate with each other, which increases the efficiency of passengers transportation, as well as an increase in efficiency due to the movement in the road train (reducing of FX factor, the distance between vehicles). The car has unmanned control. Vehicle is symmetrically: cheap to produce. It has a four swivel motor-wheels, and the possibility of reversing motion: maneuver with large dimensions. Boarding vis-a-vis improves communication of passengers. .Frank Scott: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?. Dmitry Pogorelov : First of all it was necessary to achieve the efficiency of the car's design in its direct functionality and frequency of use. No nonsense, no contrived lines. All items are extremely functional. I always wondered why I do it. Then you had to do it in a system, so it was necessary to devise a system connections and interactions. It should be to make it cheap; because of it does not have the driver and it is robotic, so it makes no difference in which way to move. Symmetrical car perfectly suit to reduce the cost of production, as well as maneuverability. Boarding “vis-à-vis” improves communication of passengers. Vehicles are combined into a single system, so they can communicate with each other, that increases the efficiency of transport of passengers, as well as an increase in efficiency due to the movement in the road train (reducing of FX coefficient, the distance between vehicles). .Frank Scott: What are your future plans for this award winning design?. Dmitry Pogorelov : This project was as workout for my mind. In general, this project was made for my ideal world. Like any my projects, the project Servvan is my face and show my abilities as a designer. If it is possible in the future to implement this project, it will likely have a slightly different design more advanced because with changing technologies design approach is also change. Yes, it's a good project for my future. .Frank Scott: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?. Dmitry Pogorelov : Oh, it was quite hard. This project lasted for about 5 months. It is very difficult to immediately understand what is required. But as the closer was the finale, the picture becomes clearer. .Frank Scott: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?. Dmitry Pogorelov : It likely was the inspiration and desire to embody my thoughts in life. The project started in the academy, but I didn’t find support from teachers. They are too conservative and they want all of the projects were for nowadays. I looked forward to 20-30 years. Yes, the task sounded like "service vehicle for the government." I consider myself a person of the planet Earth and would not want to play in political games, then I had a project.[ End of Excerpt: Read complete interview with Dmitry Pogorelov on Servvan Robotic Vehicle at ]
