Crab – a semi-automatic electric car that can ride sideways


In modern overpopulated metropolises, parking in the middle of the working day is a big problem, even if the place is vacated. It’s not so easy to squeeze between cars standing almost right next to each other.

Semi-autonomous microelectrode EOssc2 Crab was developed by engineers of the DFKI robotics center in Bremen. Its main feature is the ability to park in a confined space, thanks to a special flat body and modern automatics. The algorithm of its movement is borrowed from crabs, perfectly moving sideways.

Complex maneuvers, including parking, Crab carries out using a computer and car navigation system. It can move straight, diagonally, unfold in place and lean forward, decreasing in overall dimensions.

The micro-car is able to connect with other “Crabs”, forming a road train. It can travel at speeds of up to 65 km / h in semi-autonomous mode with built-in cameras and LIDAR sensors mounted on the roof. In the future, the creators of EOssc2 Crab plan to create a model that does not need manual control.
