Avoidance system ( proximity sensors)

0 comments

 

I never drove a three wheel vehicle.. nor a vehicle with some of this beautiful aerodynamic street dress.

It looks like Aptera has designed large glass windows around the vehicle for maximum visibility. but all vehicles have some blind spots. Video mirrors will help too.

So I was just wonder if the autopilot technology will include proximity sensors to warn of objects, protecting some of these areas with arrows(?)

  • I am curious if this AWD three-wheel (w/ electric motor in each wheel) vehicle with low resistant tires, which only has a curb weight of ~1800, with an impressive acceleration for 0-60 mph(!)... will wear tires quickly? (The old Aptera 2e had P165/65R14 tires (brand?) .. but not sure what is planned for the new Aptera) I am not sure we have a forum members with a light three vehicle (same tadpole configuration design), AWD (?) , low roll resistant tire experience...to share their tire wear experiences. We know...  Driving Patterns  – Certain driving maneuvers also quickly wear your tires down. Some of these maneuvers include: Spinning your tires Hard braking Gast acceleration Driving at fast speeds So if you do a lot of city driving, avoid slamming on the accelerator or the brakes as you make your way through town. If you do, you’ll be buying a new set of tires before you know it. I digress....Not a good comparison...but this memory brought  up the subject.... I remember my wife’s past Mercedes Benz sports coupe going through tires frequently. I kept up on the tires’ air pressure, alignment and rotation. That car hugged the road, with the sport suspension.  * “Little Old Lady from Pasadena”?😁. Well she put on the miles with only MB performed regular maintenance.Her daily commute was interstate diving at 65 mph and I am sure she ever exceeded that speed😇.I had summer tires and winter snow tires for the vehicle and tried different high end tires but it seemed I replaced them more frequently. This was a much different animal, compared to the Aptera. Four wheels,  a RWD vehicle . Automatic.  (3400 #)   * “Put an “Aptera” in your garage Hon-ey!”
  • Is the rear view mirror a mirror, camera display (like the chevy bolt) or both? Cant see side mirrors on any of the images. Are those cameras too? The little side displays inside seem to imply it.
  • So we are seeing evolving photos of what I hope is the final production vehicle. So besides the No Charge option.. where is the receptacle to plug it in, to power her up❓ Could it be wireless (induction) charging?
