LIGHTWEIGHT EXPERIMENTAL VEHICLE

Gaius created this ultra-lightweight(200kg) urban concept car in 2013, the main intention was to showcase the core technology of Gaius. With the relationship of Royal Dutch Shell, this vehicle gained international visibility and converted to an autonomous vehicle.

Main feature:

  • Autonomous Drive ready
  • Aluminum honeycomb chassis
  • CFRP bodywork
  • Vehicle category: L7e

GAIUS AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE GEN 1

Based on one of the light weight urban concept car, additional hardware such as sensors and vision cameras are integrated into the body and connected to the vehicle’s computing center, with software developed by Oxbotica, the system allows the vehicle to “see” the road and the environment.

GAIUS AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE GEN 2

Built within 3 month, the construction of this vehicle requires tremendous amount of professional knowledge and experience. A donor vehicle from Renault was heavily modified and the package was completely redesigned to meet vehicle regulation and accommodate extra batteries and onboard computer.
