According tomedia reports, Porsche is currently focusing on the electric and intelligent research of cars. Porsche recently applied for a patented patent for an adjustable roof, and it also stressed that it improves ride comfort in self-driving mode. According to the patent content, its main point is to adjust the interior space by adjusting the shape of the roof, so that the driver enjoy serifies a more comfortable environment.
The roof is made of hard top, which also puts forward new requirements for the layout of the roof and the adjustment process in the patent. Furthermore, from the relatively limited space size of the roof position, the roof size is further increased, and some roofs need to be overlapped before being expanded, the patent can also be described as a folding screen in the automotive industry.
However, this is not the first time Porsche has made a case in the shape of a car. Previously, Porsche also introduced a seat-related patent. The seat automatically changes shape depending on the operating condition of the vehicle to meet the driver’s ride needs in different scenarios.
In addition, the steering wheel and foot pedals can be freely retracted and adapted as the seat pattern changes, providing a better ride for the occupants. In addition, the feature can meet the functional requirements of the L4-class self-driving vehicle.
Although Porsche’s concept of building a car is “more manoeuvrable”, it is different from Tesla’s idea of making a driverless car. But the car market has gradually shifted to electric, intelligent, driverless aspects. In order to maintain the competitiveness of future models, Porsche has also begun to actively move towards electric intelligence.
Earlier this year, Porsche also issued a joint statement with Boeing to develop a flying taxi that will enable vertical take-off and landing to support future urban mobility solutions.
