An ultra-flexible micro car

In the big cities looking for a parking space is quite hard to come by especially in the rush hour, was used despite the cramped quarters with difficulty. However the German engineers have an innovative solution, a small electric car that can be changed in place, shrink and even move sideways like a crab, so it also can park itself.
The EOssc2 concept is a car has a top speed of 40mph (65 km/h) and its semi-autonomous features are possible because of inbuilt cameras and a LIDAR sensor on its roof, which lets the vehicle scan its environment and locate itself in it, 10 times a second. The EOssc2 is currently being tested in the cities of Bremen and Dalian, China. (Picture from: http://dailym.ai/1PQSoss)
The micro car named 'EOssc2' and described as ultra flexible micro car to the big city and is designed to be interconnected to form trains. The crabs have a wide flat body to make it easier to shrink into a small space and so does the EOssc2 work at the same way.
Its unusual design also features a forward tilt and doors that open like the DeLorean in Back to the Future (pictured). Currently, the two-seater vehicle can be driven in the traditional way, diagonally and sideways. It pivots using wheels powered by separate motors and shrinks from 8 ft (2.5 metres) to 5 ft (1.5 metres). (Picture from: http://dailym.ai/1PQSoss)
As reported by the Daily Mail on Monday, April 27, 2015, EOssc2 has the wheels that can maneuver to mimics the crab movement. The unusual design is also featured a forward tilt and door open like the famous DeLorean car from the "Back to the Future" movie.
This micro car made by the DFKI Robotics Centre in Bremen, Germany and the vehicle concept is intended to be semi-autonomous. Car computer and auto-navigation system allows the vehicle to park itself, even in narrow and congested streets. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DFKI ROBOTIC CENTRE | DAILYMAIL]
