Pininfarina in London also marks the world debut of the innovative system of urban public transport Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) developed in collaboration with Vectus, Korean company, leader in urban mobility solutions. Vectus concept is based on a system of small, light and driverless vehicles, efficiently navigating on a network of interconnecting tracks. It is an on-demand service: the passengers are carried from one point to another on demand, without intermittent stops, optimizing travel time. A 1:18 scale model of the vehicle will be on display at the exhibition. A special area of the exhibition is dedicated to young people: to coincide with PININFARINA IN LONDON, the prestigious Royal College of Art has launched a design contest among its students, to celebrate the cultural value of creativity and innovation while London gets set to host the Olympic Games. Last February students were invited to submit a design proposal that could enhance London’s reputation as a world capital of creativity and contribute to the social and economic wellbeing of its citizens and guests. Ideas for products, services, experiences, communications and environments have all been considered. Entries had to refer explicitly to at least one of the key themes of the London 2012 Olympics: culture, employment and skills; accessibility and equality; health, safety and security; legacy; sustainability. The jury, chaired by Paolo Pininfarina, selected the finalists, whose work will be exhibited in a room at the Italian Cultural Institute.
