Hop into the passenger seat of a virtual rideshare

In December at its RoadTrip 2030 summit, Covestro launched its new virtual reality program. It showcases the critical role materials will play in designing autonomous vehicle interiors that cater to diverse passenger needs.
In the future, materials will play an important role in designing autonomous vehicle interiors that cater to diverse passenger needs.

Picture yourself scheduling a shared ride vehicle for your daily trip to work. Seated inside, you have a nearly 360-degree view of your surroundings, thanks to transparent polycarbonate. As passengers enter the vehicle, you can hear all the city noise. But when the doors close, sound-dampening materials ensure the cabin is quiet and calming. From floors that are stylish and easy to clean to textile coatings that keep fabrics looking good after repeated use, a variety of Covestro materials help create interiors that are functional, durable and attractive.

After a hectic work week, how about a weekend getaway to the beach? By using a subscription service, you can book a vehicle to meet a variety of weekend travel needs. The family loves the embedded infotainment functionality, made possible with polycarbonate glazing. And riders of all ages can enjoy a customized interior atmosphere due to our transparent materials and ambient lighting. For long journeys, passengers can relax knowing polycarbonates used for battery packaging can help extend electric vehicle range.

Want to see for yourself? We invite you to ride along with us in an immersive experience that transports you to the passenger seat of a virtual rideshare in the year 2030.
