A concept design for a new taxi was unveiled at the New York Motor show this week, will it or something similar hit the streets? Who knows but the designers said that they set out to solve communication problems between driver and passenger.
He said they did that by eliminating the need for driver and passenger to talk to each other. Their taxi has a computer screen in the passenger compartment. The passenger types in the destination. A screen in the driver’s compartment relays the information to the driver.
No, he said, the partition separating the two compartments is not bullet-proof.
