Robots are here to kill us. Or at least that seems to be the underlying tone of most reporting and editorializing surrounding technology today. Honda is hoping to try change that tune with concepts like their new 3E-D18 Smart ATV.
Boasting an all electric four-wheel drive and airless tires, the 3E-D18 is essentially a rugged platform built to be utilized in rough-and-tumble contexts. Using artificial intelligence and Honda’s tried and true ATV chassis, the platform can do things like move heavy equipment long distances, deliver assistance to those in need, or just help folks get around. More specifically, the 3E-D18 is intended to be used by search and rescue services, construction companies, farms, and even fire fighters. Who knows, if Honda brings something like this to market it could even save lives.
