The story and milestones
from research to market maturity
A research team at the Zurich University of Applied Science, led by Adrian Burri and Hans-Jörg Dennig, initiated work with a new vision for an innovative individual eco-friendly mobility solution. The first output of the research project was the visionary study concept BICAR. Also called the "golden eye", BICAR represented a new way of design and driving experience for short distances. It was presented at numerous fairs worldwide to start the discussion about a new way of mobility in cities.
