The ‘KWID concept’ has a built-in drone quadcopter which helps in checking out the traffic up ahead from the comfort of the driver’s seat.
At the Delhi auto show, this mind-blowing piece of technology amazed everyone. The flying companion can be operated in two different modes- the automatic mode with the help of pre-programmed flying sequence and the GPS coordinates that can control the copter with the help of the tablet inside the vehicle.
