ZMP RoboCar G soon to be available to researchers


You may not be able to buy Honda's sci-fi-styled 3R-C electric three-wheeler anytime soon, but it looks like you will be able to get behind the wheel of ZMP's new RoboCar G this year -- if you're a researcher interested in working on next-generation vehicles, that is. According to the company, the vehicle will be available on a limited basis starting in November, and it will be able to be equipped with a whole range of sensors that will either help the driver, or let it be operated as a computer-controlled "robot vehicle." No indication of a price, or any word of availability to the general public -- although you may just be able to talk your into getting one for yourself if you can foot the bill. Exceedingly brief video after the break.
