Neo Industrial Design and Your Engineer of Newcastle developed the design concept for the Concourse Golfs Smart Wheel which recently helped it gain support from the Victorian government to shift manufacture from China to the Melbourne company SRX in the suburb of Dandenong where minister Minister for Industry and Employment Wade Noonan announced the creation of nearly 200 new Australian manufacturing jobs, in a suburb hit hard by the collapse of the Australian car industry.
Now in the final stages of development; Concourse smart wheels are a realisation of concepts originally formed in the creation of the Award winning Concourse CBM 2 and CBM3 golf buggeis designed by Neo Industrial Design.
Due for release in late 2017 the traditional buggy market wont know what hit it – all you will need to do is un-clip your manual buggy wheel by the press of a button and slide on two Smart Wheels. Motor, batteries, sensors, gyros and wireless connection to a remote control are all self contained within each wheel. You will be able to upgrade your existing manual buggy to power simply by purchasing a different set of wheels.
Whilst not a car it is anticipated that the technology developed to create the smart self contained powered wheel can be applied to a range of wheeled products. Imagine if you wanted to convert your car from 2 to 4WD or your cars engine broke down – and all you had to do was change a wheel.
Imagined, designed and made in Australia for the world.
