This work is a conceptual design of the next-generation vehicle system based on the viewpoint of “timeaxis design,” “multi-timescale model” as timeaxis design theory and “bio-inspired design” as timeaxis design methodology. These viewpoints are the new paradigms in the design of the 21st century which aims at solution of various problems, such as exhaustion of resources or energy, environmental destruction, large-scale accident and the difference of wealth and poverty. We propose a new vehicle system which can realize the safety higher than the conventional vehicle system with incorporating the control system, information system and drive system adapting the mechanism in the group behavior as a life system by use of multispace design method based on above mentioned theory and methodology. Moreover, the usefulness of the system is considered from the viewpoint of timeaxis design.
