OScar Release 0.2
Design Challenge

While we are busy discussing requirements and concepts, we would like to invite all designers to think about the form of OScar. Here, as a sort of inspiration, you can find some ideas from Release 0.1. You can post and discuss new ideas in our design forum.
OScar - Release 0.2 PDF Print E-mail
It is the goal of the OScar Project to develop a car according to Open Source principles. In our opinion, a car is not a vehicle full of high-tech gadgets. Instead, we are looking for a simple and functional concept to spread mobility. Form follows function.

Apart from that, OScar is not just a car. It is about new ways of mobility and the spreading of the Open Source idea in the real (physical) world. On this website, you will find a great community of developers and drivers who want to invent mobility anew and together.

The project started in 1999. In December 2005, it reached release 0.2. Starting in 2006, everyone is welcome to participate.

Download Technology Review Article PDF Print E-mail
Our partner Technology Review does not only spread nice words, TR also acts: They made the story “Mit Vollgas in die Krise” available for a free download for the OScar community. Unfortunately it is currently only available in German. From our point of view, this is the best and most comprehensive article written in 2005 that critically deals with the development of cars. We read a lot, but this article really encouraged us to continue.
Waiting for Wiki PDF Print E-mail
Our watchful community members have noticed it already: We are currently working to integrate a Wiki in order to improve the documentation of OScar requirements. It will take a few more days before it is complete. We would like to shorten the wait and structure our ideas by providing the last draft of our module definition table. We are looking forward to your suggestions and remember: the module definition could represent a nice start for a Wiki.
Back from Hell PDF Print E-mail
A lot of things have been going on in the last few years and it really took some time for OScar to take the next big step. We had to admit that we underestimated the expenditure of time and also the technical and legal conditions in 2000. But anyway, discernment is at the beginning of every improvement and we never give up! Many long talks and a strong believe in success have pushed us! But - and this is important for us and everybody else - OScar is a hobby, not more and not less.

OScar - Requirements PDF Print E-mail
The OScar project is still in a concept phase. We would like to invite all of you to contribute in developing a simple, sound, but innovative concept for a car. All ideas and suggestions are collected in our Requirement Forum in the integration area. Themes and ideas which succeed there, will find their way into our concept.

Here, you can find the basic conditions.

The next step is the completion of the concept until midyear 2006. Single projects can be implemented together via a project management platform.
