The car maker's vision of the future, the WANDER STAND and WALKER, are vehicles built for the sidewalk

The Japanese car maker has built concept vehicles that are compact enough to navigate through pedestrian crowds and come with high-tech controls. The project is a pair of concept vehicles that will be unveiled in the 44th Tokyo Motor Show 2015.

The bigger car of the two is nicknamed the WANDER STAND. It can sit two people, has a roof and what appears to be two sets of wheels. Swinging doors on both sides are reminiscent of ultra-compact cars but that’s where the similarities end.

In place of a steering wheel is a joystick, and the photos reveal a touch panel for a dashboard. The dashboard syncs to a smartphone, displays messages and can accept calls.
