Self-cleaning vehicle interior

The US car manufacturer General Motors has published two patents describing a range of systems for a self-cleaning interior for autonomous shuttles. Sensors monitor the cleanliness level of the interior and activate different cleaning systems as needed. These systems include a foot mat with an integrated vacuum cleaning feature, steam cleaners and automated waste bins. The patents also describe a coupon system aimed at encouraging passengers to remove the bin bag when exiting the vehicle.
