rescue//transport all-terrain vehicle
RT 112 is designed to provide help in every part of the world where access is difficult and time plays an important role. RT 112 it's not another futuristic car - the main goal was to create car from existing technologies which will be possible to use in the next couple of years. The project combines the latest technologies with the simplicity. That helps in the efficient use especially during the rescue operations. The inspirations were classic all-terrain vehicles as well as helicopters which have great visibility from cockpit. From nature project draws inspiration from camel sitting down while loading equipment or people.
Every part of RT 112 is designed for rescue purposes. One of the most important materials used to inner shell of the vehicle is Makrolon. This polycarbonate is opening completely new styling options. Unlike the conventional structure this material allowed to create seamless skin combining metal shell and window functions. Some parts of the vehicle includes an extra layer of special foil to get visibility only from the interior at the same time blocking heat carried by light. The car is equipped with air suspension, thus gaining an important role in the loading wounded people because of significance change in its height. An equally important role is playing front and back light with three levels of intensity and roof telescopic light tower lighting a large area around the parked vehicle. Cockpit and seats creates a well-knit structure made from big parts which strengthen and stiffen whole body. It also provides an opportunity for rapid change entire elements. RT 112 is equipped with electric motors and water tanks (in case of rescue operations in disaster areas) where the heaviest elements are placed in the middle section of the vehicle to get there the center of gravity. Whole back section is editable, which means that it could be use to vary types of actions anywhere in the world.
As Tom explains, " I didn't want to design another vehicle which will be more form than function. My aim was to design a car which in the first place will be putting important problems in serious situations. I wanted to design these vehicle in every part, from outer shell to tire tread."
Everything else from the outside to the inside of the vehicle show the animation and images below. Enjoy!
