Developed as a part of the “Fun Taiwan, New Design” exhibition during DMY International Design Week Berlin 2010, the “Rescue Transportation” as its name depicts is a disaster management project to aid quick evacuation and relief in emergencies. Designed by young Taiwanese designers, including Meng-Chang Lin, Yu-Min Cho, Yan-Rui Huang and Yi-Xin Huang, the new transportation project comprises a helicopter and a truck that can either be used separately or combined together for quick supply of basic stuff and transport of injured victims to and from the disaster-ridden locals. Running on turbine power, the helicopter converts surplus energy into electricity to power the truck; while on the other hand, the truck features an independent suspension to overcome the hard terrain of the affected areas.
Delivery trucks that can be used in desert areas of Africa need to be entirely different than the ones we see on the highways. Auto designer Péter Iglói-Nagy has conceptualized an eco-friendly truck for these hard to reach areas that maximize the use of natural resources readily available in deserts.
Developed for the ACCELERATE competition, the tow truck by designer Andrew Chirkova is an advanced vehicle concept that generating power from a jet engine seems to take urban transportation to new heights. Featuring a heavy-duty engine resulting in a low center of gravity, the futuristic truck gives an altogether new dimension to towing vehicles, such as an airport tractor or a trailer tractor. Measuring 10000 x 5000 x 1500 mm (LWH), the new truck accommodates the driver in a hi-tech cabin for better controls, together with three members of the maintenance crew, with ease. Though we don’t have much technical specs of the vehicle, still you may enjoy the images after the jump.
