To address the increasing number of national disasters occurring around the world, designer Bryan Lee has created a high-speed, adaptable aid vehicle to improve emergency response in affected areas. Taking design cues from both the physical and psychological aspects of ants – which are quick, agile and can carry between ten to fifty times their own body weight; A.N.T’s body contains six individually-powered wheels, providing a stable ride no matter the terrain. The vehicle’s innovative suspension also allows the body to be raised or lowered to combat wind resistance or unpredictable terrain.
