Emergency transport of the future


New designs showing the possible future for the UK's emergency transport have been unveiled at the Royal College of Art, London.

The concepts are the result of a two-year project called Healthcare on the Move, funded by the Government's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

RCA designer Rob Thompson talks through some of the proposed radical new features which include ejector seats, off road driving ability and 360 degree access to patients.

The Smart Pods Project is open at the RCA for two days from 7th April.
