Car or beetle? New Hyundai can climb up walls

’Biomimetics’.

How is a 20 year old expression, which denotes the part of science, dealing with mimicking nature. Engineers have to increasingly ’biomimetics’ in mind when they develop solutions to society's challenges.

So also with the south Korean Hyundai.

Here, the engineers designed a car, which in addition to making an ordinary car run on wheels – is able to wander. The concept car, which has been given the name of ’Elevate’, mimicking the gaits of four-legged mammals and reptiles (judge for yourself which ones).

the Transformation from vehicle to reptiles is possible, because the car's four wheels are mounted to the robotben, which can be folded in and out.

the Purpose of vandringsfunktionen is, among other things, that the car should be able to get around in disaster areas. Here the meaning of the four robotben, that it is maneuverable in the terrain where it has been previously impossible for the cars to come forward.

It could, for example, be in the remains of a destroyed building, places with a thick layer of snow, or climb over the one and a half metres high walls.

the Car (or ’beetle’) was presented in an animated video in connection with the large-scale CES trade show, taking place right now in Las Vegas, USA.

In connection with the presentation kept the Hyundai from stepping up on the big blade in the description of its new car. 'Elevate' is, according to Hyundai developed to save lives by tsunamis and earthquakes, as well as to assist people with physical disabilities.

Well yes, and so can also be used on future space missions.

One day humans send manned craft to the Moon or Mars. When the day comes, will ’Elevate’ will be a great way to help the astronauts to explore and make discoveries on these planets, where they are not going to be greeted by paved roads, " says John Suh, who is deputy director of the Hyundai, according to Yahoo News.
