Designer Phil Pauley has come up with a series of Extreme Weather Rescue Vehicles that could navigate through deep floodwaters and around physical obstacles, unlike conventional trucks and emergency vehicles. The ATVs would be powered by on-board solar arrays and equipped with auxiliary generators to provide power to other vehicles and devices. Wi-Fi hotspots and satellite facilities would provide constant connectivity along with screens for accessing the internet, news and weather broadcasts. Intelligent design features include cameras, integrated alarm systems and an array of sensors would help drivers avoid collisions with debris.
