Large cities and traffic jams are not inseparable. But avtomeltsy from America found a way out by creating Car-transformer, which is able to go around traffic jams.
Meet: a new car that can drive over other cars!
The creative studio Thinkmodo has developed a unique SUV model, which is a modified version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. A novelty called Hum Rider easily overcomes traffic jams, just lifting your own body over other cars.
Experts replaced the conventional suspension and power unit of the jeep, installing in their place a special telematics platform Hum. The latter consists of four hydraulic sliding racks, which ensure the lifting of the body of the car by as much as 2.7 m. The wheels thus part in the sides, thereby widening the car’s track – the SUV can easily pass over the cars in front of it.
Weight Hum Rider is almost 4 tons, because the wheels for it are selected larger. As an energy source for the car, an additional Honda gasoline generator was chosen, which is responsible for controlling the hydraulic pumps lifting the bodywork. Scientists have also worked to minimize possible emergencies: the transformer is equipped with four video cameras, the image of which is displayed on the display in the cabin.
Unfortunately, the new SUV is not able to develop a high speed, and therefore the launch of the model in mass production is not yet possible.
