No one ever wants to be in an ambulance. But in the event that you or a loved one need to be transported via EMS, you want it to be well stocked and safe. Teams participating in the SOLIDWORKS xDesign SAE Challenge have been tasked with designing one of three rescue vehicles of the future, and the ambulance is one that could be most realistically implemented.
What are the issues facing modern ambulances? How are current ambulances designed? Publications like EMS World and JEMS are great resources, where real emergency professionals write articles and share information about issues they’re facing with their equipment. How do you put patient and operator safety first, while also designing a space, fast, accessible, and easy to drive vehicle?
You can take a look at how far ambulances have come, and your SAE team can design the ambulance of the future!
