RollEvac is a Military Med-Evacuation Vehicle Concept Monocycle which can be very useful in combat to carry wounded soldiers. During the war or disaster, the rescue team usually struggles to reach inaccessible places due to many barriers such as sand dunes, dense forests, rocks, etc. Any available rescue vehicles are usually too big and can’t be adapted to the harsh environment.
RollEvac is inspired by Golden Wheel spider that has a unique, rare method of escape, this spider curls its body into a wheel shape and rolls down sand dunes at rapid speed. This monocycle is an all-terrain vehicle for emergency situations where the wounded soldiers need to be transported from the battlefield. This evacuation vehicle rolls just like a golden rolling spider and is best suited for inaccessible places like dense forests, cliffs and deep gorges where even air rescue is very difficult. This vehicle is intended to accompany a military group in combat zones, it can detect with radar wounded soldiers and evacuate them to the army medical center.
