Safety Bus Concept
Safety Bus Concept

SBC includes a smart construction with deformation zones that absorbs crash forces. It reduces impact on passengers and driver and prevents roof collapse in a roll over. Double sided glass prevents passengers from being ejected through windows. Emergency exits are placed in stiff parts of the construction to ensure functionality after an accident. Two step evacuation exits prevent hypothermia and enables fast evacuation. The placement of the emergency exits, consider standing, 90 and 180 degrees rollover.
