Flexible autonomous fuel-cell architecture could form the basis of emergency power generation stations, ambulances and freight delivery vehicles.
GM's SURUS is a flexible, fully autonomous fuel-cell truck chassis. Note its four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering.
Here's a rendering of SURUS as a mobile power generation station, including an array of solar panels.
GM even envisions SURUS as an off-road autonomous ambulance. Something of its size could likely handle multiple patients simultaneously.
The SURUS has serious ground clearance and aggressive tires for use in hostile environments.
A chassis cab like this is just one of dozens of potential uses for SURUS.
SURUS could provide self-driving cargo supplies, as with this freight box configuration
Fully by-wire construction means that you could plug in almost any type of bodywork on top of SURUS.
Here's a closeup of one of SURUS' control panels.
Here's SURUS' hydrogen refueling port. The vehicle is designed to go 400 miles between fill-ups.
Think of SURUS as a plug-and-play chassis, a blank slate.
