Automotive and Transport Design MA
My name is Tingwei Zhou. I am from China. I am a student of Automotive and Transportant Design MA. This is my final major project--2050 C-Antarctica Exploration Project. Antarctica has the latest and the lowest degree of discovery in the earth. The fourth International Polar Year has made people concern more about Antarctica and its role in the global system. With increasingly recognized that Antarctica is closely related to human survival and development. To better study and protect the Antarctica, China plans to pay more attention to the Antarctic scientific expedition and introduce more clean energy systems in Antarctica. My concept is to design a research vehicle for Chinese Antarctic scientific expedition team in 2050. This is an electric vehicle with zero emissions. It can work in remote areas far away from research stations for several days. It can provide working space, facilities and accommodation for two researchers. It can help researchers do complex tasks and make their research experience more convenient and comfortable. The aim of my project is to help people better explore, understand and work in Antarctica.
