Combined Car-Aircraft-Hovercraft transportation system||Overpass transportation system||Fastest Ambulance in the world.

Design Statement
Vehicle has combined features of Car|Aircraft|Railway|Skater|Hovercraft|.
It looks like as a car, has 2 or multiple renewable energy powered propulsion engines as per need mounted on both side wings left and right side respectively.
Vehicle runs on road/surface with two or multiple wheels aligned in-line to each other, mounted on live or dead axle and has two additional wheels attached on left and right side of vehicle respectively with the help of long height adjustable arms. These arms have pneumatic/mechanical/hydraulic length adjust-ability as well as suspension technique that provides swivelled motion to the vehicle about its side wheels central axis and absorbs shocks.

Vehicle in motion
In starting stage the vehicle is stationary and all wheels touches with the ground surface. Length of side wheel’s arms may be minimum to maximum as per requirement.

As the engine starts, it provides self propelled power to the vehicle and vehicle moves forward.
Vehicle hovers in upward and downward direction with the help of increase or decrease in speed/lift forces respectively. By adjusting the magnitude of hovering, vehicle can swivel about the central axis of side wheels as well as continue moving in forward direction at same time and even can leave the surface or can fly in the air. So vehicle has ability to continue move ahead by overpassing/crossing the obstructions in its way such as traffic, small size vehicles, holes etc. without need to stop itself.

As discussed in previous article ‘Transportation system used lift and gravitational force Into forward thrust’ can be used to improve the speed, efficiency and stability of this transportation system.

For general brake application, In-lined wheels are responsible. In addition to it, side wheels and spoilers mounted on wings can also serve to slow/stop the vehicle.

To steer the vehicle, steering of In-lined wheels/side wheels is responsible. In addition to it, direction control of the vehicle is also possible by steering the thrusters or elevators.

With installation of sensors on its side wheels/in suitable position, vehicle featured with safe, efficient, fast and auto response.
While travelling responsible sensors detects ahead obstructions in path of travel, provides alert to the control system. Further, control system drives the hovering actuators in a controlled manner to produce desired hovering effect in upward and downward direction respectively to overpasses the obstructions.

Note:
Wings can be modify according to selection of suitable modern applications. To minimize overall width, folding wings can be use.
Quantity and position of wheel is an option and selection depends on need.
Assumed that side wheels are heavy enough to get the vehicle swivel motion about central axis of side wheels.
