HYENA is a special motorcycle applying to extreme environments, such as disaster rescue, material searching, ecological protection and field research. The main frame of the motorcycle is made of magnesium alloy, carbon fiber sheet and a small amount of ABS plastic. The combination of large amount of magnesium alloy and carbon fiber sheet makes the HYENA feature for the lightness, flexibility, anti-corrosion and anti-impact. Meanwhile, based on the concept of IOT, the designer created HYENA SNS (social networking services) for HYENA. It can sound three kinds of warning tone, representing “in danger”, “appreciation” and “alert” respectively. These warning tones can conduct efficient yet simple communication and information transfer during the operation for the operators. Compared with the verbal communication or text prompt on digital screen, such method can make the communication faster and clearer in the high-risk situation. Meantime, such communication can be conducted passively. With the development of 5G technology, if HYENA can still be connected to the internet in the extreme environment, a more scientific prompt can be provided. For instance, when it is closer to the destination, “alert” can pop out, intermittent “in danger” warning can be sent out while the motorcycle overturns abnormally, the other person can be contacted and upload the last position to the head office.
