Toyota LandCruisers are the vehicle of choice for navigating the Australian Outback, due to their ability to ride across difficult terrains. Now, LandCruiser Emergency Network is a collaboration between Flinders University in Adelaide, Toyota and creative agency Saatchi and Saatchi aiming to turn the cars into emergency communication hotspots across some of the 65 percent of the country that still receive no mobile signal. It will see the vehicles transformed into a wireless network, so that when someone gets lost in the Outback they can use the LandCruiser hotspots to communicate an emergency message.
