Lightweight Mobility

 

Vehicle Design Project 2011 (in collab. with Kiska)


Class: TD1
Duration: 10 weeks (Fall)

The aim on this project was to practice vehicle design methodology. Students performed basic research in order to identify transportation design opportunities in their home countries. They then applied this information into the development of a vehicle (or transportation system) concept.

The design process incorporated cultural references as background and inspiration. Students were expected to address real needs identified during research. Results could include solutions for personal or public transportation and even services like goods delivery, rescue or professional applications for the year 2030.

A conceptual and human-centric approach was followed and the solutions strongly considered the user experience when driving (or riding) the vehicles in order to boost their attractiveness and consequently have a positive effect on sustainability efforts.
