RFID safety glasses and workshop reader
The Proximity Goggles are RFID enabled safety glasses that can be used in workshop environments to prevent people from using dangerous tools and machines without wearing the necessary PPE on their eyes. Tools and machines connected to one of the RFID enabled plug sockets or readers will detect if users are wearing their goggles as they go to use the machine. The reader would then take steps to prevent the tool from operating as long as the user is not wearing the safety glasses on their face.
Goggle pressure switches
The RFID chip in the goggles is separated from its antenna when the pressure switches are not pressed, meaning it can’t be read by the RFID readers connected to each machine in the workshop.
The goggles feature easily adjustable nose pads and ear hooks to guarantee users of all sizes can ensure reliable contact with the pressure pads.
Passive RFID technology
A passive RFID chip requires no power of its own but instead gains power from the readers, preventing the need to change batteries or charge the goggles.
Helping passengers enjoy taking the train
A station platform module that uses data from incoming trains to prompt an inflatable flower display, inspiring users to move to areas on the platform where arriving trains will be emptier.
An LED root system moves people to areas of the platform that will help them get a seat on incoming trains to reduce crowding on both stations and trains alike to increase the efficiency of the rail service and improve customer satisfaction.
Imitation flowers displays use air-blown stems to inflate and bloom into life in certain areas of the platform that will be good areas to wait for the next train, while units situated in areas of the platform that have become heavily congested will deflate and wilt. This helps communicate to waiting passengers how likely they are to get a seat on their train where they currently are.
I am a hardworking and attentive designer who relishes problem solving through iterative design. I love getting hands on with projects and investigating problems to find creative solutions that make people's lives more enjoyable..
I have always enjoyed being creative, and for me there is no greater enjoyment than using my skill set to solve problems that have the potential to make people's lives easier or more enjoyable. As designers, we have an ever increasing responsibility to do design well and I personally look forward to being able to use my career to have a positive impact. I am a hardworking designer and enjoy ideation sketching and modelling, while I have found that being well organised in the design process helps drive improvement as ideas progress and develop. I gained lots of valuable experience while out on placement and feel comfortable taking on responsibility and making decisions.
