Final year project
Improving rental scooter handlebars by enhancing safety features and styling. [Read more]
By focusing on the user, an innovative design was created. This improves the ease of the ride by enhancing aesthetics together with safety features leading to a reduction in accidents, an increase in the usage of scooters, improved handling of them and therefore also provides benefits to the environment.
The interface of the scooter allows the user to be warned of a potential obstacle in front of them through the use of radar.
Using a shared scooter scheme app enables the user to have the opportunity to locate the nearest scooter within a city and plan a journey with an accessible form of transport.
Design development included various sketching techniques, from quick paper sketches exploring initial ideas, to the realistic visualisation of digital sketches.
Trycycle is an electric tricycle sharing scheme to encourage the elderly generation to take an active alternative.
With electric assistance the user can be confident when cycling.
A personal shopping trolley is located at the front of the tricycle, easing the process of shopping.
The skills obtained from the degree course have continued to give me the motivation to succeed, excel and pursue a career in design. I have always had a passion for sketching and visualising products. This is mainly done through both hand sketching and digital sketching to a high quality, allowing me to convey the concept to others. Digital rendering is used to bring my concepts to life, an efficient and effective process of showing the idea. The ability to sketch has developed a growing interest in the aesthetic styling of concepts, allowing me to express new innovative products.
