Design av interiör till befintligt fordonskoncept
2012 (Swedish)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This report is the result of a master thesis work for the Industrial design engineering programme at Lulea University of Technology conducted during the spring of 2012. This project was carried out in collaboration with Semcon AB on their automotive and design branch at the head office in Gothenburg, Sweden.The purpose of this project was to develop an interior of an electrically powered three wheeled concept vehicle named Trio concept. The concept was made by Semcons design department and had, at the start of this project an exterior but lacked interior parts. In theory, this concept is supposed to be launched within a few years as an environmentally friendly vehicle for a daily commuting need within a big city. Visually, the Trio concept had deliberately been given a futuristic design to differentiate itself from today’s fossil-fueled vehicles. The vehicle would be able to accommodate two adults and able to run without a B license or protective clothing while offering comfort and protection from the elements.In the startup of the project a project plan was established determining the project content and objective. This was to eliminate the risk of misunderstandings within the project team and to make sure that the project team agreed. The project started with a thorough preliminary investigation in which an intended customer target was identified and the vehicle's primary use was surveyed. While existing competitors in the form of present vehicles and developed concepts were examined in a benchmark. To provide guidance, several mood boards were fashioned prior to the creative work. The project then went into a creative phase which initially dealt with the overall layout of the interior and later move on to focus on separate components. These concept components were developed through exploratory sketching, brain storming, workshops, etc., and evaluated carefully before further development. Furthermore a mock-up was created to perform ergonomic tests on critical components to determine the dimensions and adjustment regions before the components were re-created as surface models in Autodesk Alias.The result is an exciting, smart and aesthetically pleasing interior with features and technology that makes The Trio concept a truly unique vehicle. The technical systems are described in the results section along with photo-realistic renderings of the interior mounted in the exterior.
