ScootASS: Build/Test

In the past week, we designed a couple very low fidelity prototype and had the chance to test them with some people from the studio. Our HCW statement is ‘How can we empower mobility scooter users in Rice serveries obtain and carry food and drinks independently and efficiently?’ Our prototype ideas are as follows: Prototype 1: 11×18 inch tray with attached arm system clamped on to the scooter Using a screw and clamp system with tray between the screw and clamp to allow rotation of the tray Material – Wood Using donut shape on top of the tray to hold … Continue reading ScootASS: Build/Test

ScootAASS: Ideate

This week we narrowed down our solution ideas by thinking about what solutions would be feasible to implement in one semester, cost effective, and actually target our problem space. Initially, we focused on both carrying food and potentially reaching food. We decided to go forward with a tray idea that would target the first problem space. The tray would have anti-slip material on it, which would be available at every servery (~2-3 trays per servery). To go into more detail, we wanted to attach the tray to the scooter. This would make it easier to carry more food, and could … Continue reading ScootAASS: Ideate
