A vehicle that aims to provide a new way for retired people to travel with their cats. For the elderly group who retire from a busy job, it is not easy to adapt to the retirement life. In order to help them better adapt to the slower paced life and to resolve the lonely emotions, this smart-driving car can provide a space for intimate contact with cats, creating a warm and comfortable atmosphere for the elderly who are eager to socialize and be close to nature.
As a space shared by people and cats, how to find the best balance in the interior space shared by people and cats became the challenge of this project. All appearance and functional design of the project are related to cats. In the selection and design of visual elements, appropriate design will be combined with the image elements of cats, so that the atmosphere of the interior reflects the distinctive features. Another thing to consider was the interaction between users and cats. In the space area planning, it was necessary to design the cat's activity space and the human-cat interaction space according to the user's intimate interaction with the cat.
