Product Design Innovation MA
My name is Xin Yinan and I graduated from Coventry University with a degree in Product Design Innovation. My undergraduate degree is in environmental design and I chose product design during my MA because it is a very important area of design that is closely related to people's lives.I believe a outstanding designer must use empa -thy and focus more on people with a plenty of re-search to creat brilliant products.
This project is about the design of an e-trike. Due to traffic congestion and environmental protection, more and more people living in cities are choosing to use the e-trike as a means of transport, so the demand for the e-trike is increasing. Design concept is that to design an e-trike used in all-year-around, an e-trike that suitable for old people and people with back pain, an e-trike is safer for children. Inspired by the horizontal bicycle, the driver is almost half reclined in the seat, when the lumbar region is at its most relaxed. The low centre of gravity in this way enhances the overall stability of the ride. The seat has been designed with ergonomics in mind. The roof canopy is designed to ensure year-round use.
