BA (Hons) Automotive and Transport – Urban systems
The current bin lorry system is inefficient and is poorly integrated into the ecosystem. Instead of supressing the climate issues it adds to them. With this new system it can focus on mixed household waste, ecological purity, street hygiene and community integration. Their were many obstacles to overcome for instance the interaction with the vehicle; making sure it remained easy to operate for the operators and also the interior; allowing the users to utilise the vehicle with little strain. Some successes that came from this was the sorting system; it solves the main economic issue and the HMI; optimised to give comfort to the community and operators. Changes id make to the project would be the shape of the vehicle, I believe it would have opened up alternative methods of interaction with the vehicle.
