Innovative Vehicle Design
The course of innovative vehicle design is a special course on traffic issues run by D-School @ NTU. This course will introduce the basic principles of various vehicles and design considerations of different dimensions. Students are required to form interdisciplinary teams, set questions through observation and experience and provide new proposals.
The prototype of all proposals must be completed within the course and their design concept and innovative ideas are examined by external members.
This course is also one of the major transportation courses of NTU's Boundaryless University Program, and will invite the relevant personnel from the Taipei City Government to discuss the proposals to improve Taipei's traffic.
If you are really crazy about the car, if you have ideas about the traffic, if you want to give Taipei a new look, if you want to transform NTU campus traffic and if you want to create the future traffic, welcome to probe into new transport solutions.
In this course, the students will visit the overall environment of vehicle production and sales, understand user experience of different vehicles and exchange with automotive experts. Your proposal may be an important element of the vehicle MIT. They will set up an interdisciplinary team and learn how to interact with NTU students with different expertise. Students use the basic concepts of design thinking and re-think issues regarding vehicles from the perspective of human. Furthermore, they will use the Creative Practice Center of D-School and complete the prototype with real vehicles. Besides, through the cooperation platform of D-School and the industry, the innovative proposals can be quickly put into practice.
Students signing up for this course need to form an interdisciplinary creative R&D group. They must conduct in-depth discussions about the topics about vehicle use. After understanding the use behaviors, they produce creative ideas and solutions, and need to achieve the results in a real vehicle to demonstrate feasibility.
