You may have noticed that most car design books tend to focus on exterior design, as this is what most people think of as Car Design. However, with a growing demand in the industry for interior designers, I hope that this book will encourage (transportation design) students and (car) designers to take a much needed closer look at this equally important aspect of car designI have always enjoyed teaching and being able to incorporate my industry experience to deliver pithier lessons. Through these books, I wanted to expand on this experience to reach a larger audience of not only students, but also those just curious about car design, case studies or perhaps another designer's point of view.As this is a rather hefty topic, I have split this book into 3 Volumes: Volume 1 has a brief history section looking back at a few of my favorite heritage car interiors and what shaped them, as well as the basics of research, sketching, and rendering. Volume 2 covers five Case Studies from SEAT DESIGN, V-Vehicle Company, Qoros Automotive and a couple of projects from Nissan Design America. This covers the concepts for these interiors and how they started and developed, the concept sketches and the thought process behind them. Volume 3 is geared at students and professionals and runs through the design process."Lets design a car interior" mimics a University design project, this spans from writing a project brief through research, ideation and execution.

Designing Car Interiors, Volume 2 is the second book of a series of three books. To recap, Volume 1 took a brief look at car interior design history and culture, with a particular focus on American, British, European, and Japanese design, in addition to touching on how socio-economics can bear influence on said design. To illustrate the design philosophy of said car cultures, I compared and contrasted the evolution of a number of my favorite vintage car dashboards through to the present day. The last section of the book introduced the basics of research, sketching, and rendering skills, emphasizing their importance to communicate and promote ideas in the context of a design teamand studio.Throughout my career, I have been privileged to work in some of the most interesting and creative automotive design studios. I was, and still am, fortunate enough to witness, and be part of what I consider an extraordinary process. With this in mind, Volume 2 shifts gears to look at several projects worked on in different design studios around the world, - I talk about the design studio settings, as well as concept and production vehicle projects that took place in these studios. Volume 3 will focus on writing a project brief, research, and project execution.Our Volume 2 journey starts in Barcelona at SEAT design, then moves across the Atlantic to California with stops at Nissan Design America and my first start-up experience, at the V-Vehicle Company.We finally jet across the Pacific to another start-up, Shanghai's Qoros Auto Co., Ltd.Of course, for car designers, these are everyday occurrences, but for those not working in this profession or students intent on becoming designers, I hope the experience shared in this book gives you a decent idea of what goes on behind the scenes.As with the previous book, my intent here is not to critique or analyze these projects, but instead offer some insight, for those not familiar, into car design projects from sketch through to production car. Using actual projects serves to not only illustrate, but also bring this remarkable process to life.This is not an attempt at an historical account, but rather a way to illustrate the great effort and challenge that goes behind designing the car interior most of us take for granted, as we sit in ordrive them.

Materials are the stuff of design. From the very beginning of human history, materials have been taken from the natural world and shaped, modified, and adapted for everything from primitive tools to modern electronics. This renowned book by noted materials engineering author Mike Ashby and industrial designer Kara Johnson explores the role of materials and materials processing in product design, with a particular emphasis on creating both desired aesthetics and functionality. The new edition features even more of the highly useful "materials profiles" that give critical design, processing, performance and applications criteria for each material in question. The reader will find information ranging from the generic and commercial names of each material, its physical and mechanical properties, its chemical properties, its common uses, how it is typically made and processed, and even its average price. And with improved photographs and drawings, the reader is taken even more closely to the way real design is done by real designers, selecting the optimum materials for a successful product. The best guide ever published on the on the role of materials, past and present, in product development, by noted materials authority Mike Ashby and professional designer Kara Johnson--now with even better photos and drawings on the Design Process Significant new section on the use of re-cycled materials in products, and the importance of sustainable design for manufactured goods and services Enhanced materials profiles, with addition of new materials types like nanomaterials, advanced plastics and bio-based materials

Every day we interact with thousands of consumer products. We not only expect them to perform their functions safely, reliably, and efficiently, but also to do it so seamlessly that we don’t even think about it. However, with the many factors involved in consumer product design, from the application of human factors and ergonomics principles to reducing risks of malfunction and the total life cycle cost, well, the process just seems to get more complex. Edited by well-known and well-respected experts, the two-volumes of Handbook of Human Factors and Ergonomics in Consumer Product Design simplify this process. The first volume, Human Factors and Ergonomics in Consumer Product Design: Methods and Techniques, outlines the how to incorporate Human Factors and Ergonomics (HF/E) principles and knowledge into the design of consumer products in a variety of applications. It discusses the user-centered design process, starting with how mental workload affects every day interactions with consumer products and what lessons may be applied to product design. The book then highlights the ever-increasing role of information technology, including digital imaging, video and other media, and virtual reality applications in consumer product design. It also explores user-centered aspect of consumer product development with discussions of user-centered vs. task-based approach, articulation and assessment of user requirements and needs, interaction with design models, and eco design. With contributions from a team of researchers from 21 countries, the book covers the current state of the art methods and techniques of product ergonomics. It provides an increased knowledge of how to apply the HF/E principles that ultimately leads to better product design.

This e-book details the most interesting and important characteristics of the automobiles, car maintenance, styling features, car body style, the standard classification of the cars, an history of the automobiles, introduction in the automotive industry, and the traffic code, rules and signs. An automobile, usually called a car (an old word for carriage) or a truck, is a wheeled vehicle that carries its own engine. Older terms include horseless carriage and motor car, with “motor” referring to what is now usually called the engine. It has seats for the driver and, almost without exception, for at least one passenger. The automobile was hailed as an environmental improvement over horses when it was first introduced. Before its introduction, in New York City, over 10,000 tons of manure had to be removed from the streets daily. However, in 2006 the automobile is one of the primary sources of worldwide air pollution and cause of substantial noise and health effects.
