2013 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The company TriRoom Innovation AB had the idea of creating a new sport training system, the Triathlon Training Room. During the development they wanted to involve some students who contribute with ideas to the project and to look at it with an open-mind. The need of involving students is the base of this Master Thesis project, that is the last step of the Degree at Industrial Design Engineering and Product Development at Zaragoza University, developed at Luleå University of Technology during an Erasmus program.In this thesis the product has been analysed from the required open- minded view, finding different problems and designing valid solutions to each problem, paying particular attention to the details.Much of the work consists of analysing the product that the company provided to the students and criticized it in a constructive way in order to improve the product. The design has followed the human-centred design process to create the most comfortable product and in order to maximize the use.The first step was to ask people about what they want and need while they play sports to have a good knowledge of the user. Taking the users as the design critical point, the given design was analysed and some problems were found. Creative methods were applied in order to generate creative ideas to solve those problems; brainstorming and sketching were used for fulfilling that objective. To further develop and visualize the concept, a model was made using CAD software, and finally, photo realistic images were generated as well as a 3D printed prototype to complete the whole design process.The result is a more completed and refined product, in which exist the perfect solutions for each design challenge that have been appearing during the project. The Triathlon Training Room has a powerful aesthetic style that matches perfectly with the TriRoom Innovation AB needs, and its design will inspire people to try a new sport tra
