Abstract [en]

This thesis reports on a collaborative concept development with Volvo Car Corporation. The problem underlying the concept development was to innovate a steering device for a level-four autonomous car. Specifically: How can the steering wheel and its mount be designed to give the driver more room when the car can drive itself?

The product development process was combined with a hybrid strategy view, both an in-side-out and outside-in approach. The thesis is written by the project leader Victor Wetterlind for his bachelor’s thesis in Innovation and design engineering at Karlstad University. This with supervision from postdoctoral researcher within innovation, Jakob Trischler and examiner, professor in manufacturing engineering, Leo de Vin. The thesis corresponds to 22.5 hp and belongs to the faculty of health, science and technology.

Along the project, analysis of field tests, research on related subjects, discussions with experts and lead-users were held. Concepts were created with both individual and group-based methods. The project has used computer-aided design as a tool to test concepts along the evaluation phase. 2-D and 3-D models were used to perceived size, proportion and design as well as for digitally verifying kinematics and function. After several evaluation iterations and concept refinement, a concept recommendation was done to the company in the shape of a presentation and 3D-model.
