Child Seating Solution for Shared Bicycles. Designed for the TInnGO project by Ronald Jurianto

Topic DesignWomen needs in transport Smart bikingShared modes of mobility

The shared bicycle child seat is made to meet parents’ needs, be it school runs or leisurely rides. With an eggshell inspired form, the shared bicycle child seat aims to alleviate shared mobility problems faced by parents while simultaneously involving children in the experience by including a climbing device. The safety harness pairs harmoniously with the magnetic helmet and seat, allowing parents to attach the harness away during loading, creating a perfect symphony of safety and practicality. The included pannier acts as the carrying case for the seat, whereas in conjunction with the footrest it provides protection to children’s legs.

    Hi Andree, thank you for the feedback. I will add a few sets of orthographic drawings to aid understanding in regards to the sizing. The development journey document is also a good idea. It would be great to be able to discuss further with what you have in mind regarding this project, would you be available for further discussion?

    Hi

    can we have a  full  package with children of various size included in the gallery.

    it would be nice to see a pdf of the journey to this, and the ideas that were rejected along the way. I know this cuased a lot of issues as we need to consider the wider system/usage context

    Ron, I particularly appreciate the sense of play in these designs. It may al so be that the graphic style lends itself to presentation in a playful way. I still find it reminiscent of Tin-tin sketches and I can hardly raise greater praise than that! Good job!

    Hello Janet, it would be great to discuss further with you about your concerns regarding the staircase. Would you be available to discuss further?

    A nice well thought-through idea. I like the protection for the childs legs but need to think about the dimensions as their legs can get very thick when all wrapped up in padded trousers or onesuits.  The only thing I find impractical is the 'staircase' for fun and independent climbing. I am fairly sure that with the weight of a child it would simply fall over as soon as they start to climb. With a VERY heavy base it would be more stable but then way too heavy to carry on the bike.  It is a nice idea to provide something fun and make the child independent but would only work if there can be a special 'step' as a fixed part of the bike, so parent holds the bike while child climbs up.  It is probably easiest for parent to lift child onto bike without having additional worry of the staircase stability.
