Cars - Page 2 - Future Cars: A Design Arts Project Lesson Plan
based on Professor Martin Rayala's Lesson Outline at
Design a car for the year 2020.
Do it in 4 steps:
1. Think about your ideas and
see the list of "9 Technology Ideas" published below.
The greatest need will be for a car that works in crowded cities rather than open roads.
Search the internet for ideas people are already developing and watch this video:
2. Visualize the possibilities.
Start doing some drawings. Think about futuristic ideas.
C. Make a Model.
Make a prototype (model) of your car using inexpensive materials.
These could include paper or cardboard and arts & crafts supplies.
This link is to a classic antique 1911 Rolls Royce papercraft car :-) but it can give you some ideas about "paper model-building"...
Think about the Whole and its Parts...
D. Present your idea.
Use drawings, models, videos, presentation boards,
concept drawings, etc. to present your ideas in class.
This is a simple papercraft project made into a kool video, from a guy in Japan.
9 Technology Ideas that car designers predict in future cars.
Less of the driving will be done by humans.
Drive by WiFi
There won't be fixed steering columns but steering will be done more like a game controller,
freeing up design space inside the car.
That hump that runs down the center of today's cars will be gone
because each wheel will operate independently and a central drive train won't be necessary.
Engines in the wheels
. Rather than one large engine taking up space in the front,
it is likely that each wheel will have its own electric motor.
. New moldable materials that are stronger than steel will allow more transparent spaces
(bigger windows) and integrated lights, LEDs placed wherever you want them.
Smaller, easier to park cars
The City Car is small, city-friendly, easy to park and stackable
(a bit like carts in a grocery store) so it takes up less space.
Cars will be able to connect to each other on highways so they function like a train or a bus
and can safely move faster and take up less space on the road.
. You can put different bodies on your car for different needs - transporting more people, more storage, etc. by simply unbolting one body and popping on another. You will also be able to design your own car body.
Changeable interiors and exteriors
There will be a great deal of freedom and ability to customize your car.
Steering can be done from anywhere in the car. Panel controls can be configured however you want them.
Type in keywords such as "car of the future" to see lots of Google Image Search pictures and Youtube Video Search
