An Online Portal for Competitive Submissions
As a part of one of our mobility projects, we worked along with a MNC automobile company to come up with a concept of a Rural Utility Vehicle for South East Asian Countries. To widen our research base and gather more data for the project, we created a competitive platform for design schools in three countries, where participants would learn a step wise method for design research & in turn conduct research in their local environment on the requirements for the vehicle. The portal helped students register, participate with research & ideation submissions and the shortlisted finalists would be given the means to create a prototype.
Using the Mobility Vision online platform, the participants could upload their research findings & outcomes. The data was accessible by the jury, who were able to view each participant’s entry, mark, select and choose the finalists. Each finalist was mentored by experts before final submission. The platform is able to communicate with over 350 participants from 3 country regions and 9 design schools.
The platform helped extract all the data and research findings for further R&D. The customised platform played a huge role in the project, enabling the smooth conduct of the competition, revealing regional & local insights entirely online!
