OBD2 automotive product design makes the best use of technology advancements in connectivity, data analytics and artificial intelligence. Among many applications, vehicle diagnostics is one of the most popular. This project started with an inspirational vision by the client. Our product design activity started with understanding the requirements with the help of a mind map.
This was followed up with a QMI [quick market intelligence] research.
Next in the course was product development and our team had to ensure that the clients aspirations are covered. Hence a wide variety of concepts were done to capture their interest.
Concept Refinement [below].
One of the concepts were selected and refined for client presentation.
This lead to the engineering team to get into focus.
Several iterations were done on the CAD, before the team deciding to go for the first cut prototyping.
We design team found great opportunity for space optimisation and started working on the form once again. This time, the team had to trade off the aesthetics with the functional requirements.
This time, the team was able to achieve the right fit. Once again its time to validate the design. Few grey areas were the glowing logo and the CMF.
Prototyping at our manufacturing partner in Xiamen, China.Finally, the product is tested and validated.
