  3. 3. My name is Apurba Pawar. I have recently graduated with an MFA in Advanced Product Design at UID (Umeå Institute of Design) in collaboration with the Volvo Group. I specialise in Product Design, which includes elements of user experience, interaction design, research & form giving. During my journey I have been lucky to work with some great people at Designit (Copenhagen), Teams Design (Chicago) and GE Healthcare (Bangalore) during my internships. Design for me is to be curious, to learn and to experiment. To form the most obvious and meaningful experiences, be it through an object or service and bring joy to our lives. HELLO, A.L.A.M.

The design process for each project is unique although it still goes through the cycle of data gathering, ideation and development with feedback from the user. Following are glimpses of the some design methods used during my design studies.
  5. 5. NIOX* Home Asthma Management at Home There is a growing number of asthmatics globally. Young & busy people tend to neglect their condition which can lead to serious problems, and simultaneously diminishing their lifestyle and activities. NIOX Home is a compact device for managing asthma at home. It aims to help the individual take control of their condition and enable a better quality of life BENEFITS: NIOX Home uses technology developed by Aerocrine to monitor the Nitric Oxide (NO) levels in exhaled breath as an indicator to the condition of asthma. It can recognise an impending attack or worsening of condition. Then remind the user to take regular medication and care, which in turn reassures the individual of being ‘incontrol’ and prevents further deterioration of their condition. 2011 Umeå Institute of Design. In collaboration with Aerocrine AB, Sweden Duration: 8 weeks *Trademark of Aerocrine AB Enabling a positive and ‘in control’ lifestyle for people with asthma

  8. 8. LINK 500 CONCEPTRAILTRACKLAYER Indian Railways has grown 10-fold in the last 50 years, but rail track length has only increased 1.4 times & construction methods have hardly changed. The aim was to design the future of railway-track construction in developing countries. Volvo LINK 500 is a vehicle which lays prefabricated concrete slabs cyclically along a GPS mapped route. Minimizing operator error & increasing efficiency. Manual workforce is still involved in the rough work of placing dowels, which serve as GPS locators/slab guides. BENEFITS Unlike traditional excavators, the structure of this vehicle allows it to pass over a material-carrying train. It is cheaper, easier to assemble & transport than current solutions, & requires no auxiliary track because it uses pneumatic tyres. 2013 Masters Thesis Project at Umeå Institute of Design in collaboration with Volvo Group, Sweden. Duration: 17 weeks Making railway tracks easier, safer and faster to construct in emerging economies like India
  9. 9. DESIGN METHODS Ballast Track Contextual research On site observation Interviews Validation with experts Worker safety Quality Time ! ! 3 sites in India 10 days 10 expert interviews Neelon Bengaluru Pune ! Ballasted track is a tried and tested method, but it is not the perfect method and it needs to be replaced with a better one. Slab tracks are safer, low maintenance, can handle heavier & faster trains and are cost effective in the long term. Slab Track RESEARCH VIDEO “Manual system is just continuing because of requirement of less capital for contractor and simplicity of operation, in spite of bad quality.” - Mr. Manoj Arora, Sr. Track Engg., Indian Railways INDIA

  19. 19. COROMETRICS* Fetal Monitor Internship & BA Graduation Project** Corometrics is a Fetal Monitor (FM) that examines the condition of the baby in the uterus by noting unusual changes in its heart rate. It is used by Obstetricians/ Gynecologists for pregnant women and the expected child. BENEFITS: Corometrics is a compact and versatile FM that can be used in rural clinics (portable application) & big hospitals (stationary). It is a simplified version which is intuitive to use for midwives and for doctors. Basic needs such as ergonomics, legibility of data output and non-imposing nature of the machine has been considered for both the care-giver and for the mother. 2009 Bachelors Thesis Project at National Institute of Design. In collaboration with GE Healthcare, Global Design Centre, Bengaluru, India. Duration: 15 weeks *Registered trademark of GE Healthcare **Details of the project have been withheld, being a confidential project, copyright of GE Healthcare. * Simulated Setup A versatile fetal monitor that can be used in rural clinics & the hospital
  20. 20. DESIGN METHODS Home scenario Hospital scenario Pregnant Woman Fetal monitor Hospital visit and observations Cables mess Accessories/ Consumable storage? Ergonomics! Placement and positioning Observations during monitoring User Studies Private hospital, government hospital and private small clinics were visited to understand the different contexts and procedures. This gave a real world idea of what was needed and experience the product in use. Fish-bone diagram & QFD (Quality function deployment) Analysis The above mentioned techniques were used to analyse data and reach the core needs by comparing user expectations to the product requirements. PROBLEM/OPPORTUNITY IDENTIFICATION: Cable mess Restricts mother’s movements and uncomfortable Portability of instrument is low How to manage print graph User Interface needs to be improved Introduction of accessories to bridge gap between system and user DESIGN REQUIREMENTS: An adaptable (LED/LCD) display for better visibility Portability (inter and intra hospital) Writing surface for print out Easy to upgrade Display and controls should be simple to understand and use Usage Scenarios The new fetal monitor (FM) would aim to bridge the gap between home care vs. hospital care.
  21. 21. CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT Concept 3 The issue of cable management was addressed by providing space within the product where the cables could be wound. The form was made to be modern looking. A variation of this concept was taken forward. Concept 2 This concept was aimed at providing space to hold accessories (sensors, straps, U/s gel etc.) at the back and be more portable. The form was visually soft and the screen could be adjusted at certain fixed angles. Concept 1 A vertical family of fetal monitors is rare as it looks bulky and screen adjustment is complex. This concept was tried out as it provides safer mobility and space for storage. Initial Ideation Initially different configurations and ideas were sketched in paper and foam. Out of these 3 were developed into sketches to be taken forward into the foam mock-up stage. KEY SKETCH FOAM PROTOTYPE

  25. 25. A.L.A.M An Intelligent Alarm Clock Restless when you wake up? Traditional alarm clocks have repetitive & unnatural sounds & can wake you up at the wrong time, encouraging a ‘SNOOZ-A-HOLIC’ attitude. A.L.A.M is an alarm clock that wakes you up gradually and gently. Designed for busy professional and urban-dweller who is always on-the-go. BENEFITS: A.L.A.M. wakes you up gradually over a period of time using light and varying sound based on themes you select. It monitors your sleep and helps you wake up feeling rested and refreshed. 2011 Umeå Institute of Design. Team project with Lynn Bui, Alexis Morin & Melanie Becker. Duration: 3 weeks An alarm clock to help you get the rest you deserve 22:06 17FEB 2011 MTOTF LS MTOTF LS 07:24 10:30
  26. 26. CONCEPT A.L.A.M Features The alarm sounds and lights are synced and help the person wake up naturally. The sleep monitoring chip helps wake you up at the lightest sleep stage. Light intensity adjustment Touch interface Diffused light source (from backside) Speakers Alarm Sound Progression Layered alarms are chosen by theme and start with one sound adding multiple sounds to complete the sounds picture. Example below demonstrates ‘sea beach theme’. Time Single sound Complete sound picture Water splashing + Waves + Seagulls + Fishing boat + Beach people + Loud tanker horn Sleep sensor chip (fits in mattress) Sleep Cycle Monitoring An accelerometer synced to a smart phone app. (e.g. iPhone sleep cycle app.) monitors the movement during sleep and activates the alarm during the lightest sleep stage. 22:06 17FEB 2011 MTOTF LS MTOTF LS 07:24 10:30

The sliding mechanism is provided incase the person wishes to drive off-centred for better access to the mail box. FEATURES Can slide to either side Plane surface and personal items storage Display with GPS & data storage Articulating Steering Straight handle option Steering Control The steering comes with a GPS guiding system. This is for new mail routes. Also the device stores data of mail being carried and can be used to update new addresses. For the steering there are two possibilities, one is the straight handle and the other is bent when cruising at a fixed speed.
  32. 32. Jonsered ‘DO’ Electric Screwdriver The focus was on parametric modelling and rapid prototyping for production. The object chosen was an electric screwdriver, and the brand - Jonsered (Swedish Mfg. Company). Aimed for home usage and a person with do-it-yourself attitude who needs a no nonsense, dependable product. Jonsered currently doesn’t produce electric screwdrivers and the idea was to try to design keeping in mind the brand values of Jonsered while at the same time adding some value to the product. Eventually to take it from sketch, to Solidworks, export for rapid prototyping and have a working prototype. Its a basic electric screwdriver with contemporary styling and an added feature - an extra bit holder. 2011 Umeå Institute of Design. Duration: 3 weeks Jonsered forays into the home market with ‘DO’ the electric screwdriver
  33. 33. CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT Final concept sketch Bit holder Time challenge 14 Hrs From disassembling the off the shelf screwdriver, brand analysis, sketching to foam modelling the time was constrained within a 14 hr. limit. Foam Mock-ups Variations of foam mock-ups were made and tested on different hand sizes to get the optimum proportions, ergonomics and desired aesthetics 3-D Modeling The Surfaces were built in Alias then the internal structure and assembly modelled in Solidworks. Finaly Netfabb was used to fix the *.stl files from Solidworks for rapid prototyping. Ideation Sketching Ideas were visualised and proportions and features drawn out
