Bazza Design case study Automotive Wireless Charging Station

  1. 1. Case Study: Automotive Wireless Charging Station
  2. 2. Case Study: Automotive Wireless Charging Station Design Research Concept Development 3D Design Modeling Color Rendering Program Management Project Brief: Fulton Innovation (a division of Amway) was looking for someone to help coordinate the look and feel of a show property they planned to build and display at the Consumer Electronics Show in January of 2011. Bazza Design was selected to help coordinate the design and integration of Fulton’s e-coupled wireless charging capability into automotive instrument panel. Working along side of Fulton’s engineers and model makers Bazza Design defined and refined a wireless charging station for use in a Tesla Roadster. Using Fulton’s patented wireless charging technology Bazza Design developed a linear unit that conveniently fit into the storage rail that was part of the instrument panel. The charging station could fit just about any sized phone or MP3 player in one compartment and a Bluetooth ear bud in an adjacent compartment. The feature, when paired with wireless charging devices like cell phones and or i-pod like products, allows for easy charging of a device without plugging it into a wired scenario.

  3. 3. Case Study: Automotive Wireless Charging Station Research Tesla Roadster measurements and details were documented for the research phase. With no CAD data, eventual 3D would be created from hand measurements, and adjusting of 3D on the fly from quick 3D printed models.
  4. 4. Case Study: Automotive Wireless Charging Station Concept Development 2D Illustrator work was generated to show context and variation of form and features. Concept Illustrations / Form Studies / Feature Layout in variation
  5. 5. Case Study: Automotive Wireless Charging Station Concept Refinement Additional 2D Illustrator work was created in variation, from selected designs in the previous phase.
  6. 6. Case Study: Automotive Wireless Charging Station Concept Refinement Surfaces were created and evaluated by creating 3D prints of the model for a fit check into the vehicle rail. Visual Gaps were identified and revised in the 3D model
  7. 7. Case Study: Automotive Wireless Charging Station 3D Release A final 3D model was created and handed over for creation of the physical prototype. 3D Rendering / Final Surface Release to Prototype
  8. 8. Case Study: Automotive Wireless Charging Station 3D Release Photo Realistic Renderings
  9. 9. Case Study: Automotive Wireless Charging Station Finalization of Prototype Working Prototype of the design installed at the 2011 CES show in the Fulton Innovation booth.
