Use Case: Emergency Vehicle
For emergencies within events or campuses that require extra storage for medical devices.
Use Case: Events
With some rewiring and programming, the compartment would be an effective outdoor portable speaker for large events or campaigns.
Use Case: Tourism
Tourism — the compact vehicles can serve as an effective touring mobility for private-owned venues, parks, etc.
Use Case: Hackathon
Universities can host hackathon programs to improve on this vehicle while sparking the creativity of young engineers.
Pairing trip planning with rideshare
To seamlessly embed the vehicle in the daily commute, I proposed an integrated navigation app that allows users to plan their last-mile experience and pair their devices with the vehicle as a broader ride share ecosystem.
