Safety in Focus
Paper in proceeding, 2007

In Gothenburg approximately 300 accidents involving falling in public transportation vehicles are reported annually. This paper presents the work of investigating the problem situation as well as illustrating and communicating the user requirements through design concepts of tram and bus interior. In earlier projects initiated by the assigner a list of user requirement has been the final result. There has, however, been difficulties regarding transforming the requirements into solutions. Therefore, in this project, design concepts were developed in order to illustrate the requirements. This gave a more holistic and less traditional view of possible solutions to the problem.
