Co-create Autonomous and Connected Vehicles [DROP-IN]

  • Ontario Science Centre 770 Don Mills Road North York, ON, M3C 1T3 Canada (map)

Why learn about Autonomous and Connected Vehicles?
You’ve probably heard about self-driving vehicles in the news lately. They are the future of transportation and many are integrating computerized navigation, sensors, and functions into their automation. In the future we will use our smart phones, and other digital devices to communicate with new automated modes of transportation. Co-create with Daily Goods Design LABS (DGDL), vehicles that people really need.

During the session, you’ll learn the following:

  • Learn more about Daily Goods Design LABS’ human-centred, design-thinking approach and how to apply it to create innovative design

  • Understand the role you can play during the design process while being encouraged to try multiple approaches to the same problem

  • Define how people (when wearing garments or carrying accessories), can interact and connect with and within C/AV through scenarios you imagine

  • Explore the various uses of C/AV plus when, where and why will people use these in the first place

  • How to prototype a design using paper and cardboard templates. Personalize and customize your own designs according to the want-and-need scenarios you’ve imagined

Who is it for?

  • Suitable for young and old - a variety of templates and learning approaches are available

  • People who want to learn more about DGDL’s specialized design process and the designer’s role within it

  • Those wanting to learn more about interactions with C/AV modes of transportation

Note: All children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Typical duration of session is: 0.5 hour
