The purpose of the project module is to introduce students to the development of interactive physical products that can make everyday life easier in various ways, such as robots and products with built-in intelligence including movement, simple electronic control, interface and mechanical solutions are integrated as part of its functionality and aesthetics. In the project, emphasis is placed on working with an original, innovative solution at a balanced technical-aesthetic level, where experiences from the course modules are integrated into concept development or detailing of the project. The project module integrates workshop activities that support physical interaction design with a specific focus on the design and programming of interactive physical products.The topic of the project could be designing kitchen utilities, dispensers, garden tools, personal aids or toys. The product proposal is developed with extensive use of different types of models such as function models, vision models and detailed models. Particular emphasis is placed on the interplay between an investigative, testing and reflective methodology and an iterative process.
The student is expected to spend 27.5 hours per ECTS, which for this activity means 550 hours.
