Old and new cabin design
The new design has better visibility thanks to the large windscreen. Visibility is crucial for the operator to handle the slag pots safely. Overall comfort, ergonomics and layout of controls are other main improvements of the new cabin.
Todays slag hauler and driver cabin
We joined the operators during their work day to observe and learn about their situation.
Another important part was interviews with different stakeholders to get their perspective and thoughts.
Workshops with design students
To get ideas from non-biased people outside the project
We made several models during the project, from simple cardboard layouts in order to test space and reach, to more advanced prototyping methods later in the project.
Many hours were spent in the workshop building the final prototype.
The final prototype
The project delivery was a full scale prototype of the drivers cabin.
