Med-eV delivery robot

Med-EV is an electric autonomous delivery robot that delivers various medicines to people's homes.

Current State of Delivery Robots

Today most delivery robots fall under the category of Street delivery robots. They tend to have a very limited range and capacity. Only working in small areas. At the same time, they have not been able to deliver efficiently since they delivery one item at a time which can cause problems when demand is high.

DemoGraphic

With a rising population and hospitals getting more expensive and filled up, more and more people are starting to go with
the Hospital at Home system to save time and money for the patient. This robot is targeted to help those who chose to be treated from home. 

Use Case

This would be mainly use in Urban and Suburban areas since there is a larger ratio of people per square mile which help the robot reach more people.

Research

Hospital at home programs allow patients to receive treatment at home. It can cut the cost of care by 30 percent or more. At the same time medicines will usually be shipped my mail or delivered by nurse. This causes an inefficient use of staff or a delay due to mail processing.

Sketches

Phase 1:

Looking to develop a personality for the overall form that would make it inviting and easily approachable. At the same time began to look at the relations of the shapes of the lights and what emotions they represented.

Phase 2:

Began on the literal side and began moving to more subtle cues.Moved to a van style to fit in as many products in one journey. At the same time manufacturing began to play a role how I began to shape it.

Phase 3:

Began to work out the minor details and how people would receive their packages from the robot. Continued to ideate not headlight and back light configurations
