Needs and Criteria
The design of the locomotive’s body is in a way that makes it aesthetically pleasing, rigid enough, and with minimum distraction factors for the driver. It should be resistant to the possible obstacles and may sway it out of its rail. The train’s interior has all the necessary tools installed, but the design is not over-complex; the driver can push the buttons and use the handles, etc., as smoothly and quickly as possible.
All the cameras and mirrors installed at the optimum locations help the driver control the locomotive as safely as possible while still considering their comfort.
The mining site is generally a hazardous setting, which makes the locomotive’s operator prone to various accidents; As industrial designers, we tried to consider these accidents and design a solution for each of these hazardous factors.
One of the aspects of transportation design is the exterior of the vehicle. The locomotive’s body is designed firmly and won’t be affected by hazardous factors such as rocks and unintentional obstacles that are on its way. This locomotive won’t be swayed out of the rails and is not prone to accidents. It will push away all the hazardous objects out of their way and keep on a steady pace without any hardships.
