About the job

Next generation automotive sun visor

Background
Vehicle function is one of the leading segments in innovation and component development. Despite this fact there is a component in the cockpit environment that has kept just about the same function design for various years - the sun visor. The main purpose of the sun visor is to increase visibility on the road by blocking the sunlight. However, the solution of today is limited as it only cover superior parts of the sun and its function is dependent on the head position of the driver and passengers.

Objective
The objective is to investigate the shortcomings of the sun visor as well as developing and improving the product with respect to customer satisfaction and legal requirements.

Methods
Study the theoretical background with focus on legal requirements and research within the subject to get a better understanding of the product and its limitations. Include system trends of the sun visor and investigate future functions as part of the literature study. Perform a pre-product development process based on the research result, i.e. defined system content, material, timing, FEM analyses and calculations. The process should include specifying needs of the target markets, establishing target specifications, generating suitable concepts as well as selecting one or several concepts for final evaluation.

Deliverables
A report including:

  • Trends and features in future cockpit referring to the sun visor as system component.
  • Final proposal(s) of next generation sun visor created in CAD including its hardware such as functions and typical sections.
  • Results and analysis of the outcome as well as ideas on future actions.
