About the job
Next generation automotive trunk storage
The electrification of vehicles may impact available luggage space. The solutions of today could be improved in terms of features to store luggage in smart ways. There is also room for improvement in terms of design and material with regard to cleaning etc.
The objective is to investigate new possibilities for trunk storage regarding ease of use, developing and improving the product with respect to customer satisfaction and legal requirements.
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 trunk storage 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 the specific needs of the target markets, establishing target specifications, generating suitable concepts as well as selecting one or more concepts for final evaluation
A report including:
