Contextual Cluster for Drivers and Mechanics
Founded in 1897, Autocar builds three models of custom-engineered, heavy duty trucks. That’s right–garbage trucks! My colleagues and I were tasked with designing a digital cluster for a line of these monstrous vehicles.
I started the research by grabbing my GoPro and taking a ride with Kevin, a garbage man. Through rigorous questioning and observation, I was able to document a personal perspective of Kevin’s daily struggles and triumphs alike. The other portion of this project addresses the mechanics that gather diagnostics these clusters.
Through empathy and understanding of the users, we developed three cluster concepts that are proudly used in their trucks today!
