(mentor) Faculty Industrial Design Engineering Department Industrial Design Programme Master of Science Integrated Product Design Date 2013-04-23 Abstract During this thesis a personal mobility concept has been developed, which bridges the gap between existing means of transportation. By making it easy for the user to cover this “first- and last mile” with the concept, urban mobility I improved. The thesis focused on a practical solution and therefore the concept was designed with daily use in mind. In order to do that successfully, the concept should be able to adapt to the different surrounding within the context. Therefore, the folding mechanism was developed in such a way that it makes different modes of use possible. For this thesis, we focused on the following 4 modes of use: 1: Driving mode 2: Shopping mode 3: Trolley mode 4: Storage mode To realize this, a folding mechanism was developed that makes the concept easily portable and offers more added value for the user.
