來自卡爾頓大學工業設計學院的四個學生組成的團隊,贏得了加拿大汽車零件製造商協會(APMA)的加拿大Project Arrow設計競賽,擊敗了來自加拿大各地其他20個參賽者作品。 卡爾頓大學團隊的設計將用於製造完整的零排放的概念車。

卡爾頓大學校長Benoit-Antoine Bacon說:“我們為這個團隊以及他們贏得這場比賽所展現的非凡的創造力,創新和辛勤工作感到無比自豪。” “正如我們在新的戰略整合計劃中明確指出的那樣,這是卡爾頓大學如何在我們的學術計劃和研究中為實現可持續性而努力的一個很好的例子。”

該車以小型運動型及多功能車為基礎,將通過包括加拿大世界級汽車供應部門在內的共同努力進行設計和製造。為了響應加拿大總理杜魯多至2050年實現零排放的呼籲,Project Arrow將匯集加拿大最好的電力驅動、替代燃料、互聯、自動和輕量級技術公司。

“對於卡爾頓大學及其學生Kaj Hallgrimsson、Kun-Won Kim、Mina Morcos和Matthew Schuetz來說,選擇他們的設計作為加拿大向零排放汽車發展的燈塔,這是一個驕傲而具有歷史意義的時刻,APMA首席技術官 Colin Singh Dhillon說, “對於所有學生來說,學習和成長的水平必須是巨大的。”

在COVID-19大流行期間,學生在完成課程和實習期間的短短12週內完成了比賽的設計。該設計基於自由,穩定和簡單的概念,旨在適合加拿大的生活方式,包括天氣條件和家庭需求。明年,學生及其新的合作夥伴希望也可以創建汽車的虛擬版本。

工業設計項目主管Bjarki Hallgrimsson說:“這是一個學生自主完成的課外項目,這使它印象深刻。” “學生的作品展示了他們在計劃中接受的教育和培訓的影響。 卡爾頓大學學生的心態非常雄心勃勃,並以整體思維為中心。他們不僅在樣式或製造方面進行工作,還考慮了設計中的許多其他方面,包括便捷性,可用性和可持續性。”

隨著北美市場進入由“ ACES”(自主,互聯,電力,共享)驅動的新的汽車時代,Project Arrow通過匯集加拿大頂級供應鏈,將汽車技術公司、汽車製造商和學術機構結合在一起。 “Project Arrow”立足於成功汽車行業及先進的製造基礎,其目標是建立一個更具附加價值,以技術為中心的基礎,推動新的汽車時代。該基礎將成為鼓勵加拿大及其他地區製造商投資的基礎,以在加拿大汽車技術生態系統中開發其下一代產品和技術。

A team of four students from Carleton University’s School of Industrial Design won the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA) of Canada Project Arrow design competition, beating out 20 other entries from across Canada. The Carleton team’s design will be used to create an original, full-build, zero-emission concept vehicle.

“We are all incredibly proud of this team and of the remarkable creativity, innovation and hard work they showed to win this competition,” said Carleton President Benoit-Antoine Bacon. “This is a wonderful example of how Carleton strives for sustainability across our academic programs and research, as we state clearly in our new Strategic Integrated Plan.”

The vehicle, based on a small sports utility vehicle, will be designed, engineered and built through a joint effort that includes Canada’s world-class automotive supply sector. Answering Prime Minister Trudeau’s call for a zero-emissions future by 2050, Project Arrow will bring together the best of the best of Canada’s electric-drive, alternative-fuel, connected and autonomous and light-weight technology companies.

“This is a proud and historic moment for Carleton and its students, Kaj Hallgrimsson, Jun-Won Kim, Mina Morcos and Matthew Schuetz, to have their design chosen as a lighthouse for Canada’s shift into zero-emission vehicle development,” said Colin Singh Dhillon, CTO of the APMA. “The level of learning and growth must have been tremendous for all the students.”

The students completed the design for the competition in just 12 weeks during the COVID-19 pandemic while completing courses and working at internships. The design was based on the concepts of freedom, stability and simplicity and is intended to fit Canadian lifestyles, both in terms of the weather conditions and family needs. Over the next year, the students and their new partners hope to also create a virtual version of the car.

“This was an extracurricular project the students did on their own accord, which makes it so impressive,” said Bjarki Hallgrimsson, director of the Industrial Design program. “The students’ work shows the influence of the education and training they received in the program. The mindset of Carleton students is very ambitious and centered on holistic thinking. Rather than just working on styling or manufacturing, they considered many other aspects in their design, including accessibility, general usability and sustainability.”

As the North American market enters a new automotive era that is driven by “ACES” (Autonomous, Connected, Electric, Shared), Project Arrow showcases the capability of Canada’s automotive supply sector by bringing together Canada’s top supply chain, auto-tech companies and academic institutions. Project Arrow builds on the auto sector’s successful, advanced manufacturing roots, with a goal to establish a more value-added, technology-centered foundation that is ready to drive a new automotive age. This foundation will be the bedrock that will encourage investments from manufacturers in Canada and beyond to develop their next-gen product and technologies within the Canadian automotive technology ecosystem.
