Redesign of a wireless remote control: Joystick for industrial environments
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
The present work has as aim the fulfilment of redesigning an existing housing for a wireless remote control. This project is carried out in cooperation with the company Tele-Radio AB, which develops, manufactures and markets radio control systems for industrial use. The new intended version must improve its predecessor by fulfilling detailed requirements and needs that have been researched throughout the project. The main followed method is the Engineering design process. It is compiled on the subsequent stages: definition of the problem, background study, requirement specifications, creative methods for generating ideas, concept selection, prototype and communication of results. In general, it has been developed a redesign version with bigger dimensions and implemented new features. These new features are focused on the top surface working area of the remote control; it has been designed with enough space for at least three joysticks and more than two switches of the same measures. Handles have experienced an enhancement in terms of ergonomics and also are adapted for being used whilst wearing industrial gloves. Innovative aesthetic and functionality have been taken into account.
