Ideation

The CES demonstrator for KSS like all projects came with a list of design criteria and challenges. We were tasked with developing a two seat demonstrator with a short throw projector packaged behind the IP and storage for computer systems in the rear. This helped drive potential forms as we moved through  ideation giving KSS multiple styles and forms to choose from.

Concept Development

With a basic form established we began packaging the many pieces of KSS technology that were highlighted by the DMS. There are 2 driver monitoring cameras in the A-pillar, 3 informative touch screens in the IP, a KSS steering wheel with advanced capabilities and haptic feedback in the drivers seat. With all this innovation packaged we focused on wrapping it in an aesthetic package.
