Aviraj Cheema

My name is Aviraj Cheema, but I like to go with Avi to keep it simple and I am an Industrial Design graduate residing in Toronto. I always was the odd one out in my family, wasn’t interested in sports, politics, or any other boring stuff because I would either be sketching or building something out of anything I could find and be lost in my own creative world. This pushed me toward the Industrial Design program at Humber, opening doors to whole new creative disciplines such as graphic design, photography, interaction design, and more. I had the opportunity to work with many clients and intern with an amazing company, teaching me about the industry methods and processes. My passion for design will help layout my path to success.

The Four Essential Pillars for Design Excellence

The four essential pillars encompass human-centric design approach and the understanding of full-bodied, three dimensional physical interaction of user, product and environment. The projects generate innovative solutions using research-driven, evidence-based designs which focus on the user experience.

Enhancement of Human Lifestyle

Tyren uses its onboard AR system that works injunction with the drone to observe, detect, analysis and, provide solutions to all types of obstacles on the road while officers are responding to incoming calls.

By providing route adjustments to obstructions, officers can decrease response times in congested areas to provide help to whoever needs them effectively and quickly.

Human-Interaction & User-Centric Design

Tyren fulfills all the elements of full-bodied human interaction design, incorporating many human touchpoints into the design such as the interior cabin, the safety elements in the door, and the rear storage containment area.

Increasing work productivity, organization of external tools and equipment, and maximizing safety for police officers are areas in which Tyren’s confidentially excels.

Ergonomics & Human Factors Design

Tyren utilizes a human-centered design approach, inspiring to be more ergonomic and mindful of users when in use for long durations.

The interior cabin provides a spacious workstation that can be utilized via touch and voice controls to complete repetitive tasks more effectively and making communication with dispatch and other units easier.

Sustainability & Social Responsibility

Tyren boasts itself on providing an environmentally friendly mode of transportation for law enforcement officers, using lithium-ion batteries to power the in-hub motors, while the solar panels on the roof power the internal electronics and sensors.

Using recyclable materials and processes for the tires and interior fabrics such as Econyl fibers for the seating and floor fabrics, Tyren could lead law enforcement to more greener methods.

TYREN - Law Enforcement Urban Mobility

Project Summary

As population increases and are migrating towards urban cities, the activities of humans are posing more obstacles for police officers that patrol the roads of the city, the increase of vehicles on the road, smaller roads and bike lanes, construction, large vehicles in condensed areas, and harsh weather conditions decrease the mobility of police officers when they are responding to calls. Current vehicles that are used by police officers are too large and are unable to use main roads when travelling at high speeds due to traffic congestions which also puts the safety of pedestrians and officers at risk when vehicular accidents occur. Officers are forced to use unconventional routes to reach their destination such as alleyways, building garages and residential roads, thus increasing their response time. The current response time is 15 minutes for high priority calls, when the standard provincial time is nine minutes. The success of their investigation highly depends on how fast they can reach the scene to prevent contamination, crowd control and possibly catching the suspect. The purpose of thesis is to do in-depth study of daily protocols and challenges facing officers. Using data collection methods such as interviews and observational studies of officers using current solutions, a detailed analysis could be conducted focusing on the impact of the obstacles on the duties of police officers. To evaluate the ergonomics, a one-to-one scale buck that illustrates the workspace and tools that officers currently use can establish proper human factors and full-bodied human interaction design. A solution will be developed for police officers, to improve mobility to decrease response times, and provide protection to the common citizen.

Thesis Summary Motion Presentation

TYREN: law enforcement urban mobility vehicle

Tyren is a law enforcement urban mobility vehicle, designed to help police officers mitigate challenges and obstacles faced when responding to calls in dense city environments by providing external guidance that can predict, observe and analyze spontaneously for better smaller response times.

3D Design Development & Modeling

CAD Modeling Video

CAD model of the TYREN vehicle

The CAD development for Tyren was done in Solidworks 2021 and rendered in Keyshot 10.

Physical Model Video

3D render of the TYREN vehicle

The final model of Tyren was 3D printed using SLA process and resin. after countless hours of sanding, painting, and finishing the model was ready to present itself at the thesis show. The model shows the interior cabin features and external features as well.
