ENGINEERING ADVENTUREwww.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Open Innovation is an ecosystem Bloodhound SSC - A small innovative team, low budget, one common vision and using the right culture – designing something as complex as a ‘jet fighter’ for the next World Land Speed Record – 1000mph “People engage in radical innovation not because they get paid for it, but because they want to.” Gene Meieran, Intel Fellow.
ENGINEERING ADVENTUREwww.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Education – built on open principles Academia – Publication – key aspect - verification, - recognition, - education HE – more than just knowledge – know + how “Graduateness” – application / use Tension – Publish vs Patent ?
ENGINEERING ADVENTUREwww.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com IPO Fast Forward 2012 Project Brief Bloodhound SSC (www.bloodhoundssc.com) is a world land speed record project which will create novel technologies and processes to achieve its goal of 1,000mph. We have designed the ‘Bloodhound Open Access User Community Model’ (BOAUCM), where IP generated from the innovative design/engineering will, via HEIs and open-source methods, be made available to UK manufacturing, principally SMEs, to improve the manufacturing competitiveness of UK industry. The value of making the IP open-source (free to access) is that both education and industry can develop and adopt new technologies and processes that have been de-risked, and can use the Bloodhound vehicle as a reference to improve adoption and exploitation.www.bloodhoundssc.com BOAUCM has been promoted by the University of the West of England (UWE) and an open-access data repository to capture manufacturing and design knowledge and expertise for KE. This proposal seeks to accelerate the process of KE through key stages, including developing the Bloodhound community to critical mass, KE and dissemination practices, and creating 10 SME demonstrator projects. Outputs of the project include engagement with over 100 UK universities, dissemination to over 1,000 SMEs, and a proven model that can demonstrate sustainability and contribution to UK manufacturing competitiveness.
ENGINEERING ADVENTUREwww.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Special Interest Group (SIG): ‘Bloodhound@University’
ENGINEERING ADVENTUREwww.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Community tools need to be ‘Socially Friendly’ It needed simplifying… Early working names for the repository: Open Access User Community (OAUC)? Southampton Data Repository (SDR)? Bloodhound Open Access User Community (BHOAUC)? Its now called ‘K-Box’ http://bloodhound.eprints.org/index.html http://bloodhound.eprints.org/index.html (Derived from Knowledge (Data + Context) and HumBox an Ed- Share platform used by Universities)
ENGINEERING ADVENTUREwww.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Web Integration ‘K-Box’ now linked to the main Bloodhound SSC website http://www.bloodhoundssc.co m/education/bloodhounduniver sity http://www.bloodhoundssc.co m/education/bloodhounduniver sity (Bloodhound@University page)

ENGINEERING ADVENTUREwww.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Example K-Box Resource Bloodhound SSC aero data for all the simulations are now freely available in K-Box http://bloodhound.eprints.org/index.html
ENGINEERING ADVENTUREwww.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Bloodhound SSC Lower Chassis data is now available in K-Box Example K-Box Resource http://bloodhound.eprints.org/index.html
ENGINEERING ADVENTUREwww.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Requirement from the driver, Andy Green, to design a custom steering wheel for Bloodhound SSC. The last steering wheel from Thrust SSC was not very comfortable (pictured right.) Bloodhound SSC design evolution progressed along a conventional iterative design process Design was being driven by functional requirements and slow to evolve. We used Bloodhound@University to help come up with a faster, unconstrained design process. Lancaster University (Crowd Source Design) Example Collaborations
ENGINEERING ADVENTUREwww.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Working with Lancaster University, a 2 week project was launched which generated 25 new iterations and fundamentally changed the direction of the design philosophy. Lancaster University (Crowd Source Design) Example Collaborations
