Hydraulic Rear Bumper Team 8 Bridget Fay, Jacob Barrientos, Joshua Lamb, Judah Jamison
Background Introduction ● What is Delphi automotive? ● Three goals of the Delphi company ● Delphi’s impact on your vehicle ● Impact of manufacturing ● Conclusion ● Group invention
Why Do This Project ● How can we expand on Delphi goals? ● Choose a category ● Create an idea and expand ● The hydraulic bumper
Mission Statement Our mission in this project is to improve the safety designs included in Delphi’s car design. We plan to do this by designing a type of external bumper that expands like an airbag in the case of the car being hit from behind in a collision.
Customer Needs Collection & Ranking We developed five first layer attributes that we felt were important to include for our customers ● Improve Safety ● Efficient ● Sturdy ● Aesthetically Pleasing ● Unobtrusive
Customer Needs Collection & Ranking Improve Safety ● Deploys only when hit by a car (not a human or a toy) ● Deploys when hit from behind ● Linked to go off when the airbags deploy ● Does not misfire
Customer Needs Collection & Ranking Efficient ● Prevents Injury ● Reacts Quickly ● Linked to Airbags ● Extends by one foot
Customer Needs Collection & Ranking Sturdy ● Can withstand High Speed Collisions ● High Quality Hydraulics ● Made of Steel or Plastic
Customer Needs Collection & Ranking Aesthetically Pleasing ● Sleek ● Aerodynamic ● Looks like a real bumper ● Matches car exterior
Customer Needs Collection & Ranking Unobtrusive ● Only deploys when needed ● Fits to the design of the car ● Compact ● Inconspicuous
Concepts Generation based on Customer Needs Through concept generation, we came up with a design that best satisfies all of our customer’s needs. We decided to develop a bumper using hydraulics with rounded edges, made out of steel and set to deploy when the airbags go off.
Prototype and Testing ● Bumper extends to increase “collision zone”. ● Shoots out by using hydraulic system ● Triggered by airbags ● Infrared sensor on the back calculates cars coming too fast from the rear and also triggers bumper
