NASA Great Moonbuggy Race 2010
Designed and built a human powered vehicle to participate in NASA’s Great Moonbuggy Race in April 2010. I Worked in a team of fifteen RISD ID students working under professor/mentor Michael Beresford. With students from a variety of backgrounds and skill base, the team was split into teams for Seating, Chassis, Drive Train, and Suspension. I was part of the Seating team with 3 other students.

The Human Powered Vehicle must:


Seating

After research, mock-ups, testing and collaboration, we determined the position, angles and dimensions of the seats.

Seat Design and Fabrication

We designed the seat backs with a ridge through the middle for maximum stability with minimum thickness. We underwent many revisions, to find a balance between aesthetically pleasing and ergonomic. The seats were also sculpted to custom fit our pre-selected riders.

The final seats were made from four layers of carbon fiber with a 1/4” foam sandwiched in between.
