Abstract [en]

This thesis is a cooperation with E.MIL Energi & Miljö, a company that mostly works with helping other companies to reduce and improve their usage of energy.

This project aims to develop a product which helps people, that due to different reasons, has reduced mobility to pick up belongings from the floor. It can be things like screws, pills and other stuff. The purpose of this project is to be able to produce a product that will solve this need without having the accuracy that is required by a gripper.

Two central questions have been addressed in the project:

1. How is the best way to produce a product that helps people to pick up things from the floor?

2. How does the design process look like when developing "Sugpellen"?

The methods that have been used is specifications for requirements, competitor analysis, screening, and finally the CAD model with 3D printed model and also a development of a prototype.

Two different kinds of solutions have been prepared which basically has the same ground functions. The product has a neck, filter, head, handle, fan and batteries. What separates the two alternatives with each other is that one of them has fifteen batteries which gives a more bigger and robust design. The other model has Lithium-Ion batteries that will be placed inside the handle and gives a smaller and more attractive design.

This product needs to be developed further before it is ready to enter the market. There are some things that still are missing before it is completely finished for instance strength analysis and material selection and also decide which types of batteries that should be used.
