/ 01 OVERVIEW
This project introduces an innovative approach to gas mask design, addressing the limitations of traditional models. The newly developed intelligent gas mask incorporates advanced features such as real-time monitoring of external gas composition and concentration, on-site photography capabilities, and remote connectivity with other devices. Complemented by a mobile app, it enables users to monitor equipment status, establish remote calls, record photographic data, and pinpoint geographical locations.
/ 02 RESEARCH
Survey results show that traditional gas masks have the following disadvantages:
1. Be unable to accurately detect the usage of consumables (72%).
2. Be unable to understand conditions of external gas (86%);
3. The equipment is heavy, making it hard to communicate (80%).
/ 03 USAGE SCENARIOS
Gas masks are widely used in military, petrochemical, fire fighting, sanitation and epidemic prevention and other aspects.
/ 04 INITIAL SKETCH
I conducted innovative sketch designs building upon the foundation of traditional gas masks, exploring and enhancing their features.
/ 05 3D MODELING
Upon finalizing the sketches, I proceeded with 3D modeling for product development.
The gas mask utilizes lightweight materials and is equipped to monitor external gas composition and concentration, capture on-site photos, and establish remote connections with other equipment.
/ 06 EXPLOSION DIAGRAM
This is the comprehensive explosive diagram illustrating the product design. The gas mask comprises protective eyewear, a filter mask, one-way outlet/inlet valve, functional buttons, filter elements, a wireless handset, and an oxygen storage unit.
/ 07 USER INTERFACE
The gas mask offers wireless remote connectivity with other masks and mobile phones, addressing the challenge of direct verbal communication for bulky devices. The accompanying mobile app facilitates real-time monitoring, remote calls, device shooting data recording, and geographical location tracking, among other features.
01 Performance and Usage Detection
The content displays the gas mask's connectivity status, airtightness, and oxygen supply through indicator lights (green for optimal, red for issues), along with filter element performance and usage details. It further detects external gas composition, marking harmful gases.
02 Real-Time Connectivity
The gas mask enables real-time connectivity with fellow mask users, displaying online staff communication, an equipment address book, and call details such as talking status and duration. Additional features include the ability to add communicators, adjust call volume, and activate the camera.
03 On-Site Recordings
The gas mask can record on-site footage, and the interface displays live images and videos captured by the mask in chronological order.
04 Live Geo-Location Connectivity
The gas mask, when connected, displays its current geographic location through a green equipment sign, providing real-time monitoring of its physical whereabouts.
