I explored the contexts of transporting an infant and found many pain points during the transition between the home, vehicle, and public spaces.
Pain Points & Safety
Most parents sit their child in a rear-side seat because it's convenient for loading and less straining on the body. But what they don't understand is that the "crumple zone" is much smaller and dangerous in a rear-side seat than the middle seat.
I sought out a way to merge convenience of side-loading and safety of sitting in the middle seat. This included brainstorms around mechanisms & technologies that could be appropriated to solve the problems.
