BA (Hons) Automotive and Transport
Questa is an autonomous, electric Grand Tourer designed to tackle anxiety using escapism, self-reflection, and socialisation. This is achieved by using sensory deprivation technology on a typical continental tour journey, and ensuring an exhilarating driving experience.
Productivity is directly linked to cognitive-wellbeing and is proven to improve with self-care. I believe it is imperative to use the opportunity given to us via autonomy to improve our lifestyle, not just to travel from A to B. Questa uses innovative technology from the aerospace, rail and audio industries to provide a sensory-dampening environment for the occupant to experience REST (Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy), capitalising on the time otherwise wasted while commuting.
Exploration and escapism influenced my decision to design a Grand Tourer as I was able to create a vehicle that could adjust with the driver’s mood between autonomy and full driver engagement. I realised that the vehicle could be used as a tool to socialise with like-minded people in the dreiver's continent by taking part in organised, driving-related activities and general tourism.
