Audi Q2
October, 2010
Subcompact vehicle for cities where space is scarce. (l=3,33m/w=1,74m/h=1,56) 2+1 seater tailored for your needs in the urban area...


Lamborghini - electric concept
February, 2010
(looking at the front) Wow, this must be a new Lamborghini car... hmm, wait a second (turning to the rear)... this looks strange, it doesn't look like a car at all! I think I'll buy some, maybe it's electric!


Audi RS7
February, 2009
Audi concept for more appeal and more flexibility conserning propulsion system- assembly. Like the sideplate on the Audi R8, the whole rear part of the Audi RS7, which contains the motorization, is a designfeature and very distinctive to other competitors. It´s aim is to make it easier and signalize the different engine configurations and compulsion varieties.
Headlights with new LED- technology, which are very typical for Audi-brand, are reduced to the maximum and "underline" the possibilities of this technology.


Ultima GTC
February, 2008
This project was about designing new bodyparts for the front and the rear based on the original Ultima GTR- chassis. I had to keep the middle part and build further things on from that. We worked on the aerodynamics, improved it and compared to the old bodykit we also wanted to cut down on weight, using "new" materials and production- procedures of the carbon fiber laminates. Therefore I needed exact data, so I had to scan it, to guarantee minimal fitting tolerance.
Later on, when I had the data, it turned out the actual car is asymmetric due to its "age". It varied up to 15mm and it was hard to make it stil look symmetric. So in reality I had to model two bodies after I had a logic and finished design.
In the first place all airoutlets where supposed to be extra-parts, which can be easily exchanged, but the productioncost of this bits were too high, so they are included within the big parts.


Roadrunner
June, 2007
Roadrunner is a truck for long-distance traffic in northamerican,- austrialian area. A "new" fuel is being used, Hydrogen. The concept is for the year 2020, when fossil fuels get short and expensive and allowed CO²- expulsion to zero. With this new drive propulsion system the whole package, a normal truck nowadays has, gets changed and switched. Nevertheless the truck is compatible with usual trailers and reloading points. This new approach is evident in the design and its appearance, so it´s a big gain when it comes to distinction, what was most important to me.
Furthermore the driver gets a new seating position. He is seating in the centre of the cabin and has more space in both directions. This is not only good for his comfort but also for better overview. During congestion he can trust his rear and front cameras, which also show the outside dimension of the truck. Since the cockpit moved to the middle, it´s possible to take in the front and make it more sweep, which is better concerning aerodynamics. Very important features of the truck are aerodynamic improvements for less air resistance and reduction of noise development.
The access to the cockpit or sleeper is just on one side, where there are steps instead of ´ladders´. With the asymmetric design I gained more space in the sleeper, which off course has included all needed equipment for a long journey. The big roof window lets much light inside and increases mood. Fuel-cell stacks, which propel ROADRUNNER, are under the cabin and the hydrogentanks in the rear behind a safety wall. Hydrogen can diffuse without entering the cabin.
The design of ROADRUNNER clearly reflects the product language of his future "Hollywood influenced" target group and with its automotive surfacing there should be a strong distinction compared to actual trucks.

JR07
december, 2006
Interdisciplinary project with my automotive engineer colleagues. We worked together to concieve, contruct, design, produce, build, test and race this fast car. This was very good experience when it comes to work in a big group and relate to engineering, solving moulding problems and reduce the number of bodyparts to conserve the budget.

Dromas
June, 2006
In the future transportation will be a important topic. Sure, it will be no problem to transport goods from one city to the other, but what about areas that are hard to reach? People that live in those areas often suffer because of hunger, aridity, catastrophes such as for example earthquakes or flooding. Help comes often far too late for people that are affected by those circumstances. So we think there is a need to design a transporter that can be attached to this kind of problem.
Due to our task "heavy tools in motion" we had to refer to any science fiction movie of our choice. Therefor we chose Star Wars. The most impressive thing in the movie was the magnitude of all these vehicles and the area they drive in. That is the reason why dromas in the end is so big, but of course the concept (variable length & self-contained loading) can be downscaled to common roads. Our transporter can drive autarkic for a long distance. It can carry a up to 150 tons and is comparative fast (about 80 to 100 km/h).
The advantage to for example a helicopter, that can also support isolated areas is, that dromás can drive under every circumstances. No weather is too bad, no bedrock too bumpy. Dromás can also drive by night. Two pilots share their time in the cockpit to reach the destination quick. Due to modern technology dromás is able to navigate on the shortest way. On board we have a topology scanner. Underneeth the cockpit and the back cabin, the chain drive is assembled on an 360° turnable module. So dromás is able to drive sideways and can turn allover within its full length if terrain challenges. When dromás reaches its destination, an integrated lift can discharge the Cargocase (container) with out any addionial external machines. The cargocase has a protective underbody and 4 feet to adjust roughness. Now the two modules (cabine1 & cabine2) can connect together to get the next cargocase without having the full length of the vehicle.
On the surface we use two different colors. The cabin modules are coated with a metallic paint. In the model we left the colour of the cargocase in black, because every customer is able to brand with in its own CI. Some parts of the container are still painted in the same colour as the cabins. That fortifies togetherness and gives the impression, that the cargocase is held even more safely in between the two cabins.
