IXION Waste Truck
Abstract: IXION is a light-weight electric waste truck with customizable containers meant to ease solid waste transport. As Mexico Citiy’s streets become increasingly crowded and longer, traditional waste transport units become less fit with the urban transit. IXION proposes to develop light weight transports which can easily access densely populated areas. In doing so, it provides a multi-sortage configurable platform which can be customized to the neighborhood needs.
The truck concept also tackles the need for an easy hop on and off for operators who commonly ride on top of trucks posing dangerous situations for themselves.Role: Team Leader
