Autonomous Pedestrian Interfaces for Community Networking
Here’s Leonardo Amerigo Bonanni’s Masters Thesis at MIT exploring the design of a street furniture system to provide autonomous computer kiosks in the form of bus stops, public bathrooms, atms and other shelters. Nice modular and adaptive designs but unfortunately their isn’t any futher details of the project online. Here’s some pictures instead.
The basic module is a four-seat bench showing the adjustable keyboards that double as seats and the skinning of the building with information and thin-film photovoltaics. A single shelter can serve multiple users and functions over the course of the day.
