PROBLEM

Due to the extensive work hours, coach drivers utilize their driver seat as their secondary home to live in. The drivers would gather their personal belongings and essential items such as portable radio, then place them around their seats. Some may perceive their seats to be filthy and messy

Due to such circumstances, the drivers sometimes may have trouble finding their belongs when needed. Additional, thievery is another issue for the drivers. For example, when the driver leave their bus to visit a rest stop, they may find some of their belongings stolen by the time they get back to the bus.

IDEATION

To resolve those issues, I propose to design a work bag that provide organization and protection. This bag can be packed easily, and placed on the driver seat.

FINAL MODEL

A curvature was utilized on the right side of the bag in order to enable opening it more easily.

The strap is made from a seat belt like material, designed to slide easily over clothes, and it doesn’t bunch up on your shoulder as some straps do

WORK BAG

A logo named "KAI" is originally named after a coach driver named Kai Semmelmann. The triangular logo on the bag resembles the pattern on their seat.

The front pocket of the bag is a space for storing extra clothes, towels, and socks for drivers. The reason why I put this clothing storage space at the front of the bag is that when the bag is placed on the driver's seat, the driver's legs are placed on it. Because drivers do not have to change their clothes while driving, the clothing storage space is designed so that it is located under the legs where their hands are out of reach. I also put a layer of sponge in the cover to make the driver's seat comfortable

Bus drivers' work bags can be easily attached to their seats by helping bus drivers arrange their seats.

FOLDING THE SEAT OF BAG

MAGNET

HOOK

There are four magnets on each angle of the seat for folding it easily

The hook goes to the gap between the driver seat and the backrest for stable placing the bag on the driver seat.

PLACING ON DRIVER SEATS

With ample pockets for organization, and optional flexible dividers, this bag fits a coach driver's essential driving order, a charger, phone, wallet, and plenty of other personal belongings. Even fully-loaded, the Hook point makes it stable to keep it on the driver seat.
