Process

Prototyping

We began prototyping our physical model by sketching out different iterations of our smart parking meter.We then crafted a small-scale model using paper and tape. Our final prototype consisted of two core elements: the screen, created using laser-engraved acrylic and spray paint, and the main body, made with cardboard, featuring the logo engraved at the bottom.
