Batwing is a rain shelter device installed on top of the bus door, which can be opened together with the door. The inspiration of design originated from the bat wing and the structural of Chinese traditional folding fan. This device mainly consists of two parts. The upper part is fixed on top of the bus door. The two sides of the built-in plastic film are fixed in two plates. The bottom part can conduct arc motion via the fixed point on the left side, and open the plastic film. After being fully opened, this device will form a semicircle umbrella. Hence, when passengers are getting on the bus they will not get wet by the rain.
