flow friction / Public Design

flow friction

When bus brakes or turns, people can hardly keep balance. Hence, we should add groove on the ground to reinforce friction. It is a way to guarantee the security as well both to the women who prefer wearing high-heeled shoes and guys who like wearing slippers. The ground is a round groove with high in middle and low sides. While the blind spot besides the car are two drainage tubes which are from high to low. And because of this kind of design, the rainwater brought in by people on rainy days can flow outside along the grooves and drainage tubes. By doing so, people can not only reduce the humidity within the car but also enhance security。
