―A CASE STUDY OF FOOT–CONTROLLED FAN DESIGN

The main object of this study is to discuss the tread-on image and the feasibility to apply tread-on image to step-over and control product design. The study is composed by 4 parts. Firstly, a survey is conducted in order to identify tread-on examples and analyze the structure of tread-on image. Secondly, using step-over and control fan switch design as an example to perform the image transformation, based on the classified tread-on examples in different tread-on formats. Combing with step-over and control mechanism, different type of step-over and control switches are designed and a image test is performed in order to verify the correlation between step-over and control image structure of fan switches and step-over and control switches and step-over and control images. The third part of this study discusses the cause-and-effect relationship between “easy to use” evaluation of step-over and control fan switch and step-over and control images. The last part of this study is to design a step-over and control fan switch according to the result in “easy to use” general evaluation in order to verify the image test. The results are summarized below:
Part I. Structure of tread-on concept
The concept of tread-on is composed of “a motion which goes down first and changes into motion with continuous horizontal force” and “motion with interrupted and downward force”. In between, “a motion which goes down first and changes into motion with continuous horizontal force” includes 2 formats of tread-on: “twist” and “glide”; both of them involve a step down movement and followed by a moving action. On the other hand, “motion with interrupted and downward force”, it includes “press” and “hit”; the movement is from up to down with continuous forces and without changing the direction of forces.
Part II. Image structures of step-over and control fan switch
The image structure of step-over and control fan switches is composed by the factors which can reflect the difficulty level when step over and control, such as “complicatedly vs. simply” and the factor which can reflect the sensational feelings, such as “irritably vs. leisurely”.
Part III. The correlation between different step-over control fan switches and images of step-over and control motion
Different type of step-over and control switches have different step-over and control images mainly due to its mechanism. Switches in “glide and hit” group have a “simply” and “leisurely” image. For switches belong to “twist” group have a “simply” and “irritably” image. As for switches in “press” group, they tends to have an image of “complicatedly” and “irritably”.
Part IV. The cause-and-effect relationship between “easy to use” evaluation of step-over and control fan and step-over and control image
Different type of step-over and control switches have different “easy to use” image and the “easy to use” evaluation level are various among each other. The study shows that an easy to use “glide and hit” control switch of fan shall deliver a “continuously” and “joyfully” step over and control image to users. A easy to use “twist” type fan control switch will provide a “rapidly”, “proficiently” and “continuously” step over and control image to the users. On the other hand, a easy to use “press” type fan control switch will give a “patiently”, “comfortably” and “interruptedly” step over and control image to the users.
