Vincent Moug, Mind the Gap – Accessibility Compliance and User Autonomy at the Platform-To-Train Interface

15-18 September 2017

This design research investigates an enduring issue for public transport systems – one of universal accessibility – challenged with bringing historical rail networks into compliance as set out by contemporary disability discrimination policy, with the primary aim of the research centring on improved passenger mobility and safety at the platform-to-train interface. The public transport system providing precedent for the research is Melbourne’s metropolitan rail network, responsible for the transportation of passengers within the Victorian state capital and throughout the greater metropolitan region.

Through a studio-based industrial design enquiry, the primary research question ‘How can paradigms of context and use expand knowledge in the design of cross-gap (or mobility) solutions between the train and platform, to benefit users and operators in accessibility compliance?’ is investigated. Objective studies are undertaken into current policy, infrastructure and rolling stock design to arrive a context derived solution.

This exhibition comprises the practical component of Vincent Moug’s PhD research.

MADA Gallery is currently undergoing renovation. Mind the Gap – Accessibility Compliance and User Autonomy at the Platform-To-Train Interface will be on exhibition at the Caulfield Campus, Building B, B6.27. This exhibition is closed to the public.
