Final Project

Product design for underground railway air pollution

This product helps commuters and underground railway staff avoid air pollution particles and their nose discharge turn black in the underground railway.

The problem

There are high levels of polluted fine particles within the London Underground, mainly due to the brakes on the tube. Platforms are the areas with the highest levels of pollutants apart from the tunnels, especially when trains drive onto the platforms. This has made people’s nose discharge turn black, even caused or exacerbated respiratory problems and symptoms in people.

The product

There are two ways of using the product.
