THEMICHIGAN DAILY
DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
4WN.

By PHIL I EHRiAN

A graduate student in industrial
design has concluded that the
basic design of today's taxicab
needs to be improved, and he is
attempting to do something about
it.
Renzo Rutili, Grad., will survey
taxicab owners, drivers and cus-
tomers to ascertain the facts on
which to base concrete design
proposals.
He will use the University's stu-
dent body as his sample for cus-
tomers, because, he says, it con-
tains students in substantial num-
bers from most of the nation's big
metropolitan centers-where cabs
are most in evidence.
More Advice
He's also looking for additional
advice from anyone with exper-
tebce in the taxi business.
This kind of consumer research
is becoming an increasingly im-
portant method in American in-
dustry, Rutili says.
The basic problem with today's
cabs is that they are not pri-
marily designed to be taxis but
instead are modifications of pas-
senger cars. Such a design does
not take into account the specific
needs of a taxicab.
Outlines Categories
Rutili has outlined several cat-
egories of information he will need
in his study. They include main-

tenance problems, basic passenger
capacities, duration of individual
trips in a cab, importance of in-
terior and exterior styling and
need for air conditioning.
He has drawn up questionnaires
to collect this information, and he
hopes to have it soon to finish his
project by the end of May.
He already has some ideas, prin-
cipally the "package" concept of
design. This involves planning a
taxi which is made up of units-
body, engine, transmission, chas-
sis-that would be easily separ-
able from each other. Hence, units
could be removed for maintenance
and replaced by spares to keep
the cab going.
Solve Problem
This would solve one of the
major problems--the large amoun;,
of time which cabs are out of
service for repair, for example, as
transmissions often wear out be-
fore other parts of the car, this
unit could be simply replaced,
keeping the cab in service.
The size of the interior would
be based on the average number
of people riding at one time, Ru-
till says. If this number is high,
a vehicle which is unconventional
by today's standards might be the
result.
People will ride in an unusua;-
looking taxi. They don't care, be-
cause they are not going to buy
the vehicle.
