Cute Caretaker: "Hyundai Keeo "

Creating a home-like comfortable space in the Interior, allowing the parents to spend quality time with their child while travelling.

mobility solution for the L5 Autonomous era, combined with advanced technologies and features powered by Boston Dynamics.


About the Project

Hyundai Keeo is an Interior Design project, 'Keeo' is a Korean word for 'care'.

It is a mobility solution for the L5 Autonomous era, combined with advanced technologies and features powered by Boston Dynamics, targeted towards new nuclear families consisting of the Parents and 'one child'. Aimed at Creating a home-like comfortable space in the Interior, allowing the parents to spend quality time with their child while travelling.


The interior architecture is inspired by the Mobius strip, creating an edge less surface throughout the layout resulting in a safe space for the child.The idea for the final seating layout was to create a large space for one parent and child for comfortable feeding, cleaning and other activities and a separate comfortable seat for the other parent close to the child area.The interior comes with an AI Bot powered by Boston Dynamics named 'Keeo' and an Advanced Seat + crib for the child.


Child Seat

The cushion is made of advanced flexible fabric and the modular base structure containing the tech will expand adapting to the size of the child.


Keeo the caretaker

The interior does not have any display screen integrated to avoid screen time for the child, but it does have Keeo, which will act as a UI of the vehicle and interact with the parents, performing tasks on demand such as playing music through its ear speakers and using its face display only for expressing itself.

Keeo will be living with the family even outside the vehicle at home, the Primary goal of keeo is to be the child's companion, to share, interact, teach and capture the growing up of the child.

To reduce the parents' load of carrying, keeo will follow parents outside the vehicle with the child's seat floating over its head using magnetic levitation which will also keep the seat stable on rough surfaces, and when the child learns walking it has a foldable seat on which the child can ride and have fun.


Internship Experience

I thank and appreciate my mentor, Mr Kaushal Singh, for his daily support, guidance and motivation, I learnt a lot of new techniques throughout the three months of Internship starting from the 1st-month interior sketching exercise to the final design project, which helped me improve my skills a lot, without his push, I couldn't have imagined such outputs in such a short time.

Thanks a lot, Design Odyssey Team for organizing this Internship and allowing me to connect with professional designers in the Industry. Cheers to all fellow interns who have completed the Internship. All the best!-Saurav pandey
