“Here we go”
Function of a sweeper at the Tour de France
If a rider on the Tour de France falls too far behind the peloton, he will be picked up by the sweeper. He has to give his start number and retires from the race. The cyclist can rest and regenerate in the back of the sweeper.
As before, mainly vans are used at the Tour de France. The marking is typically carried out using two brooms attached to the left and right of the vehicle and does not differ from standard vehicles in the transportation design.
Show effect and emotions
The Tour de France is a sport event in which the show effect is increasingly coming to the fore. The task of the new Transportation Design is to become an integral part of this show and to inspire the audience. For the race participants, driving in the sweeper and the associated departure from the race is a highly emotional and devastating moment. The new transportation design of the sweeper meets the emotional challenge of the cyclist with its new structure and clear separation between the driver’s cab and the transport unit.

Transportation Design 3D CAD-Modelling
The 3D-CAD-design model is modeled in Autodesk ALIAS. The surface curves are consistent throughout the curve in Class A quality. The surface transitions of the main surfaces are curveture.
The design of the cockpit is clear and serves as a command center for controlling the camera cartridges.
The camera Drone: Already in 2006 the concept was released with the camera Drone. At this time hardly conceivable and today ubiquitous: camera cartridges.
Industrial Design by Florian Mack in cooperation with Sebastian Russ
