Product Development
Abstract (Swedish)
The aim of this thesis is to enhance Axis Communications’ (Axis) product portfolio using new emerging technologies, developing products that will increase their global market share.

By improving their products’ heat resistance Axis will gain a competitive advantage over its competitors in warm climate countries, enabling a great potential for market share growth.
By determining the properties of extreme terrestrial environments and designing it with regard to its thermal properties and aesthetical values, a detailed concept will emerge.

Axis has several products in most surveillance camera sectors, such as dome and thermal vision cameras and aims to lead the trend of digitalizing the video surveillance sector.

The aim of this thesis is to enhance Axis Communications’ (Axis) product portfolio using new emerging technologies, developing products that will increase their global market share.

Axis has several products in most surveillance camera sectors, such as dome and thermal vision cameras and aims to lead the trend of digitalizing the video surveillance sector.

The development process used in this thesis is primarily linear, but with partially iterative steps. With market research supported by wide investigation of emerging technologies the proposed concept and its associated difficulties are divided into smaller and more apprehensive problems. By generating conceptual problem solutions to these smaller problems followed by substantial evaluation and further refinements more detailed concept solutions are obtained.
The design is primarily focused on a “form follows function” basis, seeing as the need for a great functionality is more important than that of a perfect aesthetical design in extreme environments. However, since the sales success of the concept ultimately depends on customer preference, aesthetical needs are not neglected.

Lastly these developed concepts are tested further and converged into a single final concept. (Less)
