    MGV Québec is a group that seeks to promote and create a high-speed monorail concept that can fit the needs for intercity transportation in Quebec as well as being an exportable technology for other regions and countries. Originally, this monorail concept came from my graduating project in Industrial Design, which was a collaborative work between the University of Montreal’s School of Industrial Design, the Polytechnique of Montreal and the HEC (High Commerce Studies). The goal was to create an innovative public transport for Quebec. After more than 8 months of intensive research, analysis and creation, the result of the collaboration between the various students fields of studies was UbiCiT, a suspended high-speed electric monorail concept answering the growing needs of Montreal’s public transit network. My task was to design the inside and the exterior of the monorail. In addition to that, the multidisciplinary aspect of the project needed the mechanical, electrical and economical criteria to be constantly respected. The infrastructures, developped by my fellow design student Maxime Couturier, was also a key part of the project’s integration. Another concept was also developped by a seconde team with my fellow design student Éric Perreault. The project received numerous awards including the first place for the ADIQ prize (Industrial Designers Association of Quebec) at the 2012 University of Montreal’s School of Industrial Design graduating students exhibit. During the same event, the project was also awarded the first place for the CQRDA prize (Aluminum Research and Development Center of Quebec). The project was even presented at «Découverte», a science show on Radio-Canada. Read Less
