Abstract: The global outbreak of the Coronavirus has exposed the problems of lagging construction of supporting facilities and emergency response systems when cities face sudden disturbances. The project aims to improve public health care safety from the perspective of "resilient cities" and to find out the feasibility of public epidemic prevention products. The research focused on the 4R attributes of resilient cities. Based on user scenarios, we took over 200 samples through questionnaires and interviews, with questions on behavioral movement, human-machine interaction and system process experience, and obtained pain points as: "efficiency", including time, strain; "safety ", including the extermination strength; "convenient", including operation process tediousness; "sentiment", including information symmetry; "staff fatigue" and other issues, and through interviews to further refine the process of staff experience. Summarizing the pain points to design functional modules for temperature measurement, triage guidance, special situation emergency handling notification, etc. Based on the task and environmental scenarios, we carried out field observation of different places and emergency handling methods, thus interpreting epidemic and disaster prevention policies to classify the places. Aiming at multi-layer scenarios and functions, the product is positioned at the front-end control of cross-infection to realize early detection, triage, disinfection and treatment. In order to facilitate the transportation and maintenance, our design is based on "cabin", including the L-shaped modular main cabin, which is preferentially positioned in the 1 and 2 level shelters. Emergency cabin, which can be unfolded into bigger space for rest if necessary. The isolation cabin, which is put away when idle and can be expanded to serve as an isolated area for users when there's user status exception. The material disinfection cabin at the entrance is suitable for tertiary scenarios such as communities where entry speed is lower. The belongings travel with users in the main cabin, and users can enter and exit the place through this connecting cabin after completing the process such as hands and shoes disinfection, and body temperature detection at the corner, which enhances users' sense of security, usability in terms of user experience. Based on research, our design is more technically and functionally competitive, focusing on the urban users' experience. Our study can realize front-end control of contagion and timely dispatch during major and secondary disasters, and can utilize the space with modular design to enhance resilience and realize common governance of public areas.
