As a regular commuter, I’m particularly sensitive to issues of driving behavior, particularly distracted driving. When tasked by a professor in my graduate “Prototyping and Interaction Design” course to “write a whitepaper”, I chose to tackle the topic of designing to reduce distracted driving, using user experience research techniques to gather information and validate designs.
When we were unexpectedly given an extension on the assignment, I took advantage of the extra time to dispatch
Designs that people accurately identified the majority of the time, I considered successful. Designs that were frequently misinterpreted, got redesigned before the final draft of the paper.
Tools & methods:
- High-fidelity design
- Unmoderated research
