Good interaction design is about understanding the context of each user scenario and presenting to the user the most useful options. This is what we tried to do within ASTUTE – a consortium project of 25 partners in seven countries – exploring proactive multi-modal Human-Machine Interface.
As a UX designer for this project I worked on two proofs of concept; one in the area of emergency dispatching and one in the area of manufacturing process management. For the emergency dispatching concept, the focus was on a system for fire brigades during an emergency response situation.
When I started working on the project, my colleagues had already done intensive field studies, developed user scenarios, personas, and a storyboard illustrating user interactions with the technology. I worked on the prototypes for the emergency dispatching team and the manufacturing process management. While at the same time, I worked on identifying design patterns, that could be applied in other domains.
