User experience design for a service robot
This project has been in collaboration with Iridium Systems and Robotics Corporation. The brief was to design the user experience and user interface for a service robot. The aim of ISR is to eventually design robots that contain humanoid characteristics. The Evo-1was the device worked on in this project and is ISR's first evolution in their product line. The environment of use is specifically tailored to airports. The robot's purpose is to help weary travellers find their way around the terminal. The interaction that was focused on this year was helping customers to find their gate. The Evo-1 has the ability to detect a user's mood and interact with them accordingly. ISR sought student input in the project after identifying the need for the robot to focus on its ability to provide an engaging and enjoyable experience for the user.
