Bussy: Mobile Transit App
Jan. 2007 – Mar. 2007 for UBC (Advanced HCI Methods)
Prior to the iPhone (which feels like a lifetime ago), my classmates and I used the Nokia N80 to prototype a real-time transit advisor system for mobile devices.
- Researched transit user frustrations using questionnaires and interviews.
- Designed and created prototypes using paper and Flash.
- Conducted A/B study for two of the prototypes (time-based and route-based).
- Awarded Best Project in the class design competition.
I like the way this project makes me reflect on academic methods and also, the rate of change in consumer devices.
