Streetcar: Designing Mass Transit
The following was prompted by an assignment at UC San Diego's Human Computer Interaction Design course.
Over the course of an assignment for UC San Diego's Human Computer Interaction Course, I was tasked with iterating and designing a solution for urban commuter needs; as a team of one.
The challenge I ran into was that an application only solution would fail to address the core concern of users, which is getting where they need to be quickly. It wouldn't matter if you replaced the MetroCard with a mobile application if the train was delayed; the delayed train would be a major pain point for the user.
I researched existing and emerging technologies, and designed storyboards and system maps for a conceptual mass transit system, which can scale across cities, called Streetcar.
