MA work

The project is an attempt to improve the usability of the London transport network by delivering information better. At present, interconnected bus journeys are very hard, unless they are researched online using high-tech devices or the user has prior knowledge. Public signage just cannot deliver in digestible form the quantity of information required to make complex journeys. The goal of this project is to allow a user to arrive at any point in the transport network knowing only their destination and deliver a trouble-free route. This project encapsulates the things that interest me most: working with technology but putting it to use with real public benefit.
