Project 1 - Prototyping Plan

Prototyping Goals

Why am I creating a prototype?

  • Feedback 1 - to test an easy to use UI and app graphical environment
  • Feedback 2 - to test seamless and private distance and emissions tracking accuracy
  • Feedback 3 - to test local ‘game competition’ enrollment and financial incentive features

Prototype Features

What product features will I prototyping? And why? What do I hope to learn from testing this feature?

  • Prototype Feature 1 - basic app UI with ability to enter car type to test GPS features and emissions - does app track data right? False positives or negatives?
  • Prototype Feature 2 - privacy and data sharing practices - does app encrypt right? can others hack into the app easily? does tracking driving link to the user’s personal accts and breach?
  • Prototype Feature 3 - ease of use and simplicity

Prototype Media

How will you prototype and share these features with others to get their feedback?

I plan to create a demo app that users can download and over a 1 week period, ask users to estimate their driving for each of their specific cars and then compare that to what the app shows in terms of driving or emissions to ensure that the error margin is less than 20% for an alpha level prototype
