C6: a carbon Emission tracker
Empowering users to help create a greener world through omnipresent technology
C6 was created in the fall of 2014 as part of an upper-level undergraduate User Experience Design course. My team and I were assigned the following problem statement to solve: It’s 2020 and due to rising environmental concerns, the government has set a limit on personal carbon emissions. Individuals need a way to easily budget, monitor, and reduce their personal carbon footprints.
The design process for this project included project characterization and research, persona building, story-boarding, task analysis, system-mapping, prototyping, and user testing. In executing this process we iterated over design and landed on creating a wearable carbon tracker.
Project milestones and documentation:
- Project requirements (features, user base, constraints)
- Research (literature review + field survey)
- Task analysis + system map
- Field test report
- Final presentation + hi-fi prototype
