How might we create confidence and increase communication to riders of a public transportation system? This project is focusing on creating an interactive display and experience for riders of the Georgia Tech Bus system. The goals of this display is to provide multi-sensory, at-a-glance information about the bus system in relation to the station's current location, while also providing more detailed information on closer inspections for users that wish to make a more informed decisions around using the bus.
Students in Georgia Tech's interdisciplinary MS in Human-Computer Interaction program do multiple group class projects, and a capstone individual project. Some projects are presented as part of other labs listed here; others are showcased in the MS-HCI Project Lab.
The two-year program spans four schools: Industrial Design; Interactive Computing; Literature, Media and Communications (Digital Media Program); and Psychology. Approximately 50 new students enroll each fall semester.
