Pdf of my final presentation:
A pilots chair for arctic going explorer vessels.
Boreal is a fully adjustable pilots chair with integrated air inflatable support pads, designed for both stability and support when breaking ice or experiencing extreme conditions.
The video above show a walk-through of the steps you do to position drones in the drone position application. Continue reading “The drone positioning interface”
This is how the application currently looks like. I repeat: My focus is on how you place the drone in relation to a ship.
After testing the landscape in the Hololens, I added “tags” to see if I could use the landscape to move the these tags around. The tags are not moveable, but at least I could pretend that I grabbed them.
The video shows me trying to grab the tags, but I concluded that this did not work very well. First of all, my hands came behind the tags which made it very difficult to grab them. Secondly, it was difficult to see the total landscape. This is because the landscape appears in a perspective – and the eye sees most of what appears in front, but the eye has difficulty seeing what is at the back of the hologram in a perspective. Therefore, the user loses an overview of half the landscape.
A clip of how the captain works with the different interface modes and what interactions he utilises during different stages of a mission to collect a sample from an iceberg. As he gets close to where the operation is most intense, the part of the communication interface the captain actually needs is only the widget showing the name of the person addressing him. Prior to complex operations at sea is when you set up groups and manage them, test connections and such. Closer in time to the operation is when you need some fast choices from the menu, like calling the head engineer and deliver the message that you are taking over power control to enter DP mode.
I have gathered some inspiration for a graphical user interface. I want it to look technical, but still user friendly.
There are several ways placing the drone. Here you can see some ways of doing it manually with touch gesture.
In this post I will talk about the intention of building the motion rig, and why I haven`t used it in my concept development this semester.
