The dashboard for Bus Drivers

I’ve been taking bus more regularly now that I’ve sold my car and I can’t help but to observe how bus drivers have been using this complicated looking 2 piece screen device that appears in-front of them.

On closer look, it seems like the top screen tells is “touch screen” enabled where the driver can tap on the various icon such as the microphone to make an announcement and also see various information about the trip like what is the next stop.

The bottom screen however looks non-touch screen, where buttons on the sides are there being configured for a particular purpose as shown on the screen. E.g. button “0” is meant for “End Trip”.

I wonder how long did it take for Bus Drivers to master the usage of this 2-piece dashboard and how often do they make mistakes when using this seemingly complicated device?

Which also leads me to wonder, how can we simplify the design and make it easier to understand?

The Chronicles of Lift Buttons

As some may know, I am quite interested in the lift buttons. Yes, you read it right. Lift buttons are such interesting component of our every day life but many don’t pay much attention to it. Here, I collate a list of interesting lift buttons that I see and also from others. If you have an interesting lift button to share, send it to me 🙂

Hello world!

Yes, hello world, It’s been awhile since I last wrote anything and this time round, I’ll be putting in the effort to share my thoughts as much as possible on my learning journey as a designer.

Where possible, I’ll also be sharing the work in progress of projects that I’m embarking on. Majority of the other projects are confidential at the moment but we’ll see how to share the on-going learnings there while keeping it anonymous.

Stay tune and see you around 🙂
