This app is developed by TEAMTEAM for CSC301 at the University of Toronto. After their final deliverable, I was interested
to join in on their project and do some extra work on their user interface. During my last year at the University of
Toronto, I joined the Sustainability Office
as a work-study student. Being sustainable
is important to me, so this project is quite personal. I think the success of this application can make a big difference
to our carbon footprint.
Take a look at their project:
Final deliverable from TEAMTEAM.
This mobile app will turn off electronics when users are a certain radius away from their home. When users come closer
to their home, the electronics will be turned back on. On top this main functionality, users should be able to:
- See the list of configured devices and their status of "on" or "off"
- Edit individual device settings
- Set the distance the electronics will be turned on or off
- View electrical consumption graphs
This proposed interface is an updated version of the original screens provided. The focus of this design was to fit
the original design to Apple's Human Interface Guidelines. Essentially, I'm just playing around with the Apple's design
patterns and principles.
Please take a look and comment around for future suggestions.
There are still many things I can do to improve this proposed interface. I would like to include information relating to
the wattage used for each device. This information would definitely provide users
some sort of baseline for what is most determinetal.
