ParKam Smart Signs
UI Design, Feature Redesign & User testing (2015-2016)
The idea of ParKam smart signs was always a part of the company's marketing strategy, but it was only in 2018 that we started to actually develop this product, and offer it to potential clients.
In a nutshell - using the latest LED screens technology to show real-time parking availability data in parking lots or city streets.
We had many iterations and options for this product, trying to address most of the challenges we identified:
Perth Airport Use Case
Perth Airport in Australia was one of the first clients who showed interest in smart signs for their Terminal 1 drop-off zone. They witnessed a lot of traffic jams in the entrance of the drop-off zone, due to the small number of parking spots in there and the lack of info display on available spots ahead.
Our mission was to create a design for the smart sign display that would keep the traffic going and give drivers insight into the parking availability in the section ahead.
I created a few designs showing the parking status in both areas of the drop-off zone (the entrance and the parking section ahead). I tried to address the mapping of the area in different graphic ways, and we tested all 3 options with potential users.
This project is still in development these days.
