Potentials of Ambient Communication Environments

PACE is a interdiscipinary research project of the university of applied science Osnabrück that examines the optimization of communication especially through the usage of new and ambient media. PACE is short for Potentials of Ambient Communication Environment. Partners of the project are for example Stadtwerke Osnabrück.

In this project we followed a participatory design process to develop a new communication system for the distribution of intern information.

I worked as a part of a group of students to identify the exact problems that lead to the negative symptoms in the communication. In multiple workshops we worked together with the busdrivers to accomplish this goal. We finished our work by developing a new concept for communication which includes a new web-app that simplifies and summarizes the information that is required for the bus-driver's daily routine.
