Final Report

Usability Test

System Walkthrough

App Walkthrough

I worked with a group to develop an alternative Point of Sale system. Specifically, I designed/ran both usability tests and assisted with making mockups in sketch. We started with a concept with smartphone scanners, but informal user testing revealed several limitations with this model. We then pivote to an RFID hardware component designed to eliminate the repetitive and tedious process of scanning items. The team put a high-fidelity mockup of the software component and general scanner layout through a usability test, which informed several key design alterations.
