In today's product development, it is increasingly important to consider whole user's experience which are gotten through the interaction with products and/or services. To enhance this point, R&D department and the engineers are also required to consider user experience (UX) in their development work. This paper shows the way to design UX by R&D engineers which are not professionals of user centered design and UX.
This research hypothesizes that architecture and city legibility is an element that can increase consistency between the user's mental map and an actual map. This research focuses on the topological aspects of five city elements that form the mental map - as introduced in “The image of the city” - and attempts to establish a correlation with visual variations identified through tests of subject search behavior in architecture and cities using eye mark recorder. The result of this research will be to propose indexing and measurement methods for architecture and city legibility by quantifying complicated visual behavior through mental maps.
We made a trial motion assessment support system, which can record biometric measurements, video of body motion and the coach's live assessment simultaneously. A usability test was carried out when 6 subjects performed an exercise with two walking poles and their performances were monitored and instructed by a coach using this motion assessment support system. As a result, the user interface was changed following feedback and the coach reported that using the recorded data they could identify points of instruction quickly and it was easier to instruct the subjects using measured data and video.
