Getting prepared for emergencies

Service Design   Interaction Design 
The Challenge 
The Outcome

5 million properties or 1 out of 6 houses across the UK  are at risk of flooding but the information in order to prepare are limited and scarce.

Our challenge was to design an educational tool that will support the effort of the parents in the preparation phase.

Powerful Children is a digital service that aims to aid the family preparation phase in case of a flooding event. In the online platform, parents have access to all information needed in order to prepare their family and the children taking care of the psychological issues that may arise. The website is kid-friendly.

Through the online platform, parents have access to printable tools such as a family action plan and a board game to initiate the conversation.

Research

t is predicted that autonomous cars will be on our roads in the next five years, sharing economy for transport will become the norm and our most our daily human interactions will be replaced by AI. 

 

Our design brief, at Royal College of Art, was about designing a service and its future interactions in the mobility space. But my team and I decided to take a speculative and provocative direction on the topic: Our research found that companies, engineers, and designers are primarily focused on building the technical requirements necessary to create functioning driverless cars, such as navigation and artificial intelligence (AI) systems, peer-to-peer vehicle communications, and advanced LIDAR sensors. But… 

 

What are the implications of removing the human driver? What is missing from the equation?

t's easy.
