Speed Capture kiosk
captures biometric data for personal ID
We started the design by putting all earlier products aside and worked solely with the intention of designing an optimal product. This was done in terms of ergonomics for all kinds of people including handicapped, user interaction, process procedures, high flow of clients, maintenance, hygiene, robustness, low cost and most important of all; capturing high quality biometric data.
We also wanted to create a unique modern, slim and user friendly look.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The product captures high quality pictures (light design is very important), finger prints and high quality signature features. The unit is automatically adjustable in height adapting to different standing heights and handicapped. The automatic interface is presented on a large touch screen together with a speaker and a mic. Many of the components are modular to meet different demands, such as the upper light. A real metal frame protects the hardened glass covering components. Tough cost demands
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
In comparison to other product in the same range it stands out in terms of: Slim design, small footprint, hygieneical, user-interaction, handles handicapped, sitting and standing people, higher quality photo due to exceptional light design, higher quality signature and finger prints due to optimized ergonomics. User friendly in terms of how the units are placed with light indicators and together with the interactive user interface it is easy to make people do the right thing and perform as intended.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Started Dec 2015 and the main design work ended in July 2016. Stockholm , Sweden
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Digital and Electronic Devices Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Aluminum frame work and exterior protector of the screen printed hardened glass. Plastic covers injection moulded and vacuum formed.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The height varies to be able to handle sitting small people to tall standing people. For dimensions see pictures with a person standing in front of the unit.
We used our design research method, including environmental studies, user interviews and from this analysis we concluded how an optimal design should look like. This result then had to be adapted considering cost and regulatory demands. The ergonomic research was very important so a lot of work was done on the adaptation for the vast variety of the human population. Internal component modularisation analysis was also performed as well as form analysis, light design. It was also very important to find a user interface and a self-explanatory design so that one can avoid problems and have a high flow of clients capturing their biometrics in a smooth, fast and orderly fashion.
A tight deadline in a small team(little resources) and the very tough cost demands. Besides that it was difficult to design a product that can be equipped with different sized components (modular) and the vast range of people using the unit.
