Mission Critical Interaction Design
This short presentation provides an introduction to the exciting world of mission critical interaction design, where safety, security and protecting human life enters the realm of digital technology.
In mission critical solutions, user requirements are extreme – the physical conditions are often difficult and stress levels are high. However, users are required to complete vital tasks with no room for error.
Designing for interaction in such extreme environments puts additional focus on the importance of a simple and frictionless user experience. In this presentation, you will gain an understanding of the key factors for successful interaction design in mission critical settings.
