Nearly all people in the Czech Republic between the ages of 16-24 years use a smartphone. Many students within this age group use mobile apps to help them navigate on foot but rarely do they consider their safety. Studies show that distracted pedestrians, particularly those using their smartphones, are more likely to get into dangerous situations than those who do not use their phones while walking.
Conducted user research on pedestrian navigation safety of students. Used semi-structured interviews with eight university students in Prague (international and Czech students between ages 19-28). Collected data was analyzed first using the Thematic Analysis approach to find common themes and then further organized through an Affinity Diagram. Designed a speculative prototype for a solution that could exist 20+ years from now.
