Energy Management App Mobile Application

Challenge

Create a UI for a restaurant energy management system that allows untrained personnel to effectively manage lighting, temperature, and refrigeration both locally and remotely.

Energy Management Dashboard UI

Smart Dashboard

We are constantly researching how users interpret visual and textual data as well as what they need for making effective decisions ― we exercise our knowledge on this topic when designing the dashboard screen. The unique environment in which the app was going to be used made it clear that the user must be able to extract and process critical data reliably and swiftly with a glance. We designed the UI to guide visual processing and not deter it.

Energy Management Schedule UI

Hierarchical Data Presentation

Leveraging on cognitive architecture and human memory constraints, we designed a layout that minimizes short-term memory load. We designed each screen so that it provides all the information a user may need at any given moment to understand the system status and make effective decisions based on it. An intuitive hierarchy among all UI elements is optimized for rapid scanning.
