Survey

1) Do you believe the safety issues are better implemented?
 
2) Do you believe solar panels are good for the future of the world?
 
3) Do you think the new system is more enjoyable for the bus users?
 
4) Is this more user-friendly for disabled people?
 
5) Are the changes worth the money?
 
FEEDBACK BY KOMAL
  • System models: does it accurately represent the critical features of the system? Is it easily understood and informative? Would it assist people who are trying to understand the system in the simplest way possible?
  •  
    The system is drawn true to it's actual features. Although the features are self explanatory, the absence of labels means that they can be incorrectly interpreted. The two views enhance the understanding of the old buses and the suggestion of seats to un complicate the diagram is an interesting approach. Overall, the system is represented well but labels should be a prominent feature.
     
  • System prototype plans: how closely would it imitate the functions of the full systems? Since it is scaled-down, what things will be easier to test out? Conversely, what limitations will the prototype have?
  •  
    The prototype is very environmentally friendly and thus addresses current issues in our world today. Even the electricity for heat panels is recycled by channeling the energy from friction between the road and the tyres. The needs of commuters (newspapers, wheelchair access) are also taken into account and do not require excessive testing. The heat panels will most probably be rejected by the Department of Transport as they are very unsafe. Most commuters will be wearing shoes so the heat panels will not be effective.
     
  • Surveys for participants & end users: will they provide useful, informative feedback? Complete a survey and provide the writers of the survey with some actual answers that they can use to test out the clarity and effectiveness of their surveys.

    1) Do you believe the safety issues are better implement?
    Safety issues have decreased in the prototype especially due to the very highly dangerous heat panels. Contact between wet feet and electricity can create dangerous sparks.
    2) Do you believe solar panels are good for the future of the world?
    Yes.
    3) Do you think the new system is more enjoyable for the bus users?
    Yes.
    4) Is this more user-friendly for disabled people?
    Of course, the addition of wheelchair access underlines this.
    5) Are the changes worth the money?
    Depends, as the cost of the changes is not outlined.
