Concept and usability testing for a consumer IoT product
A moderated research project to gauge the impact of new product features
The consumer IoT ('Internet of Things') division within global telecoms brand, producing a number of wearables and connected devices.
To test out some concepts around a new battery-saving feature for a GPS tracking device, validating our key assumptions before committing internal resources.
Existing customers who engage with the device on a semi-regular basis. With the product live across Europe, we needed input from customers in the UK, Italy, Spain and Germany.
As an IoT device, the project spanned both digital and physical product development. It was crucial to gain confidence in our suggested features before committing to further design, software development and hardware engineering.
