2. User Research - laurafo/Augmented-Flight-AVR Wiki

User research is the methodic study of target users, including their needs and frustrations.

a. Personas

A Persona is a fictional character created to represent the user type that might use our product. By answering the following questions we clarified the target audience for our Augmented Flight Application: Who is our ideal user? What are the goals and needs of our users? What are the frustrations of our users?

b. User Story

A user story is a simple and short description of a feature of your product. It is formulated in everyday language and told from the perspective of our personas Amanda and Brian.

“As a passenger I want to experience the flight in all its details. I want to understand how far from the ground I am currently at, which cities I am flying over and which sights I can see at the horizon. Augmented Flight extends the overall flight experience. It helps to use the time to destination efficiently, while making flights more pleasurable, educating and entertaining.”

c. Storyboard

A storyboard is a visualization of a concept or idea. It can help to visually predict and explore the user experience with a product.

d. User Requirements User requirements are requirements set by the end users. These are written early in the validation process, typically before the system is created.

Functional requirements: Easy touch interaction Tracking cities, sights, etc. Filtering by different categories e.g. sights Showing general information (time to destination, altitude) Showing short information of the tracked items Showing detailed information when clicking on a item

Non-functional requirements: Colorful Entertaining Simple textes Satisfying
