Challenge Title: Cycling Route Planner Design Challenge
Challenge Difficulty: Intermediate
Estimated Time to Complete: 48-72 hours
Required Tools/Resources: Internet access, mapping software, sketching materials

Objective

Design a user-friendly and efficient cycling route planner that helps cyclists navigate safely and efficiently through urban areas.

Research

Research existing cycling route planning apps and websites to understand their features, strengths, and weaknesses. Identify the needs of cyclists in terms of route customization, safety considerations, elevation changes, and points of interest along the way.

Materials

Consider using mapping software that allows for real-time updates on road closures or construction sites. Choose materials that support sustainability by promoting eco-friendly transportation options.

Concept Development

Brainstorm innovative features such as voice-guided navigation, integration with bike-sharing services, or personalized route recommendations based on user preferences. Develop wireframes or mockups to visualize the user interface design.

Deliverables

  1. User personas representing different types of cyclists (commuters, recreational riders)
  2. Wireframes or mockups illustrating the interface layout and key features
  3. A written concept document outlining the functionality and benefits of the cycling route planner

Evaluation Criteria

Projects will be evaluated based on:
– Innovation: Does the design offer unique solutions to common cycling navigation challenges?
– Usability: Is the interface intuitive for users with varying levels of tech-savviness?
– Environmental impact: Does the route planner promote sustainable transportation choices?

This challenge aims to inspire designers to create a practical solution that enhances the cycling experience while promoting eco-friendly commuting options in urban environments.
