Advanced User Interfaces: Bicycle Security
In this paper for my Advanced User Interfaces class, core security principles were researched and applied to the user experience of bicycle locks. Current bicycle locks offer a wide range of features and benefits, but consumer options are limited and perhaps underserved. It was my goal in this paper to take a step back from the issue of specific bike lock features and focus more on the issue of perceived security. Under the guidance of UX/AI expert Dr. Roland Hübscher, and by looking at the entire user mindset surrounding the possession of a bicycle, I was able to begin to explore new options for holistic bike security.
