Parking meters are found everywhere throughout a city and it can be quite costly to replace/modify. There are more than 3 million parking spots in NYC. Respectively, there are a great number of parking meters.
_A touchscreen interface so that drivers can pay for their parking spot for a certain duration, and parking attendants can give tickets to cars who do not pay, or whose parking has expired. _
To preserve readability for all drivers, I decided to use a contrast checker to make sure my colours are comfortable for each driver.
Additionally, I opted to use big and bold texts wherever needed to make sure each component is readable
In order to make sure the design can be adapted to any hardware technology, I decided to make the clickable components as big as possible to prevent issues with touch precision.
Furthermore, in terms of size I adopted the design for a screen just shy of a mini iPad. This minimum threshold is needed for users to navigate easily and I implemented the design to easily scale for bigger screens.
My solution focuses on easy usability while maintaining a simple design. Each The meter consist of at most 6 pages
What was challenging? Making sure any driver can easily use this parking meter and quickly pay their parking.
I would love to receive feedback on how the steps were laid out and whether it should be less or more steps to pay for parking.
