Zatar – Dev Community

The concept of the Zatar developer community is to offer a platform that enables and encourages development of third party applications on Zatar. Like most developer communities, documentation and application tools are typically featured and available for use. For the Zatar developer community, Avatar Builder, one of three tools to be featured at the time of launch, is an Avatar definition manager to assist developers in creating and managing definitions for devices that have been onboarded to Zatar.

Wireframes were created to show the initial user interaction and workflow for the tool, later a color exploration and iconography study was performed and the tool was branded.

Zatar Analytics

The snapshot of multiple screens featured here surface the various views of aggregate data queried by the users. The graphs, arranged in widgets, give a view of the metrics by grouping (i.e. location, device type) for a custom date range or pre-selected value such as month or day.

 

Zatar Analytics – iPad

Tablet view of the analytics application, responsive and optimized for mobile and tablet, the navigation which is accordian style in the desk top version transitions to a one column navigation with fly-out menu for secondary navigation items.

Zatar – Scanner App

The wireframes and realized designs for this scanner application is an earlier iteration of the iBeacScan application (seen earlier in the portfolio), the difference being the use of RFID tags rather than beacons for tracking and monitoring. Users of the application are typically in a logistics environment where they would scan RFID bar codes for shipment items and then associate the items with a shipment ID which can also be scanned or manually entered. Once this operation is successful the user is able to onboard this “marriage” to Zatar and extricate useful data in the Zatar application as it relates to the logistics chain.

Zatar Data Architecture

A two-part proposed design for a demo display to be featured at a retail conference. The mock-up shows how the Zatar application allows for omni-channel customer experiences by leveraging technology to engage customers virtually everywhere from anywhere.

Retail is one of the many industries that beacon technology combined with the Zatar IoT platform can provide optimal solutions to enhance user experiences and personalized interactions for consumers.

Zatar – Cold Chain Avatar

The Cold Chain Avatar would be used for purposes of monitoring a temperature controlled supply chain, commonly used for food and pharmaceuticals, the avatar would alert/report back any temperature break or interruption in the chain during the logistics cycle that could cause the supply to be ruined.

The avatar is unique in that it is not 1:1 which is common for avatars in Zatar. 1:1 meaning 1 device per avatar. This avatar would be considered a “compound” avatar due to the many devices involved (GPS, temp sensor, mobile gateway) and the technology behind making the multiple devices communicate amongst themselves and the Zatar cloud.

The design for the avatar illustrates the capability of the application should the compound avatar be implemented as well as the advantages of reporting data from multiple streams surfaced in one view.

Zatar – Dev Community

Zatar has created a community for developers interested in using Zatar API for developing 3rd party applications.  To gain the attention of developers and appeal to that audience, Zatar designers were tasked with designing the visual, interactions and user experience for the developer website and application tools to be featured and launched from the developer portal. The design below shows an iconography study for the developer tools.

Usability Study Results

The UI/UX team here at Zatar was tasked with conducting a usability study for navigating between user “Worlds” within the application.  Zatar, an Internet of Things (IoT) platform, is a simple way to connect devices to the Internet via cloud computing. Data from those devices is then shared amongst it’s users privately or publicly. In conducting the test we hoped to gain insightful information regarding users’ ability to distinguish between public, private or shared worlds of devices and determine if navigation amongst these worlds of devices is learnable, efficient, memorable and a satisfying product experience.

This is a results page from the usability report done for the “Worlds Navigation” study. Testers were debriefed at the end of the study and asked questions on the quality of their experience and their attitude toward completing the tasks. Using the Lickert scale for attitudinal debriefing, I was able to quantify the results and present them in comparison bar graph for analysis.
