The study focuses on the benefits of standing at work because a clear link has been established between productivity and standing for certain tasks. Of course, as the study acknowledges, there are lots of other things...

Our perspective on the 2015 Salone del Mobile in Milan

Every year in April, Milan erupts with energy for the ‘Salone del Mobile’. You go to the Salone and ‘Fuori Salone’ for ideas not so much to see products. It’s an intense few days to concentrate on design, exchange ideas with colleagues and to be inspired. The event requires strategic planning as it’s vast. Here are a couple of memorable installations, one from the fairground...

Helping passengers by understanding their needs

Often the best ideas are the simple ones. For anyone catching a bus in London during the rush hour has probably experienced a mad crush on the lower level only to find that the top level is almost empty.  For some, they like the convenience of sitting or standing close to the door.  But for others, there the lack of visibility of what space is...

iBeacons helping the visually impaired to navigate

Why can’t we get passenger information right?

Why can’t we get passenger information right?

Back in November Passenger Focus released it’s findings on what passengers needed when things go wrong; it didn’t paint a very good picture of how the railway industry handles problems.  The recently issued National Passenger Survey continued to show a high level of dissatisfaction amongst passengers. We know it’s not usually done well because of the recurring story from passengers when things go wrong is “we weren’t...

iBeacons – should we be pushing or pulling content?

iBeacons are causing quite a stir at the moment with a flurry of major companies, including airlines, retail giants and arts venues running trials and pilot schemes trying to work out how they can be employed, the benefits they may bring and how consumers react to the geo-position enabled devices. The key battleground, as we see it, is the contest between enabling customers to pull...

Using technology to improve human performance at work

A Guardian article about a study of the use of intense electric lights to improve performance of students in Sweden and our recent work with the design office team at CERN has got us thinking about the way technology can be used to enhance how people experience a workspace. In particular we have been considering what technological interventions could be considered when there is a scarcity of natural light...

CCD’s work on Passenger Behaviour at London Bridge Station in Wired

Our work on Passenger Behaviour at London Bridge Station has been featured in Wired Magazine.
