Ambient Display

Information visualisation in the public domain is challenging. This research project investigates the question on how real-time data should be visualised in our future cities. To investigate this matter we have build an ambient display connected to the public transport system and representing the waiting time in three conditions: (1) text based information (2) ambient LED low-res representation in the form of a sand-clock where waiting time drops down from top to bottom and (3) a combination of both, projected and ambient content we refer to as „hybrid“.
