We have scheduled the first webinar in the Zerynth Continuous Learning series. If you tune in on March 5th at 4 pm CET, you’ll get to learn about UX design for IoT projects straight from the experts.

Like we mentioned in our previous articles, the Zerynth Continuous Learning series is designed so that every member of our development team get to present a topic he’s most passionate about. This way, each month the whole Zerynth team has the opportunity to learn something new.

In March, Daniele Mazzei, our Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer will talk about User Experience design in the context of IoT.

UX Design in the world of IoT

IoT’s definition talks about technology and things, but it doesn’t talk about people and why objects should be connected. In fact, we are already connected to objects, they allow us to access services, to enjoy content, but above all to change the way we access these things.

The problem is that we are used to design for the web or for mobile and when you think about the interface of an object you think about the app that will make it work, and not the product itself.

We need a change of perspective in the design processes. It’s necessary to follow a more elastic approach, because we must accept that the IoT has its own design principles.

As you already know, IoT is very sectorial, each device is highly specialized, the bridges between the physical and virtual worlds are often one-sided – the interactions are from the user to the device without any obvious feedback.

This is why you should tune in to the webinar, and learn how to overcome this gap.

More about the presenter

Daniele Mazzei is an assistant Professor at the Computer Science department of the University of Pisa where he teaches Human Machine Interface and Social Robotics. He is also the Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer at Zerynth.

How to tune in to the webinar

To make it easy for everyone to access the webinar, we have decided to hold in on our YouTube channel.

This way all of you can interact with us during the presentation and ask questions. It’s the closest thing to you actually being there with us in Pisa.

If you’re interested in the topic of UX design, mark March 5th at 4 pm CET on your calendar.
