It is the official version of the assessment, describing the aims, tasks and deliverables for each assessment item, together with expected workload, due dates, submission instructions, assessment criteria and accompanying grade descriptors for standards-based assessment. The document should be read in conjunction with the DECO1013 Unit of Study outline. Any clarifications to the assessment will be posted on the Canvas site (http://canvas.sydney.edu.au/) during semester. 1. Design Brief Is the future of digital interaction limited to experiencing the world through our index finger? Designers and creative technologists are increasingly bidding farewell to the ubiquitous touchscreen and embracing other avenues of interaction that make better use of the full capabilities of our bodies. In this subject student’s will develop a motion-activated device using physical computing techniques and design processes. The device will be a functional and interactive prototype at a 1:1 scale. The device will be housed in a fabricated enclosure, this enclosure can be developed in parallel through the subject DECO1008 3D Fabrication & Modelling. It is however possible to take each unit independently, please approach the unit coordinator for further advice is this situation applies to you. Architecture, Design and Planning 2. Assessment Tasks Overview The subject is divided into four assessment tasks as described in the table below. The four assessment tasks represent your entire unit of study mark.

For example, a weight of 20% means that this assessment component contributes 20% of the total mark for this unit of study. The learning outcomes are listed in the unit of study outline. 3. Assessment Task Descriptions Task 1: Concept Design Proposal (20%, individual, 16 hours over 4 weeks) Why You are doing this assessment This assignment will provide an opportunity for you to receive feedback on your initial concept and to present a justification for your design based on your initial research. Page 1 – Research: In this assessment you will present initial research into an opportunity for a design intervention that will use a bespoke electronic device. Your research must also be synthesised into a problem statement: a one-sentence description of the need you are addressing, which will drive the development of your assessment through this semester. Page 2 – 3 Concept: You will also present an initial concept that addresses this problem that also includes rough sketches and initial ideas of how your movement-based device will work. What you need to do: You are required to submit a concept proposal for a motion-activated device. This will be made up of research (1 x A4 page) and concept description (2 x A4 pages) including draft sketches and illustrations of the initial concept. The proposal should include research on existing product designs. The concept description should include a defined solution to a design problem that has been identified through research. Additionally, the concept description will include how your proposed device addresses user needs or the types of users that the device will be used by. This will be summarised in a single problem statement. The assignment will be assessed according to the following equally weighted criteria: Architecture, Design and Planning Task Deliverable 1. Research existing motion-activated designs. Explore the history of interactive physical computing devices and investigate their use and context. One A4 page of research, including images. APA referencing must be included in a bibliography. 2. Description of a motion-activated design. This will include a description of a device based on an Arduino and the sensors included within the kit for this class. The design of the device must be informed by the included research. Two A4 pages of research, including images. APA referencing must be included in a bibliography. Submission: Submit one .PDF to Canvas. It should be named using the unit of study code, assessment number and your unikey, for example “DECO1013_A1_mbor1234.pdf”. References: You need to cite any references used in your research, including images. Make use of one specific referencing style consistently throughout your report and list your references in a correctly formatted bibliography at the end of your document. We recommend using APA (American Psychological Association) referencing guidelines. Examples and guidelines can be found on http://www.citethisforme.com/guides/apa or http://libguides.library.usyd.edu.au/c.php?g=508212&p=3476096 Expected workload: Students are expected to spend approximately 16 hours working on this assignment. This is calculated by the percentage assessment weighting of the minimum hours of student effort outside of face- to-face classes. This is only provided as a guide; each individual student may spend more or less time, depending on their study preferences and learning ability. Task 2: Low-Fidelity Prototype (20%, individual, 16 hours over 4 weeks) Why You are doing this assessment This is the first milestone in the delivery of you design project and an important stage, as you will receive feedback on the way that your system will operate and the way that your system is being implemented. You will describe how your device will be used through an interaction model (described in week 7 class) and also present your device to your tutors in a hands-on session. You do not need to prepare slides. What you need to do For assignment 2 you are required to build a low-fidelity motion-activated prototype. This device will be the basis for your final assignment. This assignment will be presented in tutorial in the form of a short hands on demonstration. This requires that you demonstrate a working prototype to the tutors who will interact with the device. A motion-activated prototype uses changes in pitch, roll, and yaw, which make up the three axes of the accelerometer contained in the IMU sensor (Inertial Measurement Unit) on the Micro:bit or gesture/range sensor of the kits we use for this class. Your prototype will use these sensors as an input to control a motion-activated device. The entire device will be housed in a plastic take-away container. You are required to develop an interaction model which describes the use and function of their device in its context. This model will be in the form of a flow chart, this will describe the functionality and the use of the device. Examples of interaction models will be provided. Architecture, Design and Planning Task Deliverable 1. Develop a low-fidelity motion-activated prototype. Use the concepts developed in Assessment Task 1: Concept Design Proposal, to develop a motion-activated design. Build a low-fidelity motion-activated prototype. The prototype will use the BBC Micro:bit, it’s IMU and sensors from the Grove Inventor Kit to create a motion-activated device. The entire device will be housed in a plastic take-away container. 2. Document the devices use and context. Using your knowledge of interactive design principles and the goals of human-centered design, develop an interaction model. Create an interaction model which illustrates the use and function of your device in its context. Describe visually how the device will be used and what interactions are possible. It can include descriptive text or relevant images of the device. APA referencing must be included in a bibliography. 3. Present the device and demonstrate its interactive functions, explain its use and context and articulate its purpose. Each student will have to co-present their report. You will have 3 minutes to present, followed feedback from your studio tutor and peers. Submission: Submit one .PDF to Canvas containing the interaction model. It should be named using the unit of study code, assessment number and your unikey, for example “DECO1013_A2_mbor1234.pdf”. Instructions for how to submit the files will be posted on the eLearning site (canvas.sydney.edu.au). Each student will present their prototype in Week 8 (during class). References: You need to cite any references used in your research, including images. Make use of one specific referencing style consistently throughout your report and list your references in a correctly formatted bibliography at the end of your document. We recommend using APA (American Psychological Association) referencing guidelines.
