Mobile Probes

The Mobile Probes project aims at developing a new digital and mobile based user involvement platform based on the principles of the anthropological method cultural probes.

Case based project

The fundamental idea of the project is to involve users throughout the development process. Initially we promote digital mock ups of a mobile probes platform in order to obtain concrete knowledge of use scenarios with mobile probes. For this purpose the involved case companies are essesntial. During the project the case companies try out “mobile probe” mock ups and prototypes involving their own users in the process. This process is supported by MBox – who are responsible for the technical and mobile aspects of the project setup. Apart from that the project holds an organized method development group that support work in the various case companies.

Overall project plan
The overall project plan consists of four phases with six months duration each.

Phase 1: Screening & Concept development

During the fall of 2008 and spring of 2009 the primary focus of the project was the screeing of relevant technologies, methods and knowledge. In this period the project also initiated a concept development process involving case companies and methodological experts.

Phase 2: Pilot Mobile Probe activities (digital mock ups)
In phase 2 that runs from spring 2009 until fall 2009 the project will introduce digital mock ups to collect knowledge about the mobile probes process both from af user, company and a technological perspective.


Phase 3: Working prototype

Until proven not useful, the plan for phase 3 is to develop and test a working prototype of the mobile probe platform, including a revised concept for the methodological approach.

Phase 4: Final prototype and conceptualization

In the foruth and final phase from spring to fall 2010 the project will present and test a final prototype of the mobile probe platform along with a revised concept for working with the mobile probe.

Communication

Apart from above mentioned phases – the project has a continual focus on communicating project results and experiences as well as documenting internal and external project effects.
