OpenBridge PhD position for the OpenZero initiative
We will soon release a fully funded PhD position in interaction design that will investigate how to integrate design patterns for energy savings directly into the OpenBridge Design System. The PhD will be open to interaction design practitioners. Formal details about the position will be released soon. You can register here if you want a direct mail when the call is released.
Ocean Industries Concept Lab is looking for partners in reducing global CO2 emissions by design
We are looking for partners who are interested in collaboratively building OpenBridge user interface components and design patterns that support energy-efficient decision-making. By integrating design guidance for energy efficiency directly into OpenBridge, we believe we can make a significant impact on global maritime emissions. You can read more and register your interest on this online form if your company consider joining the effort: https://nettskjema.no/a/296141
OpenBridge Design System
OpenBridge Design System offers a collection of tools and approaches to improve implementation, design and approval of maritime workplaces and equipment. OpenBridge Design Guideline is a prominent part of OpenBridge Design System that explains how to design OpenBridge user interfaces.
It is a free resource built on modern principles of user interface and workplace design, adapted to maritime context and regulations.
OpenBridge is built on ongoing research from multiple academic partners. The project welcomes research collaborations focusing on workplace design, guidelines or other work that can contribute to the OpenBridge Design System. The project is an excellent opportunity to engage with a broad consortium of industry actors focusing on improving maritime design. If you have research that can be linked to OpenBridge, feel free to contact us.
Following is a list of publications done in conjunction with the project. Read more about our research at out Medium site and on Research Gate, and see our latest activity on LinkedIn.
