Redundancy does not mean inferior…

Posted on July 21, 2016

The primary interaction might be designed to be automated with readouts on large screens and reduced physical effort, but redundancy on critical equipment is not a secondary concern.  When the redundancy is called upon it has to deliver the same performance in the same environment. It has to overcome the same challenges for the operators, it is not optional.  With design moving into the increasingly digital realm its important for lessons learned designing physical interactions not to be lost or ignored. It might just save a life. DSCF1065
