// Project submitted for Shanghai Metro Company.
Lunar is a metro station proposition for Shanghai, offering a new way to imagine how people will see their daily commuting. Considering a wide range of designs fields, Lunar introduces a new societal way to accept personal data storage, called transparency. The whole station uses facial recognition to allow commuters badges-free travelling and services usages, provided by a new, intelligent space that recognize you, and let you access to smart and discreet applications, such as map guidance, emails consultation, and social networks.
Tools: Sketches, Adobe Master Suite, 3D modeling + renderings.
Award: Shanghai Metro Station National Competition, 3rd price (over 1700 entries) 2011.
Team: Valentin Gauffre (Interfaces, Interaction & Service Design), François Hurtaud (Space & Service Design), Arthur Kenzo (Product & Service Design), Jesse Liu (Space Design), François de Martrin-Donos (Product & Service Design), Louis Mathieu-Chon (Space Design).
Lunar is composed by two products using facial-recognition. The boundary uses a projected interface for two functions : first to create an account linked with your face, and to refill your account.
The second product is a facial recognition checkpoint, placed at entrances and exits of the metro stations
The facial recognition system offers new possibilities for metro services, without having to hardly modify existing stations.
Products & Techs details
Personal interactions with designed walls can open the door to a new range of services, such as live guidance, hands-free notifications…
Using the large surface of interactive walls in the subway station, the project empowered advertisment to be more relevant, without being intrusive or eye-catching.
