User-responsive notification system for household appliances

A computer and smartphone integrated system for the household appliances to work according to the user and with regards to the other people within the shared space.

Defining Palo
How can we inform the user without affecting their primary focus and ensuring that the notification system fits in the environment?

We are living in the world of attention, where our attention is rapidly reducing due to the high amount of notifications. We tend to reduce the notification amounts as much as we can as they can abrupt the flow of our other activities, impact our mood negatively.

Using various research and ideation methods including scenario building, surveys amongst possible users, designing the user journey, and morphological charts, I have defined the project and its applicable use cases.
