Elon Musk Tunnel Project Analytics Dashboard concept

over 3 years ago from , vector illustrator

Zajno people have a passion for innovations. We are blown away by Elon Musk`s idea to move the traffic of the most crowded cities underground. After watching a visualization of 3D network of tunnels we came up with a dashboard version. https://dribbble.com/shots/3489674-Elon-Musk-Tunnel-Project-Analytics-Dashboard On the left panel the user will be able to select a tunnel section and narrow the information displayed down to a tunnel’s various components like metal sleds (which are also elevators), exits and entrances. Notification center will keep users up to date and show if anything is wrong right away. We will keep an eye on the progress of the project. Go check the concept video out! Here is the link. https://boringcompany.com

    No offense, but:

    Please Guys stop making Interfaces/design for every key- or buzzword. Just do something for your community, if you are doing something for free. There are some nice NGOs out there and they need help. They don't have money but they need a good and solid design. Do it for them and make the world a little bit better. Just go to them ask them and say that you will need creative freedom and than do something. Maybe you will gain way more success than just doing something for Elon Musk. This Guys will have an Interface Team within seconds.

    Every time i see some, redesign/design of this or that, i think exactly that. If you got time or need something for your portfolio just do something to help others. Everybody can create a fantasised Interface for a project where you can imagine what you want. But to tackle real problems thats way harder. I don't see that even as a training it is more an "let's do something cool" and gain some buzz. Wrong way, be pro active ask NGOs if you can help them. Then you will have a kick ass portfolio.

      No offense, but your comment sounds discouraging. It's easy to jump on the bandwagon and judge the "concept design" work, especially without knowing the context. What if I told you that the guys did free work for the ones in need more than you probably can imagine? If your true goal is to really make this world "a better place", then you should think more broadly and write articles about it, or gather people for meetups, to get some real outreach and make the difference instead of just commenting on some random post on here :)

      I think that experimenting with innovations is as important as doing free work for somebody. Plus, please check out my reply to the comment above where I described the context for this project. Hope it helps. Have a great day!

        No offence, but where the hell should I know that these guys did some free work? I don't know them, on dribbble everybody looks like a design freak trying to earn fake internet points (Doesn't mean they are). And yes i did also free work related to refugees in Germany. I also helped other designers by writing a book regarding app design and interface conception. I've created with a friend of mine a monthly kinda meetup where designers from my hometown can meet each other and learn from each other and we want to expand this. We also founded the first Sketch Xing Group that we know of.

        I think designing with no real data, no user stories, no development constrains, no real problems and without any distractions, downfalls, redesigns and iteration is just useless. Don't get me wrong. You won't learn anything by doing this. It might be something different if you are in the research department but this is no research, this is guessing. You only learn if you make mistakes. You won't learn something by imagine it could work. The real life works differently.

        " If your true goal is to really make this world "a better place", then you should think more broadly and write articles about it"

        I'm afraid that I feel a great deal of problems in the world today revolves around every tom, dick and harry writing their two cents about everything, and thus blurring the lines around which opinions are useful, and which are fluff. I can't propose a solution as I can't think of one right now. Though to be honest, I feel it sort of harks back to Huxley's idea in a Brave New World that we're all ending up reduced to passivity and egotism because we're all so saturated with the ability to self-publish every fleeting thought we have.

        I agree completely with Jan. You should be creating great things, not pandering to mediocre trends, and not just adding to the giant pool of distraction with fluff pieces.

      This is exactly why I keep coming back to DesignerNews on a daily basis and haven't looked into Dribbble in ages: Solid design critique.

    No offense, but:

    • What is the point of this UI?
    • What issue is this solving?
    • What help is this giving to its users?
    • What are the core actions for them?
    • The core infos to take from it?

    Real exploitation dashboards for such purposes aren't pretty, they are usable, and useful.

    This is pretty.

      • the point is to distinguish the number-driven data from the location-driven data, which is executed by juxtaposing the colors
      • the issue this particular screen is solving is for a maintenance manager to be up to date about the stats on tunnel region he's responsible for. He sees the status of overloads, the number of tunnels that are being used currently, the number of failures that need action and the number of alerts (warnings) that are out there in order to be able to analyze deeper (we're working on the rest of the platform) and make the right decision or pass the information on.
      • it helps users to get all necessary data right in front of them without giving too much of it and not to distract. The filter to the left-hand side allows to quickly navigate among assets or workers in the field.
      • the core actions are to be able to see the failures in the tunnels, be able to analyze their origin in the dedicated section later on, and take action eventually. The structure of this is based off of an AI-based prediction tool we designed and developed, that is being tested by Deutsche Bahn (major German railway company). It's also related to tracks and infrastructure maintenance.
      • the core infos were described in the first point :)

      Hope this helps you understand this. Innovative projects are really interesting to work on.

      Do you have experience working on similar industrial solutions? It would be great to hear your thoughts!

        Thanks for getting back.

        I don't think you have properly understood my questions.

        In order to carry on a design job, you need to have a very strong understanding and opinions about what, for who, and why you're working on this. Way before firing up Photoshop.

        Your answers do not show an understanding of these. I could have pasted that on any other design to explain it and it would(n't) work.

        I have trouble, considering the reference you're giving, believing DB is actually using something even remotely derivative from that in production. I'd be happy to see the finale product you shipped to them.

        Again, this is only a feedback for you to get on to where the real work is. And there are plently of insanely interesting questions to be answered in the dashboard spectrum.

          He answered your questions pretty detailed if you ask me. And stating that real exploitation dashboards shouldn't be pretty sounds illogical. Who doesn't like pretty? As long as it's usable and useful?

          I found it strange that you are so opinionated about a mockup shared on Dribbble without fully submerging into the project and design choices.

            This isn't a rant against designing pretty stuff, let it just be clear. However, on operational dashboards especially, the goal is to create something that is coherent with the jobs to be done, that is useful and usable over any aesthetic goals.

            It all depends on who is end user. hence my questions on the goals to achieve and the users supposed to use this.

            Stripe mobile dashboard (a pro dashboard) is a great example a really well executed useful dashboard that is also insanely pretty.

            Bloomberg dashboard is also a pretty great example of a really well executed and useful dashboard that is also insanely ugly.

            I'm under the impression that a part of the designer community is confusing detailed answer and pretty designs with meaningful answers and usable designs.

          Here we see an interesting juxtaposition.

          Walid, displaying the traits of a professional designer.

          Yegor, displaying the traits of a design student.

      Pretty and usable aren't mutually exclusive, in fact you might want to look up the 'aesthetic usability effect'

        You're raising a very interesting topic, but I'm not saying they are.

        Meanwhile, aesthetic over usability is the real issue of this design proposal.

          You actually did phrase it as one or the other - I just pointed out that isn't the case.

    As an aesthetic project, I'm glad you had fun, but don't fool yourself into thinking this is innovative without knowing the specifications for the job. You've made a nice-but-abstract map (who knows how scalable) with a few rectangles and text blocks.

    Looks awesome. Super smart move to create something on a trending topic. Haters gonna hate . Let them hate. I don't see this doing anything wrong. I find inspiration in solving my own problems through conceptual work all the time. To be honest the more they hate the more comments this thing gets hahaa. Will only drive more traffic to you guys. Keep crushing it homies!

    As a HMI designer & developer, I can't help but feel that this would be a nice consumer-facing overview to run on an above-the-line display in a departmental office or something, but for a working tool I don't think that the design appears to have the capacity to scale for the sheer amount of data that you'd be working with.

    I am not even disappointed anymore. I am just amazed by how the marionettes are being played. Behaving exactly like I thought they would. The only reason for posting this here, or on dribbble, is to get attention.

    This is just a project made to catch some HYPE on a TRENDY topic. We all do that sometime's. So good luck catching some new followers. Peace! :)
