Prototype 7: The One with the Device Pairing

The user scenario

Jenny is often on the road . At the moment, she is in her car, listening to a radio interview with one of her favourite artists. When she arrives at work, the interview is still going, and she would like to continue listening. She is able to pause the radio and continue listening at work, via her browser or mobile phone. But also, when she gets home, she can continue listening at home, via her home radio device.

Prototype 6: The One with the Guaranteed Signal and Quality

The user scenario

Karl has invested in a decent hi-fi system, so he can enjoy his radio and music. Karl doesn’t even have to manually switch between DAB or FM. His new HRADIO receiver automatically makes sure he switches to the most qualitative audio and purest signal. Karl’s wife Sarah often crosses the border while travelling for work. Her HRADIO receiver automatically picks the best signal. That way, Sarah doesn’t have to worry about her radio reception and can concentrate on the road. Laetitia, daughter of Karl and Sarah, is often a passenger is her parents’ car. She likes to listen to her own radio station via her smartphone and headphone. Before, she often had difficulties listening to the show as the connection sometimes failed. With her HRADIO receiver the signal is seamless, and her audio quality remains excellent.

Prototype 5: The One with the Voice Control

The user scenario

Alexandra’s new car has voice control. It is very convenient to operate her navigation system while she is driving. She would like to use the system for her radio as well but sometimes the system misunderstands her or has a very awkward way of pronouncing radio station names. She wants her voice control to work better and smarter, so that she can use it for her radio as well.

Prototype 4: The One with the Recommendations

With this prototype, we aim to evaluate a recommendation system for radio stations that bases its recommendations on the metadata of the radio station and the programme publicly available. The scope of recommendations includes finding services that are based on the current listening experience.
