The Usability Heuristic factors for Sensors monitoring system A case study of laboratory Animal Research Center

Davit Sanpote, Worrakit Sanpote


Nowadays, information technology solutions are significant methodology to support and improve in many organizations such as governments, business companies, education and developed countries. In addition, there are several platform of technology is able to connect to people. Presence, Internet of Things (IoT) platform has an advantages value in terms of three majority points of view. Fast response, Support Human errors and Powerful Collector tool.

According to a newer platform, there are some significant point to research about user experience (UX) and user interface (UI). This research focuses on user’s interaction and their responses while they were using a sensors monitoring system to find an important factor of usability heuristics (USH) Jakob Nielsen’s 10 general principle for interaction design with two different software version. The first version has been used about a year after that researchers’ team collect a weak point factor to develop into a new version. Both IoT versions are used to ensure that these factors can be significant factors as a part of IoT platform development by using Chi Square statistical. Moreover, this result from Chi Square statistic method is a valuable key to implement a beneficial human interaction of  IoT system. Lastly, the case study has been used the real world software which is being use at laboratory animal research center(LARC), University of Phayao
