ECDIS User Interface


An Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) is a nautical navigation system, used by naval vessels and ships. This particular product was developed for use as part of an ECDIS user interface for use in all manner of ocean-going vessels.

Ergonomics were a key consideration when designing the unit and an extensive research and development phase was carried out to determine the optimum form. As a result, the final product is comfortable for all users, regardless of hand size.

SolidWorks 3D CAD was used to refine the design in preparation for tooling and production. Throughout this process, the product was designed to maximise production efficiency.

The final deliverable included a full set of production drawings and documentation for manufacture.
