PixelDrive is a fresh new project based on helping people learn to drive or drive in a safer way. It uses a specialised form of illustration called Pixel Art. Being based online, it is accessible anywhere with an internet connection. It is free. It requires no specific installation of software or setup of the users computer. It can help make the roads safer. It shows with clear and concise diagrams how to perform various tasks on the road, without any assumption. What is PixelDrive? Neil Magill | Pixel Drive Presentation
Basis of Project Neil Magill | Pixel Drive Presentation The basis of PixelDrive is for my final year project in University. This will act as my dissertation of sorts. I chose a driving reference site as it is one subject I am very interested in and effects the vast majority of people on a daily basis. Illustration is an area I would like to develop my knowledge of. I chose pixel art as a medium to do this as I feel it would challenge me and still allow a high quality end result. During research I conducted a survey. One question I asked was whether people thought an interactive version of the Highway Code would be useful. 45 people out of 45 answered yes.
Existing Solutions Neil Magill | Pixel Drive Presentation There are quite a few Existing Solutions that exist for showing people how to drive. The majority only cover learner drivers, rather than act as a reference for all drivers. The quality of these packages that are available is very poor, this covers both CD and web based solutions. Another question I asked during research was whether people found there to be a lack of driving information online. Out of 45, 26 people (57%) had answered yes. I would however suggest that not all respondents had looked up information about driving online.
Why PixelArt? Neil Magill | Pixel Drive Presentation I chose Pixel Art as a method of illustration for several reasons: A unique concept for driving illustrations. A simplified method of illustration, makes simple but detailed explanatory scenes. The isometric style is very suited to illustrating roads, junctions etc. It adds to a modern, fresh, informal and simple look used for the site. Illustration is an area in which I need more experience in.
