Smart Kiosk

kioskSmartec gives you an Smart kiosk is a computer terminal featuring specialized hardware and software designed within a public exhibit that provides access to information and applications for communication, commerce, entertainment, and education.

Early Smart kiosks sometimes resembled telephone booths, but can also be used while sitting on a bench or chair. Smartec kiosks are typically placed in high foot traffic settings such as hotel lobbies or airports.

Integration of technology allows kiosks to perform a wide range of functions, evolving into self-service kiosks. For example, kiosks may enable users to enter a public utility bill account number in order to perform an online transaction, or collect cash in exchange for merchandise. Customised components such as coin hoppers, bill acceptors, card readers and thermal printers enable kiosks to meet the owner's specialised needs.

The Smart aesthetic and functional design of Smart kiosks is a key element that drives user adoption, overall up-time and affordability. There are many factors to consider when designing an Smart kiosk including:

  • Aesthetic design: The design of the enclosure is often the driving factor in user adoption and brand recognition.
  • Manufacturing volume: This will determine which manufacturing processes are appropriate to use (i.e. sheet-metal, thermoformed plastic etc.).
  • Kiosk software: The Smart function of the kiosk hardware is largely determined by the software program and kiosk software configuration.
  • Graphic messaging: Plays a key role in communicating with potential users.
  • Maintenance and thermal design: Critical in order to maximize up-time (the time between failures or crashes).
  • Component specification: Typical components include Touch-screen, P.C., pointing device, keyboard, bill acceptor, mag-stripe and/ or bar-code scanner, surge protector, UPS etc.
  • Ergonomic: Is important to ensure comfortable and easy user accessibility.
  • Regulatory compliance: In the US it is important to design to ADA. Electrical standards include UL in the U.S. and CE in Europe. In the retail space you have PCI certification in the U.S. which is descendant of VISA PED (relative of Chip and PIN in Europe).
  • Interface design: Designing for Smart kiosks typically requires larger buttons and simpler decision trees than designing for a web or computer based Smart . Catchy attractive animations and short dwell times are important.
  • Durability: The intended location of the kiosk will largely influence the construction as materials and electronic requirements are significantly different for indoor vs. outdoor kiosks.
