There are two stages in this research. First, using questionnaire and interview to find out the requirements of object locator and the preference of interface design for seniors. Second, using the relative products in the market to analyze the design factors to object locator. The major factors of object locator’s interface are direction and distance. Pattern, arrow, and words are standing for direction. Signal, Pattern, and numbers stand for distance. By 3x3 mixed examination to design 9 combination cards, we recorded the responding time and accuracy as performance evaluation to undergo the experiment and to collect questionnaire after experiment. According to this research, the best interface design of distance for seniors is words, and the best interface of direction is arrow symbol which resulted in better accuracy, time saving, and user friendly.
