Beta Version of a Mobile App
Problem: Carpooling for work related travel.
Solution: GPRS enabled quick and safe Carpooling app.
This can be placed in the context of increasing population, increasing per head vehicle owning, more people taking their individual vehicles for daily travel and no to few actually working systems that can enable carpooling.
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) can play an important role in making these systems user-friendly, easy to manage, and efficient. There is an important need to tightly integrate the different types of technology and to develop an effective system architecture.
Out of the three ITS based systems (i) GPRS and Bluetooth based (ii) Vanet (Vehicular Adhoc Network) based (iii) RFID based, we chose to use the first one to develop the Beta version of the app with the bare skeletal necessities required at this stage.
We carried out individual interviews, a good way to show you how a particular user works. They enable you to get detailed information about a user's attitudes, desires, and experiences. Helps understand user, design, create content and refine.
So as to launch lean we needed to figure out users' prioritization of the products's features and benefits. For this we carried out an indirect Card Sorting exercise to help us figure out our users' motivations and priorities.
Due to heavy usage possibilities and the Beta being launched on the Android platform we decided to stick to a simple, scalable and widely used language, Material Design. The native fonts, colors, layout elements, motions and size-ratio aspects have been used to complete the UI.
This is how it finally came out...
Trust and security being key points to take care for we enabled a Blacklisting and a Women-Only Car feature.
Soon you shall be able to share rides to work, save time and the environment in a fun and social way. We hope you enjoy WorkPool!
