(469) 2838043 https://900lbs.com/thehertzconnecte... This video shows the benefits of the connected smart app for Nokia and Hertz which was designed by 900lbs of Creative.
Here is more about this project: 900lbs of Creative was approached by Nokia to develop an allinone application for business travelers who use Hertz rental car services. The goal of the project was to provide any information the user may need in one easytouse app. What we created is a firstofitskind Internet of Things based app that connects to various devices and APIs to bring full functionality to the experience.
Our multiple APIs gathered information for parking, fueling, nearby events and food. This API integration makes it easier for the user to find important information faster and it eliminates the need to visit several different external sites. We also worked with Continental to bring bluetooth car controls to the app, giving the user the ability to lock and unlock the car, pop the trunk, honk the horn, and adjust the seat when signing into the app. The 900lbs team also developed the user interface and user experience of the interactive app, making us instrumental in the final look and feel of the overall IoT app experience.
This Internet of Things app is a proofofconcept for Nokia and Hertz, with future hopes to build it into a full functioning app that is available to the public. The Hertz Connected Car app had a successful showing at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain where it received lots of interest from conference goers. You can catch the Hertz Connected Car app at SXSW Interactive 2017! Stay tuned to our social media for more details on when and where this app will be.
EVEN MORE... Breakthroughs in smart technology are greatly affecting today’s business traveler throughout their journey. From the rental car counter to pumping gas, the Internet of Things provides us with a diverse range of possibilities that fuel those smart technology breakthroughs. The challenge is that none of these technologies are truly connected to each other. 900lbs of Creative was approached by to Nokia to develop an allinone application for business travelers who use Hertz rental car services, effectively bringing all of these smart technologies in a centralized, easytouse app.
900lbs was engaged to bring all of these technologies together through a modularbuilt graphical user interface with animations that worked together, flowing seamlessly. Our team broke ground by using custom, firstofitskind programming and development with a diverse range of APIs. The API from W Cities utilized GPS location (latitude and longitude) to find food and events based on user preferences. Continental’s Remote cloud key API allowed users to connect to a car remotely, giving them the ability to lock and unlock the car, among other actions. SAPs API focused on getting fuel, parking and keeping track of expenses. This collective vision was brought to life at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. 900lbs is helping Nokia and Hertz be on the forefront of making business travel easier in the future through the seamless combination of smart technologies.
