Unit1 needed to create an app to not only pair with the helmet but also add safety, tracking, and responsive features to make the app valuable and a core part of the product.
Ambient Light Responsive
Our development team was challenged to integrate the app with the helmet. Built in React native, they used a Bluetooth API to communicate with the different features of the helmet, such as fall detection and light configuration using BLE technology (Bluetooth Low Energy).
They also managed to integrate the app with a geolocation library, that runs in the background, to track user’s rides.
To make the experience more memorable, we designed a full gamified experience system as a fun way to gain engagement with the users.
To keep the users interested, the apps recommends daily challenges based on their interest.
We designed a full badge system with custom illustrations, to make the product unique and make the users feel motivated.
We created a level up system that goes along with the user’s growth, providing a structure that helps them discover every feature of the app.
We worked hand in hand with the client, as they brought the product to life while we built the helmet app. We ended up with a fully integrated app that transfers the urban experience in a beautiful digital and physical mix, with a unique graphic identity creating a stylish UI that matches the product and the style of its users.
