A solution to make truck driving more enjoyable

App and Web Development

Oct 2020,

Within a new ecosystem based on telematic data generation in the logistics industry, this project focused on developing a product concept for an underrepresented stakeholder of that system: professional truck drivers. The proposed solution enables better communication between multiple drivers improving their work environment and increasing safety due to more direct checks among them.

The
Challenge

Truck drivers have a very tight work schedule and are constantly monitored by their fleet managers. Every data-driven “innovation” in the last couple of years has made their lives more stressful – not better. The goals was to truly understand the user group and generate a product that could help make their work – and lives – easier

The
Solution

In years past, truck drivers used to speak often with other truckers via CB radio. For various reasons, CB radios are not used much anymore. The new app will allow for voice-based communication and other interactions with other people within a geofence

The
Impact

Our core idea is to help truck drivers connect with each other while out on the road. The proposed solution enables better communication between multiple drivers improving their work environment and increasing safety due to more direct checks among them.
