My role was UX designer on the SmartDrive Generation 3.0 mobile app. I collaborated with the development managers, product owners, visual designers and design managers to create wireframes with specs and user flows for the full suite of apps of SmartDrive, which included navigation, music, parking, Eco drive and guidebook that applied to infotainment-type services.
The challenge was to create a third-generation SmartDrive that utilized landscape mode and was used in conjunction with driving. So, factors such as distance since the phone was mounted on the radio console on the Smart car meant it was a couple of feet away from the user. We had to consider visual indicators such as font size so users can read and understand the elements clearly as well as providing a contextual experience with the driving task.
