Challenge 

Two years ago Bamboo Apps participated in the development of the first version of the Jaguar Land Rover InControl Remote apps. Recently, JLR has presented the second version of the app suit. Bamboo Apps participated in the redesign project to deliver tech and design expertise that would help to offer car owners an enhanced user experience.

Solution

Since design and usability were the main focus, InControl Remote apps got a new upscale look & feel. Applications were aligned with the latest design trends and user expectations from connected services. JLR and Bamboo Apps teams have also rebuilt architecture of the apps and enhanced their functionality and security.

Key features

- ‘Beep & flash’

- Vehicle security status check & alerts

- Remote access control

- Remote climate control

Architecture rebuilding

For both iOS and Android versions, we implemented a native solution based on clean architecture fundamentals, SOLID principles, reactive approach, and CI/CD. It allowed to reduce dependencies between the layers of the system and make the apps more stable, scalable, and testable.

Design

InControl Remote application was redesigned according to new business logic based on use cases and user stories. Interfaces were reorganized and simplified. The usage of polished graphics, smooth animations, and streamlined navigation made the app's UX more intuitive, while UI became more engaging.

Design updates:

- New navigation to shorten user's path to key functions

- New home page to give a quick overview of vehicle status

- Updated journey details and map view

- Animations to make the driver-car interaction more intuitive

Enterprise Mobile Development

Native iOS and Android versions of InControl Remote 2.0 were delivered and was ensured the compatibility of the apps with a whole spectrum of mobile devices.

Also, our developers migrated the version for Android to Kotlin, which created a solid base for future updates of the product's functionality. Reactive approach to the development process also allowed to use the same app layout and design elements across iOS and Android platforms.

Security

Following the OWASP framework, we helped the cilent's Connected Car Team to detect potential vulnerabilities of the apps. We also employed the approach that safeguards critical application files and data. It includes: following the newest requirements for data encryption and storage, using official Google and Apple libraries, implementing certificate and public key pinning per OWASP guidelines.

QA testing

Bamboo Apps' developers and Jaguar Land Rover's QA testers work closely to ensure fast delivery of new versions of the application without quality loss. For example, after a series of UI tests conducted with the use of Kakao framework, bugs in Android API (ver. 26 and 27) were identified and reported.

Dedicated team

An experienced team of software architects, system integrators, iOS & Android developers, designers, and agile coaches.

Hybrid collaboration scheme

Communication with the client via regular online meetings, conference calls, as well as via frequent travel to the JLR's R&D center in the UK.

Agile methodology

Effective sprint planning, prompt delivery of product demos, and decision making based on comprehensive analysis.

At CES 2020, Rinspeed unveiled the future of mobility — the autonomous vehicle “MetroSnap”. Bamboo Apps helped innovation leaders, including Harman, Osram, and Zurich Insurance deliver a wide range of solutions focused around HMI & app design and tailored to the unique features of “MetroSnap”.

Bamboo Apps collaborated with Harman on the UX/UI design for a digital cockpit that consists of a shared area and two personalized screens. Our design team supported Harman’s vision of how vehicle services and applications can be displayed and customized in a most intuitive way. Also, we suggested a number of interfaces to highlight innovative features of “MetroSnap”: tracking the delivery status of parcels and detecting passenger health and stress by analyzing heart rate and breathing.

We cooperated with Osram to deliver high-resolution, information-rich animations, images, and contextual messages that can be displayed via vehicle lights and projection modules for various purposes: safety alerts, status information, marketing content, and more. 

Also, Bamboo Apps helped Zurich Insurance to conceptualize a digital experience for a usage-based insurance solution tailored to the needs of the “MetroSnap” vehicles ecosystem.
