THE APPROACH

The client asked us to create a road condition advisory service. We had to design an easy-to-use application for mobile devices that would help assess the condition of surrounding roads and then share the results to a single dashboard. Drivers would upload and rate the condition of the road which they use on a scale from 1 to 5. The application had to be able to plan routes, taking into consideration the quality of the roads, and also warn drivers about dangerous areas of roads ahead. 

THE CHALLENGE

Some of the biggest challenges we had to address were the following : 

• Developing an intelligent algorithm to calculate the quality of the roads.

• Implement navigational functions.

• Scaling the service to accommodate a large number of users from different countries, which causes an increased load on the servers and databases.

THE SOLUTION

We developed an intelligent algorithm to calculate the quality of the road surface, and built an application where you can find precise and up-to-date information about the quality of the roads. The application works on both iOS and Android platforms. 

THE RESULT

We developed a scalable mobile application that allows drivers to plan trips, assess and rate the conditions of the roads, while saving up to 15% on fuel and vehicle repair expenses.
