Inspiration and Exploration

We went through many design iterations testing out different visual design styles, controls, knobs that would look right while also providing the best user experience.

Easy settings calibration

Calibrate the power and boost controls from your cell phone. Making this feature interact via bluetooth keeps drivers in the car rather than adjusting settings on their cargo management products.

Component Styleguide

We created a component guide for the major elements used within the app. This was useful for designers reference of styles, spacing, elements, and reusable components.

Manage Trailers and devices

Adding a cargo device to your account is as simple as answering a few questions about your product and pairing it with your phone.

Enhance your towing experience

• Calibrate power and boost settings.
• Switch between timed and proportional breaking.
• Receive alerts for any fault conditions in real time.

Final Results
