Our mission was to give access to a complex control of commands for autonomous cars thanks to a centralized flow manager and efficient mobile applications.
Renault R&D is engaged in creating an autonomous valet parking service. Their mission is to make autonomous electric vehicles come pick you up at the place you would have been previously indicated and make them able to go back to their charging point without any human intervention.
We have worked on a global approach of the service to simplify and secure all actions of the car. Thus, we have developed dedicated applications. The first one aims at declaring missions while the second one aims at securing actions. This mobile ecosystem has been created in order to eliminate functional and emotional frictions related to this innovative service.
The design team priority was to conceive a clear and simple interface inspired by the brand codes with a navigation intuitive enough for the user to apprehend. Everything from shapes to colors and icons has been thought to make the application easy to understand and quickly transform intuitive use into habits of control.
Renault expected more than a simple work of service providers from us. They expected a true partnership. We have then made lots of iterations with Renault engineering teams and visited them on the test tracks on a regular basis to test the application in real conditions. It was a hand in hand work made to answer security constraints and iterate quickly.
