Mobile application for managing automobile and communication with dealer
Mobile application allows users to interact with Honda dealers and receive multiple data about the vehicle on the smartphone or tablet.

Overview

Mobile application allows users to interact with Honda dealers and receive multiple data about the vehicle on the smartphone or tablet.

The first and biggest part in this project was to develop technical documentation, help client to define the most important points of his concept and then formalize it in the document. Only after that Businessware experts started the development process.

Architecture

The mobile app has two major components. The first one is responsible for collecting information about the car, and the other one is responsible for interactions with the dealer.

Application collects information about the car via OBD dongle. The information comes to the cloud server and only after that is available for the user. OBD dongle allows to get information about vehicle condition and the necessity of maintenance.

The user may also control the vehicle remotely using this app:

  • Check the status of doors and trunk (opened/closed) and then open or close automobile or trunk;
  • Start and stop the engine;
  • Turn on the light or sound signal;
  • Automatically turn on the warming up or conditioning car salon while engine starting;
  • Start and stop the engine according to timer and if the ambient temperature has changed;
  • Block engine start and send coordinates of the car location to the police;
  • Find current car placement at the map;
  • Get a notification about external influence (bump) or if the car evacuated;
  • Analyze trips-data and speed.

As for dealer-part of the app, it allows user to:

  • Search and view dealer details;
  • Contact dealer (directly or order the call-back);
  • Book cervices for the car;
  • Book testdrive;
  • Get assistance in case of incidents.

Dealer-centers may use the app in marketing purposes: inform user about marketing offers, send news about the car-brand etc.

Application has been developed for 2 mobile platforms: iOS and Android.
