Every driver knows the pain, to carry around the big car keys in one pocket, your smartphone in the other. I've designed a system with which you can easily pair your smartphone or watch with your vehicle and leave your keys at home. I know there's already key-less go which still requires a small chip to carry with you.
I tried to create an experience which feels like browsing in social media platforms, the user just has to swipe through the menu points or can easily tab to switch the menu to get the required information.
The app is not only suggesting what to do in which case it also is kind of your personal assistant. It carries a list of the workshop you have visited and could visit and match them with the workshops nearby. On request, the app can also schedule an appointment for you without even have a call.
Volvo is a family car, and families tend to own multiple vehicles. This app is not just an assistant for a Volvo, it is the assistant for all your Volvos. You can quickly switch between them and find out why the dashboard of your partner or kids is blinking like an 80s disco.
