ELEKS used the Apple Watchkit Programmer’s to deliver concepts for executing car commands without users having to take out a phone, or their keys. By leveraging the tools available, a team imagined a new relationship between the driver and their technology. The result is a connected experience that offers car control functions across six different screens.
The user of Apple Watch can gather relevant information about the vehicle directly from the watch face. A touch-activated swipe-through menu scrolls across six different screens. The technology would allow users to switch on their headlights, check the car’s battery life and set temperatures for zones throughout the car. The main screen offers a general overview of dashboard information, such as battery, temperature and mileage; the location screen keeps you notified of your vehicle’s GPS coordinates; a glance screen displays relevant information about the car’s condition so you know when its time for a check up.
