  • (1888PressRelease) April 17, 2015 - Estonian company BAMBOO APPS developed a first educational connected car app for ŠKODA Auto a.s., the Czech car manufacturer. The mobile application is designed as an interactive game to teach kids driving basics and main traffic rules.

    "Being at the forefront of innovations, ŠKODA Auto a.s. continually strives to improve connected driving experience by providing different types of in-car mobile apps. They came to BAMBOO APPS with an idea of a mobile game for kids, simulating the vehicle performance in a very realistic way and keeping all the brand elements of ŠKODA cars visual. It was a great challenge for our team and we do believe that we delivered a complex product with high level of functional characteristics and unique design", - says the Head of Mobile Development Department Igor Ponikarchik.

    The integration of ŠKODA API made the app fully compatible with the infotainment system of the car. Using the SmartGate system, ŠKODA Little Driver can analyse more than 40 vehicle parameters and all the driver's actions (speeding up, braking, switching blinkers on/off, steering the wheel). So the kid may easily repeat them and earn coins if done correctly. In addition to its elegant design and immerse game scenario, the application has an educational section with number of road safety rules and engaging tests for kids.

    "We went further by creating not just a connected car app but a mobile brand game that is completely aligned with the ŠKODA Auto a.s. corporate style and ŠKODA brand identity. Our team is very enthusiastic about the fact that the final product has fully met the client's expectations in terms of performance, competence and ability to reach set business goals", said Igor Ponikarchik.
