The assignment was to design a user-friendly app for cyclists, that can be used with BBB’s smartphone bike mount & sensors and creates an added value compared to existing apps. The user needs and context of cyclists were analysed by doing user research. Based on the insights different ideas were generated, which resulted in a chosen concept. The concept was detailed into a design and prototyped with a app mock-up. The usability and safety were evaluated by doing a user study with cyclists on the bike with the app mock-up. The BBB FuelRide smartphone app allows cyclists to keep track of their performance and get supported to stay hydrated and energized during a ride. Real-time information is received with GPS and connected sensors for speed, cadence, heart rate and power via the Bluetooth Smart protocol. This information is displayed in a customizable interface. The app sends intake triggers based on the duration and outside temperature. The progress can be viewed in an overview of the consumed fluid and nutrition in a separate tab. When the user is out of water he or she can find nearby public water taps on the map and get directions. This way hitting the wall or dehydration is prevented.
