Self-driving trucks or nimble e-bikes – ultramodern vehicles now have smart control software. Such technology makes truckers' time behind the wheel a lot easier and promises bikers more sheer riding pleasure. Regardless of the environments in which applications are used, the developers in Mobile Development at AKKA Digital – formerly GIGATRONIK – always ensure that their software is distinguished by a high level of functionality and optimum ease-of-use.
For example, new e-mountain bike "Turbo Levo" from Specialized follows a completely new approach in the industry: a general movement away from display and toward apps. No flashing screen on the handlebars disturbs the rider. Instead, all the functions of the innovative e-mtb can be adjusted by the Mission Control App developed by AKKA Digital. Unique so far: all interaction with a smart phone is wireless, via Bluetooth. The Smart Control feature controls the motor so accurately that battery power is guaranteed to last right to the end of the trip. And that’s the reason is why, as best e-mountain bike, the "Turbo Levo" won the Euro Bike Award 2015.
In less than twelve months of development, AKKA Digital created the easy-to-use app. A 14-member team of experts contributed interdisciplinary expertise gained from vehicle development and information technology work to the project. From concept to testing, agile process management was continually being played as our trump card.
