Nokian Tyres­skan

Web Designer - - Defining the Future -

Worn tyres end lives — Nokian Tyres and Vianor wanted to change that. The hy­poth­e­sis was that im­prov­ing drivers’ aware­ness of the con­di­tion of their tyres, and their im­pact on the safety of their loved ones, should de­crease road ac­ci­dents, and in­crease brand aware­ness and tyre sales.

Through re­search, val­i­da­tion and test­ing, Fu­turice de­signed an IOT ser­vice — Snap­skan — that would au­to­mat­i­cally mea­sure the con­di­tion of the tyres, then of­fer the driver the op­tion of ac­cess­ing the data, while sup­ply­ing in­for­ma­tion about the im­pact of tyre con­di­tion on pas­sen­ger safety and the op­tion to pur­chase new tyres. Snap­skan uses 3D scan­ning tech­nol­ogy, ma­chine vi­sion and the new­est web tech­nolo­gies to mea­sure tread depth and tyre safety. A busy Q-park garage in Helsinki served as the stag­ing ground for the pi­lot. The re­sults ob­tained proved that peo­ple are will­ing to buy tyres in con­junc­tion with the Snap­skan mea­sure­ment. Snap­skan also pro­vided Nokian Tyres with a new chan­nel for sales out­side the mar­ket served by tyre stor­age fa­cil­i­ties.

“Adobe soft­ware is still used, but we use mostly the newer gen­er­a­tion UX/UI fo­cused tools such as Sketch, In­vi­sion, Zeplin, Prin­ci­ple, Sigma,, to name a few. We try to com­ple­ment the de­sign work with use­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion tools such as Ab­stract or Real­time­board. We also have quite an ex­ten­sive ‘phys­i­cal’ tool­kit that we al­ways make use of in projects — any­thing from the Lean Ser­vice Cre­ation can­vases to the IOT Ser­vice Kit — all of which we have shared un­der open li­censes ” Mikko Heikelä Tech­nol­ogy Direc­tor
