Challenges

The company was preparing for the WebSummit, and they needed a reliable MVP for the event. PIX team already had a functioning backpack, but it was necessary to integrate the mobile application to the solution.

So, our team was tasked to combine the backpack with a practical Internet of things solution that would work under different weather conditions and withstand minimal physical damage. We assisted in connecting the physical object (the backpack) to the application.

Solution

A functional MVP for mobile applications that is connected to the LED backpack.
