NTADBM was a course that we did with students of SDM(Strategic Design Management) and IIMA (Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad).
A few applications that we designed during NTADBM.
Legal Eagle is a legal case filing and information access tool that I designed in collaboration with the students of Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. Legal eagle is designed by taking into consideration the technical feasibility with a major focus on the design and usability of the application. We also developed the business model to launch the application in the market and revenue model to sustain the same.
Legal eagle allows the user to file a case or FIR(First Information Report) using his mobile – in situations where he needs to immediately file a case. For eg. If his car is hit by someone – he needs to place a FIR against the person who damaged the car. Legal eagle also assists the user in giving insurance guidelines, access to nearest police stations and hospitals (based on the current location). It also helps the user to get in touch with towing agencies and garage to get his car fixed.
Legal eagle suggests lawyers to the user based on the nature of the case. It reports the case hearing dates to the dates to the user and schedules his calendar accordingly.
mobiDoc: An application that allows you to know the ingredients of a unfamiliar medicine, so that the user can be sure while taking the medicine. It also tells you the diseases for which the medicine can be taken. It also warns you of any allergies or side-effects of the medicine
A user, who is new to a city, has no idea about the distance between two places. He can only trust the auto driver or by asking someone the approximate cost between the two places.
But even here the language sometimes creates problem. For Hire is an application that makes use of GPS / GPRS technology to find the current location of the user. The user starts the app as soon as he sits inside the auto. The amount gets changed in real time based on the distance travelled. Here the auto charges of the particular city are automatically loaded. This avoids the user from harassment and cheating.
