The client, is a leading provider of responsible, renewable solutions that have excellent craftsmanship. This company is also creating innovative products that help save bees, which are simple and pesticide-free. Its game-changing technology, code named “MiteNot” seeks to sterilize mites, thus eliminating them, but at the same time making sure that the bees are not harmed in any way.
It is a compostable circuit board that applies heat to the honeycomb cells by sensing the reproductive cycle of the bee broods, and sterilizes mites by applying a specific temperature. The board has sensors and heaters and looks for temperature patterns in each of its 32 zones. Upon identifying a certain pattern it turns on the heating in the particular zone for a certain period of time, which kills the mites that kill bees.
The client wanted an app that enabled users to get more visibility into the circuit metrics and enabled them to make temperature modifications using the iOS app. The core focus had to be on the user-friendliness of the app as most users would not be very tech savvy. The UI and UX had to help users optimize app functionality in a hassle free manner.
