Realization of DriveNow CarSharing Services

The challenge

Realization of DriveNow CarSharing Services

To enable the CarSharing Services to be provided, BMW and MINI cars need to be enhanced with a CarSharing-Client in order to be able to check and direct their utilization. To allow smooth handling of car bookings a shared service infrastructure for the respective partners needs to be established.

Our solution

    • iteratec supported the conception and implemented the CarSharing-Client for BMW on an android platform as well as the Car-Sharing-Backend-Services as services of the ConnectedDrive platform.
    • The usage process is directed via external devices (vehicle, RFID-Reader, LED) connected through the android platform. The booking and billing systems of the joint venture partners are connected through the established ConnectedDrive platform
