Title: Developing a Gamified Fitness Application for Truck Drivers
Authors: Karegren, Marcus
Ericson, Anton
Abstract: A fitness application for Volvo Trucks’ Android based infotainment system has been developed. The purpose of the project is to increase truck drivers motivation for physical activity, by using gamification. The gamification aspects of our application are a point and level system, where the user is rewarded with points upon completing a workout. These point are then used to determine the user’s level. This means that to level up, the user has to perform workouts. The application has been developed with a focus on following the development techniques recommended by Volvo Trucks and Google, to ensure that Volvo Trucks have the opportunity to continue the development of the application. This has dictated the choices we have made when developing the application. The focus has not been to implement a large number of features, but to implement a small number of features in a correct way. This meant that a large part of the project had to be spent on learning and then implementing the different design patterns and techniques correctly. This resulted in an application that we are pleased with. The application follows the guidelines given by Volvo Trucks and Google and there are many opportunities to expand the application with new features or more workouts.
