Smart eCard – Videoprototype

Group 03, Videoprototype, WS1617

Everyone of us is affine with piracy and for each of us it is important to know where the data is being stored and who has access on it. This background thought brought us the following question: How might we empower a patient to control his own data and improve access to medical records?

The conceptual goal is clear: total unity and undisturbed communication between all health care institutions. Leaving the security by side its potential is huge. No more papers, no more physical data and no more time consuming documents picking, sending and searching.

Therefore we introduce Smart eCard, an improvement of the well-known ecard. Our eCard is equipped with a NFC chip to speed up the process during a stay in a surgery, hospital or insurance building by reading and writing the patient-customized data from/to the card. The fact that everyone is familiar with cards (for instance bank card, pay-ticket, driver licence…) made the decision about the choice of the form of our product a lot easier.

Our new concept allows patients to control their own data by storing their medical information directly on the eCard without using external data storage in each medical facility.

With the approach of storing for instance radiographs or diagnoses exclusively on the Smart eCard we mediated a wellbeing which each of us likes to have beside piracy.

In the future the eCard could be equipped with a GPS module to track the activity of the patients and store the gained information directly on the card to support further diagnoses and treatments. This extension can additionally be used to reduce the idle time in waiting rooms at medical facilities.


Social Cab

Concept, Uncategorized, WS1213

The last three days we had time to analyze the data of our user research and to work out a good concept.


On looking at the collected data we found out that the main problems of taxi drivers are the long times of waiting between orders but also the lack of team spirit and social network among taxi drivers. As everybody is working on his own and is paid by the amount of orders the competition is really high.

We worked out a solution which is called “Social Cab”, an application for any portable device as well as a website. With our application, taxi drivers can create profiles and communicate among each other. They can help each other by sending good taxi positions to friends or team members for example. Furthermore they can see the profiles and hobbies of other drivers so that it will be easier to get in touch with them.

With our concept the working atmosphere will be improved and the times of waiting for customers will be shorter.
