The project boxup aims to develop 3 autonomous lockers to allow the rental of sports and leisure objects on public spaces. The concept brings to the population a maximum of relevant activities without having to buy, store or carry the material. With a mobile application, the user can know the places, the activities and the availability of the objects that the lockers propose. He can then rent the items from his phone, use the locker to protect his belongings during his activity, bring back the item and get rewards on his profile. BoxUp aims to offer activities of social nature, to a large public, in the heart of green spaces close to urban areas. As a first objective we are planning to build the first 3 lockers and implement the concept on 3 differents fields of the swiss french-speaking area by spring 2019.
Was ist das Besondere an diesem Projekt?
Boxup is the first project in switzerland to allow people to live differents experiences directly on stage, and without having to organize themself or to know the place. The application gives all the informations and do the link with the physical world to allow the users to spend a good time without constraints. This concept inspired by the sharing econcomy could improve and change the way we are doing activites in our city.
Several field studies with different stakeholders were carried out during the master's work. This step validated the need and viability of the project before defining its final design.
The project is currently under development. Several developers work on the application so that’ll be available in a first functional version at the beginning of October 2018. Our team is also working on a first version of the locker (MVP) that will allow us to perform various tests, and to present a first version of our product to our partners.
Then, we aim for a production of the first 3 lockers at the beginning of 2019 to guarantee their implementation in April 2019.
In addition to product development, the team is also working on several financing solutions, as well as various legal and commercial aspects. A partnership with HEIG-VD and the incubator Starmac will facilitate networking and bringing missing skills throughout the project.
