In the US alone, 424,000 accidents were a direct result of distractions while driving. Smartphones, dashboard, navigation system all rank high in top distractions. This is why we designed Exploride. A completely new way of accessing everything you need in your car in one place with simple distraction-free controls. This, combined with its transparent display, helps keep your loved ones safe while driving.
Everyone here at Exploride has a single focus, to make driving safer and more pleasurable for everyone. We are proud to have a working device, and to get to this stage has been simply rewarding.
We've gathered a team of gems - experienced engineers, developers and designers from all over the world helping us make Exploride a reality. Our ground-breaking research and development has helped us secure a place in a leading startup incubator (Startup Village) with the support of Dept. of Science - India / FAB LAB from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and seed funding from angel investors.
After two years of hard work, passion and dedication, Exploride is finally ready for mass production. We want to bring this technology to the mass market and we need your help.
A glimpse of the engineering and electronics
The design which can be seen mainly in the master video at the top of this page, and the electronics pictured above (blurred), are two generations behind the current final product. A number of our technologies are patent-pending, and in today's age of uncontrolled hardware cloning, we need to take intensive care of our intellectual property.
Reduce, strengthen, shave off a millimeter here, tweak a curve there, add reinforcement here. Exploride has gone through almost 2 years of refinement through research and development.
Aesthetics was refined over multiple iterations to obtain the optimally compact and sleek design. Robustly engineered and hand-picked components gives Exploride extreme durability (especially the screen hinge, and the car mount)
The end result - Product aesthetics and architecture are as cutting-edge as the technology underneath the shell.
The perfect colors, for visibility against all backgrounds
The minimum number of elements, for the least amount of visual clutter, yet giving you the optimal amount of information.
Each task reduced to the simplest and least possible steps and commands.
Numerous versions and iterations and tweaks before we finalized the user experience to offer the highest visibility regardless of brightness and location of your drive.
The end result - an interface slicker than slugs on ice, allowing you to do more than what you've been doing, easier than you've ever done it, all in one place.
