Cabcharge Meter

Experience + Digital + Product + Engineering

 

One of the world's most prominent payment companies looked to D+I’s knowledge and resources to develop its next generation taxi meters. This was a unique opportunity to fuse both hardware and software together to come up with a seamless user experience and interactive device.

The meter console is an innovative and powerful payment and application platform developed to meet the stringent requirements and rigours of the Taxi industry. The console provides detailed information about the fare including travel routes, automated toll calculation and addition to meter fare, online and offline processing of payments and receipt printing, making it a world-leading device in its class.

Colour and motion.

 

When developing the GUI we wanted to reconnect travel, time and money with motion, just the way it was originally and mechanically done. As a result we made the numbers rotate like the old drum dials. We also wanted to make the screen easily and clearly identifiable when the meter is in its main three states; running, paused and stopped. We decided there was no better way to achieve this then to mimic traffic light colours to clearly indicate when the meter is running.
