About Aquiline Drones

With this app, everyone can use a drone for entertainment purposes without spending a lot of money on its purchase and maintenance.

The possibilities of on-demand drone services are endless. Users order drones in a couple of clicks and get a chance to monitor the perimeter, take footage of interesting objects or areas, or even film their party from above.

01

The Challenge

The initial idea was to create a mobile solution connecting users (people ordering drone services) with drivers (people who can transport drones, launch them, and make sure they do what they are supposed to).

Considering this idea, we have built an app that turned out to be functional, intuitive, and visually appealing. Aquiline Drones app allows the creation of a user or driver profile in no time and makes the order-making process much easier despite the wide variety of options. Now, all on-demand drone services are a single click away!

The Solution

While developing Aquiline Drones, our team used two separate algorithms because there are two user roles – drivers and customers. The first ones are responsible for drone transportation and launching, and the second ones can make orders and select the desired date, time, type of drone, and flight perimeter.

Both drivers and users perform basic registration and create their profiles in the app to start using it. They need to add their names, phone numbers, photos, and emails to complete registration in Aquiline Drones.

Geolocation

The idea was to let users select a drone’s flight path and specify the necessary location, flight radius, and duration. We have integrated the app with Maps and added two flight path options – “Point to Point” and “Area.” Using the first one, the user needs to specify checkpoints between which the drone will fly. The “Area” option implies that the user will select the location on the map.

Book a drone

If a customer wants to book a drone for some special occasion, he can do this effortlessly. While placing an order, it is possible to select a desired date and time when drone services are needed. So, the customer can book a drone and be sure it will be available on that day.

Select a drone

We simplified the drone selection process and made it intuitive so that customers can complete an order in a few minutes. When choosing a drone model, the customer will see its main parameters, the cost, and available flight time. So, it is really easy to select the necessary drone depending on the occasion it is needed for.

Profile

Both drivers and customers can create their profiles in the app and add names, pictures, emails, and phone numbers. The profile can be easily connected with social network accounts such as Facebook, Apple, or Google. It is also possible to add payment card details and check them in the payment info section.

Design

Our client wanted the design to be minimalistic and stylish.

So, when choosing a colour palette, we took black and white as primary colours since it is a classic combination. A beautiful shade of blue was selected as a secondary colour since it goes so well with black and white and creates stylish highlights. We also added a pop of red colour to display crucial notifications and errors that the user can receive while using the app.

We also decided to add some creative touch to the preloader. When users select specific options and needs to wait until the selection is applied, they will see an animated loader shaped like a flying drone.

Aquiline Drones design turned out very fresh and visually appealing, since we understood our client’s concept, selected a suitable colour palette, and added well-thought-out graphical elements.

The Result

Features

I was glad to be involved on all stages of the project since the team used Scrum methodology, so I was able to introduce small changes on the way.

Communication was excellent and my original idea became real thanks to the brilliant work of Business Analysts and Project Managers. Their prompts were always on time, hence there were no misunderstandings in the process.

I am absolutely satisfied with how my app looks and functions. It is exactly what I wanted to get when I decided to go with this team.
