Mavizon’s Mavia is an IOT connected device that brings cars from as far back as 1996 into the future of vehicle diagnostics.
In 2011, with limited time and budget, Mavizon was in need of a total hardware redesign of their plug-and-play dongle, with the caveat that all internal hardware had to be ported over to the newly-styled enclosure as-is.
The Original Form Factor
Here’s the original device, followed by a collection of concepts John spun up that led to the final design.
Mason is a straightforward evolution of the client’s original concept, but with lit surfaces rather than LED’s. The slide-off clip allows the device to be removed after it’s mounted in the vehicle.
Since the dongle is clipped below the dash in a relatively “blind” spot, the LED indicators showing the device’s state had to be highly visible.
Safety on the Road
Knowing the health status of a vehicle is what helps prevent inopportune breakdowns. Keeping families safe and connected on the open road is what Mavizon stands for, and the device had to echo that brand integrity.
