Traffic signs app

Fiat Street Evo it’s the most surprising catalog a car has ever seen. It’s an app (for iPhone and Android) that recognizes traffic signs and transforms them into features of the new Punto Evo. The app recognizes traffic signs as if they were QR codes and it associates each sign with a feature directly related to that sign. For example; a STOP sign will tell the user all about the new breaking system, a CURVE ahead sign will tell the user that the car has an intelligent lighting system that guides you in curves. And the list goes on with every feature of the car.

But it's no fun just reading a catalogue. That's why Street Evo was actually a game. To get people to use the app, we hid an actual Punto Evo and hundreds of prizes within traffic signs. The first ones to come across gifts got to keep them. And in the meantime, they learnt about Punto Evo and its features. Simple!

Seems like a good idea, I just don't know what kind of people care about an app that tries to sell a car to you. Who will be walking around learning about the new Fiat so slowly and inefficiently as to download an app and take pictures of signs? Googling "New Fiat" takes 2 seconds.

Well said. 4 stars from me, just for the effort they put into it.

Have u seen the case video?
It's not just an app, it's a promotion.
The incentive for users was to find a car and many more prizes behind the signs.
That's the reason people used it and learnt about the car.
A+ for me.

Yes, I did watch the video. I missed the "hidden prizes" part. That said, this is beginning to grow on me :) I think I like it now too.

the unlocking prizes thing would've been key to drawing people in to using it, but it's a very good idea at its base I'm sure we'll see more people using everyday common symbols as QR codes from now one.
well done.

great idea to use traffic signs as QR codes but the different fiat options story is a bit boring
