Rally the Future Against Cancer

The Challenge 

The internet is vital in helping to research and treat cancer. We decided to join the fight by building the first Sh*tbox Rally connected car. The Rally is an annual fundraiser organised by the Cancer Council of NSW, the mission was to drive 4,000km from Perth to Darwin in a car worth less than $1,000. Our biggest challenge was to fundamentally change the way people interact with and sponsor a charity event like this.

The Solution

The Connected Car

Technology on a Budget 

The team integrated the car’s telemetry like speed, distance travelled and more to the car’s OBD port via GoGet car share technology, all on a shoe string budget. They then connected it all using broadband and satellite to ensure data would relay between car and website. This site would not only help drive donations in the lead up, but it would also become the ‘Dashboard’ for the live experience as well as the portal for ongoing donations while the team was on the road.

Interactive Experience 

The relaying of data to the website connected the audience, the drivers, the environment and the car in a truly innovative experience.
