Czech automaker ŠKODA is offering a tablet game that gives kids in the backseat the opportunity to follow along as their parent drives.

With the ŠKODA LittleDriver app, children can imitate the driver’s actions using real data from the car. The app makes use of ŠKODA’s SmartGate interface, which uses Wi-Fi to send vehicle data to a connected device.

LittleDriver is fully interactive: children can copy the actions of the real driver and collect points when they are correct. Steering, acceleration, turning, braking — everything that the driver does, the player can imitate on a tablet in real time. Speed, fuel level, brake status and oil pressure are also displayed.

At the end of the game, points earned can be used to design a virtual ŠKODA, which can be configured individually in the app. The ŠKODA LittleDriver app is available on the Apple and Android app stores, and is aimed at ages 9–12.
