Hardware and software team for developing an umbrella rental machine

Hi there,

I am looking to hire a TEAM of freelancing hardware and software developers' for a job task, which involves building an umbrella rental machine. My company is Lonbrella, an umbrella rental service that provides high quality, windproof and eco-friendly umbrellas in London. We want to place our machines throughout London so that commuters can access umbrellas when it rains.

We have developed a design and needs professionals on the next steps, as we want to build a prototype machine for testing. The machine will ideally be synced with a mobile application as well.

With regards to the task, we are hoping you can deliver five objectives:

1. Analyse the worldwide patents with regards to umbrella rental services and develop an internal electrical system and software that does not infringe on any existing patents and is able to sync with a mobile application.

2. Develop a "blueprint" that indicates all electrical components inside the machine, and the exterior components needed. This would be given to the manufacturers to build.

3. Develop a mobile application prototype (for investment purposes).

We need to work together with a team that is highly communicative, preferably with updates and discussions on a daily basis. The freelancing team will be working closely with myself and the Chief Design Officer of our company. We also would like to work on as a collaboration style, rather than just assigning the job and only seeing the results at the end. Once this job is complete, there are high possibilities of future jobs.
