bright box LLC, headquartered in Vienna unveiled its connected car platform, Remoto, as well as the customer app solution “Dealer Mobility” at the LA Auto Show 2015 last month.
Remoto comes equipped with a certified telematic control unit (TCU) for vehicle installation, a web-based control panel to monitor vehicle status and vehicle information, and a customer app allowing the owner to track the vehicle and control it remotely.
The Remoto platform provides car manufacturers with driving data about their customers, while car owners benefit from the remote control app allowing them to remotely lock or unlock their vehicles, control cooling and instantly message the owner if the car is involved in a collision. Furthermore, users can locate their vehicle with a touch of a button.
In Europe, Remoto is hosted on servers in Amsterdam using Microsoft Azure Cloud and is already successfully used by several car manufacturers – including Infiniti, KIA and Nissan.
bright box will also use the show to launch “Dealer Mobility”, a customer app solution especially for car dealers that can be personalised and rolled out within a few days.
