VIENNA and LOS ANGELES, Nov. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- bright box LLC, a provider of a connected car platform for automotive manufacturers headquartered in Vienna, will present its turnkey connected car platform "Remoto" as well as the customer app solution "Dealer Mobility" at the LA Auto Show 2015.
bright box shows its smart car technologies as a white label solution for OEMs within the Connected Car Expo (CCE), the integrated exhibition framework for Smart Car. Remoto comes equipped with all necessary components: a certified telematic control unit (TCU) for vehicle installation, a web-based control panel allowing the manufacturer to monitor vehicle status and vehicle information, and a customer app allowing the owner to track the vehicle and control it remotely.
Live experience and contribution
Visitors of this year's LA Auto Show will get the opportunity to see Remoto in action. The bright box stand will present an fully connected demo car with an built-in Remoto solution. Therefore, visitors will be able to review all functions of the connected car platform live. Remoto is a goldmine of data for car manufacturers. The bright box stand will also feature "Dealer Mobility", a customer app solution especially for car dealers that can be personalised and rolled out within a few days.
Remoto provides big data for predictive analytics
Both manufacturers and their customers benefit from Remoto. With the connected car platform, car manufacturers acquire the data about their customers and their cars needed for highly interesting and predictive big data analyses, while car owners benefit from the remote control app. It will allow drivers to remotely lock or unlock their vehicles, control cooling and even instantly message the owner if the car is involved in a collision. Furthermore, users can easily locate their vehicle with a touch of a button - an ideal theft deterrent and security feature.
Turnkey connected and cost-effective
In Europe, Remoto is hosted on servers in Amsterdam using Microsoft Azure Cloud. Remoto's all-in-one principle has a large advantage: it means that car manufacturers will receive their individualised, turnkey and cost-effective connected car platform within nine months. Remoto is already successfully used by several car manufacturers – including Infiniti, KIA and Nissan.
