Voyomotive, LLC, developers of VOYO connected car technology, has joined SAS’s Partner Program. This agreement with SAS will help Voyomotive bring vehicle data analytics to vehicle owners AUTO PARTS manufacturers, car service providers, and OEMs. Thanks to VOYO’s vehicle data acquisition capabilities, this agreement will enable the creation of apps and cloud-based solutions by Voyomotive that further enhance the connected car experience for the user.
Modern vehicles produce terabytes of information, but largely this data remains restricted by OEMs. While current aftermarket connected car products can only access less than one percent of a car’s total information, Voyomotive’s VOYO can collect advanced vehicle data and make it available through the Voyomotive Cloud. Through its agreement with SAS, all of this data can now be available to drive new business opportunities, including machine learning analytics and AI development.
The Voyomotive data will also enable streaming data to be ingested and examined in real-time using SAS’s Event Stream Processing in order to trigger personally relevant interactions with vehicle owners, OEMs DEALERS, and the extended ecosystem.
The Voyomotive platform includes the VOYO plug-and-play OBD-II controller as well as wireless relays to control an engine, software APIs for 3rd party app developers and advanced Cloud based solutions. VOYO collects up to 100 non-standard parameters from a car including features useful to assess driver behavior such as ABS activation, swerving, number of passengers present and if seat belts are being used. VOYO can also determine a vehicle’s operating condition including real odometer, remaining oil life, battery health, tire pressure, etc.
On many vehicles, Voyomotive’s technology can read manufacturer diagnostic trouble codes typically only seen by a service center diagnostic scan tool. Voyomotive has also created a suite of smart phone apps to lock/unlock carDOORS and trunks, immobilize the engine as a security feature, automatically crowdsource and post roadside hazards for all drivers to see in driving apps, and, through its recently announced LOCKDOWN app, prevent car theft due to key FOB relay and amplifier hacks.
