ITS Friday Seminar – Connecting Cars to the Cloud, Nov 9

Today, almost none of the cars on the road are internet-connected. Automatic has built a product to do that right now, which leverages the smartphones people already have – allowing people to write apps for their cars. Automatic connects to cars and learns how people drive and how their cars operate. Drivers gain insight into how they drive and how their car works so they can save money and drive more safely and efficiently. Drivers also learn about their engine status and the condition of their car. Behavior change techniques learned from research at UC Berkeley are incorporated into the product to provide driving feedback and gently nudges drivers to be safer and more efficient. This seminar will talk about Automatic as a platform to collect data and influence behavior and look at potential applications in an internet-enabled car.
