Vehicles have become more and more technologically advanced with onboard computers that diagnose and report issues; yet, limitations still exist. Onboard computers only report on the vehicle in which they are located. You can get information on that vehicle while you are in it, but what about the vehicle your child has away at school? Gluon lets you check the temperature gauge and fluid levels. You can even tell if your child has been speeding, if they’ve driven long distances, or have gone outside a given area.
Maintaining proper fluid levels, tire pressure and other things are critical to keeping your car running at its best. Some drivers, particularly younger ones, may be less diligent than they should be about checking these things on a regular basis. With Gluon, you can check these indicators on your car remotely, so you can remind other drivers when it’s time to add a quart of oil or put air in the tires.
Today’s vehicles have thousands of codes, gauges, and messages that can be displayed. Gluon brings an increasing amount of this information to the vehicle owner’s tablet or smartphone, anywhere in the world that you have an internet connection. Advanced safety features, such as backup cameras, lane sensors, collision detection, and parking assist will be integrated into the Gluon platform and are on our project’s development roadmap.
