CarbookPlus: A Community following the networked mobility trend
 
Pforzheim/Stuttgart. The new Online-Community CarbookPlus offers all drivers and vehicle owners free services – all concerning the vehicle management. It brings together interested parties over a platform, where they can exchange information. New knowledge is derived out of the inputs from each individual. Vehicles, Insurances, dealers,service work-shops will be compared, and important tips for the trip is made available.

The connecting of cars and the internet is gaining more and more in significance. “It is time, going by this trend, that an independent Community-Platform is established”, thinks Thomas Widmann, Businessman from Pforzheim, Stuttgart. In the year 2011, he began to develop this idea with his team. The result is a platform that offers many advantages to its members. Private people and even businesses can manage their vehicles here. To keep true to the community-spirit, the platform with all its useful apps, is free of cost. Everything is meant to be simple and comfortable. When each individual input from the community is collected, new knowledge for each member can be derived there from.
Comparison of vehicle costs and consumptions, dealers and service workshop ratings help to optimize vehicle costs and the driving behavior. All this, independent of the manufacturer or other service providers. An obvious advantage being the transparency, so created. Also fuel prices, speed camera information during travel, are valuable indications for any member. This will be recorded on the Smartphone, during driving, using GPS. The Smartphone transfers this data to the personal vehicle files on the platform. The management of an electronic logbook will be very simple. All information about the vehicle and the driver will be dealt with trust and security. The more the members, the more everyone profits. One thing’s for certain: the networked mobility trend is here to stay. Find more about the community under:www.carbookplus.com.

16 November, 2015        WidasConcepts, an innovative consulting company which offers Big Data and IoT solutions, today announced that they have developed CarbookPlus, a Big Data vehicle management solution for the automotive-industry in India. CarbookPlus is a free, independent and user-friendly community platform that brings together all the information about the vehicles, helps drivers and car owners take judicial calls on how to manage, monitor and navigate their vehicles efficiently.

Mr Vishwa Kiran, CEO – India at WidasConcepts said, “With more than 90 percent of all innovations in the automotive industry based on electronics and IT systems, there is no dearth of data being generated by these vehicles. The number of vehicles, which are connected to the Internet, is increasing. These send and receive data via the cloud. User can be networked via open platforms and exchange relevant information which also actively support the driver and provides extensive usage information.”

CarbookPlus essentially crunches data that is supplied by vehicles and collates information from different sources such as maintenance log books, traffic cameras, fuel-station data and helps customers take real time decisions. The driver can see useful instructions such as speed-camera alerts, traffic info or the closest convenient gas station. Networked vehicles communicate with each other and warn themselves of road works, accidents, damaged roads, etc. With added features like ability to keep all bills related to the vehicle stored on cloud via mobile applications, CarbookPlus helps drivers to get information available from a single source. Ultimately CarbookPlus reduces the TCO (total cost of ownership) of the vehicle for the driver or the owner.

Mr Vishwa Kiran further added, “Another feature is the community feedback, which helps users take critical decisions. Companies with fleet using this platform receive even a complete electronic fleet management using the platform.”
