Of all the technology devices we use in our daily lives, perhaps the most disconnected from the digital world is our vehicle. Carnot Technologies makes Carnot, an IOT device that connects a car or a bike to the users’ phone and monitors the safety of their vehicles.
Started by Rohan Vadgaonkar, Urmil Shah, Pushkar Limaye & Prathamesh Joshi, all IIT Bombay alumni, Carnot is a plug-and-play device that lets users get alerts if their vehicle is being towed or stolen. The device also provides automated instant alerts to emergency contacts in case of an accident. Other features include measure mileage and vehicle analytics.
With the bike variant of the product, users also get the ability to share road trip details on social media and the indication of crowdsourced points of interests, like good places for tea, etc.
To use the product, users simply have to plug the Carnot device into the OBD port of their car, download the app and simply sync the device with the app. For cars, the device is currently available for purchase for Rs 5,999. Carnot for bikes will follow in the coming months and will cost Rs 2,500 approximately.
