Thanks Deloitte 1! CarForce.io is on a mission to capture and scale the deep mechanical know-how that otherwise lives (and dies) with today’s aging mechanics. As cars become more autonomous, society will have an increasing level of live data related to vehicles in operation such as engine temperature, ambient temperature, elevation, road vibrations, and of course, mechanical failure captured by hundreds of sensors placed in key systems throughout the vehicle. Our job is to pull all of that data to our cloud and develop an autonomous brain that stores knowledge about millions of cars and trillions of miles of driving data to remotely manage, diagnose, and even predict and prevent vehicle failure. Success for CarForce.io means fewer vehicles breaking down and creating unhappiness for the people in and beside them. (For example, no more 2 hour back up on the Bay Bridge because someone’s engine overheated and now the driver can’t get home in time for dinner and neither can 5,000 other people.) We believe the car manufacturers could have built this, but on deeper analysis it’s obvious that this would require all the car brands to share data with each other ... which hasn’t, and won’t happen for a litany of reasons. This screams BIG opportunity for CarForce.io to take and own this market.
