The AutoBot can be retrofitted into most cars made since 1996, allowing you to remotely tap into your vehicle’s engine diagnostics port and get information about issues such as cylinder misfires or fuel pressure. The device uses a 3G connection to transmit data; the information can be accessed through a website or a smart-phone app. If you need directions to your parking spot or your car is stolen, a built-in GPS will provide the car’s location. And if you get into an accident, the AutoBot can send text messages to emergency services.
