June 2014 - Dash launches international, 175 countries.
February 2014 - DASH FOR ANDROID LAUNCH: goo.gl/pSKgg0
Dash built a technology solution that turns any car into a “smart car".
Low-cost hardware purchased from any manufacturer can be self-installed under the dashboard, paired via bluetooth/wifi to your smartphone, storing data in the cloud. Works on all cars after 1996.
The proprietary Dash algorithm uses a variety of driver safety/efficiency metrics to generate the "Dash Score." Score can be improved based on driving behavior, as well as, shared/compared with friends. Higher scores may also pre-qualify drivers for special offers and discounts.
Feature sets include additional safety, saving, and social elements, such as: crash detection and 911 alerts, check engine light diagnostics, time and location triggers, parts and labor estimator, MPG analytics and ways to reduce gas costs, trip tracking, and more.
Our technology solution generates a rich data platform - "the automotive graph" - comprised of over 300 pooled data points from engine sensors, smartphone sensors, social profiles, and 3rd party APIs.
Our technology works on any car manufactured since 1996, allowing us to access car sensors through the government-mandated open OBD port. We are hardware agnostic, allowing customers to use their own OBD II device or purchase a low cost option from a variety of manufacturers. We are multi-platform web/iOS/Android, and our application is free.
Co-Founders Edis and Langel met in 2008, collaborating at HBO. Edis was a VP Emerging Technology R&D Group. Langel was a Technical Manager, working on the deployment of HBO GO, as well as, the software for boxing's PunchForce. Their complementary skill sets and joint interest in big data and telematics led them to pursue the as yet untapped consumer and enterprise opportunity around data sets inside cars.
In Spring 2013, Edis and Langel participated as one of 11 companies in Techstars NYC.
Why we're doing this
We want to make the roads smarter, safer, greener, more affordable and more social. We believe that smart connected devices and data can help improve the way in which we live our lives everyday. There is tremendous opportunity in building the 'automotive graph', a data platform for driving.
