Our Mobile Apps Shift You Into The Next Level of Connectivity
SMARTPHONE APPLICATION

Autonet Mobile provides smartphone apps that allow users to control functions of the vehicle.
The look and feel of the app can be controlled by the model/make/year for the selected unit that is defined in a retrieved XML file. The XML file for a given make/model/year determines which buttons are available. The XML file also provides the name of the image files that are displayed (i.e., button images, background, logo, etc.).
In order to maintain consistency with other products and programs, the look and feel of this application can be modified to suit an OEM's requirements.
Users are able to set up an alias for each car (i.e. 24cb000f81 = Doug's Durango). Alias are configured through a my.autonetmobile.com account, and can be retrieved by the app. The alias will be used to display and control which unit is being controlled.
The app supports both Android and iPhone smartphones. Blackberry and Microsoft OS's can be added if sufficient market demand requires these models be included.
The app's user ID for each unit is the user's registered email address on my.autonetmobile.com. The app also optionally saves a password for each unit that will match the user's password on my.autonetmobile.com. If the user chooses not to save the password, they will be prompted to enter it the first time a command is sent to the server.

Automatic Crash Notification

Autonet Mobile sends automatic crash notifications to the PSAP in the format any OEM specifies. The three methods Autonet Mobile supports sending Crash Data includes:
 
1. TTY: Digital transmit the telematics data to PSAP in TTY format.
2. TTS: Audible "read" the telematics to the PSAP operator.
3. Call Center: Autonet Mobile call center will contact the PSAP and relay the telematics data.
 
In this notification, Autonet Mobile will include the lat/long of the deployment, and if required, any other data that may be desired/available (i.e. gyro data, impact sensors, etc.).
 
After notification have been sent to the PSAP, the TCU sends a notification to the Autonet Mobile NOC, where a service agent can follow up with the PSAP and/owner of the vehicle. The OEM and Autonet Mobile will jointly develop the correct procedure for this.
 
A text and/or email notification may also go to the registered (in my.autonetmobile.net) owner of the vehicle. This alert indicates if the airbag was deployed and that emergency personnel have successfully been notified. It also includes the location of the deployment.

Find My Car

With Find My Car, a user can locate their vehicle any time, anywhere. No need to call the police or pay expensive fees to a tracking service. Just go to our secure and convenient web site and see where it is. This is of course useful for stolen car situations, but it's even more useful for the times you just want to know where your car is, without involving law enforcement.
 
The web pages show the last date/time it received location information from the vehicle, as well as the history of where your vehicle has been, and configurable dates and times.

Geo Zones

With Geo Zones, a user can define a virtual geographical area to make sure vehicles follow approved routes. If a designated boundary is crossed, you'll receive a notification with a time, date, and location stamp. Reverse Geo Zones also can be configured to alert you to vehicles that enter an area you designate as restricted. This application can easily be accessed from any tablet or computer, or mobile device.
 
Autonet Mobile's TRU Technology is able to deliver this application in a much more cost efficient manner than other solutions currently commercially available. With Autonet Mobile, the coordinates of the configured fences actually reside on the router and not on the network, so fence calculations can be performed in the vehicle without using unnecessary network bandwidth, and without requiring network connectivity to be available. This lowers the network costs and allows the application to still function if the vehicle happens to be in a zero-coverage area.
 
The user can receive fence alerts via text or email, the alert will include a URL allowing the user to go to a map showing where the fence was breeched.
 
  • Alerts are configurable to be sent in the following situation.
  • A vehicle goes inside a fence.
  • A vehicle goes outside a fence.
  • A vehicle goes inside or outside a fence.

 
Fences can be drawn using a polygon, a circle, or a zip code. Each fence will be represented by a different color and name.
 
Fences can be enabled or disabled by checking a box next to the fence name.
 
The user can have alerts configured on multiple TCU's. The user selects which TCU he is viewing by choosing it from the "unit ID" drop down menu.

Speed Tracker

With Speed Tracker, a user can define a maximum speed that their vehicle should be traveling. When the maximum speed is reached a notification is sent with a time, date and location stamp. Users can also configure speed alerts when a vehicle is going a certain percentage over the posted speed limit (e.g. Send a speed notification if the vehicle is traveling 25% faster then the posted speed limit).
 
Speed Tracker can also be used as a virtual car alarm, for example you could configure a maximum speed of 5 MPH between the hours of midnight and 5am, and you'd receive a notification if your car was moving at all. This application can easily be accessed from any computer on the Internet or even on a mobile device.

Parental Controls

Autonet Mobile's Parental Controls app allows parents to monitor their teens driving habits and receive alerts when they break the rules. Rules can include things such as:
 
1. Call/Text Blocking: The teens phone can be blocked for use while driving the car.
2. Speed Alerts: The parents can set up speed alerts for specific areas and times.
3. Driving Zones: Parents can get alerts if their teen enters a restricted area or if they leave an area.
4. Curfew Alerts: Parents can receive alerts if their teen is driving when they shouldn't be.
5. Check-Ins: Parents can receive alerts if their teen is not where they are supposed to be at configurable times.
6. Seat Belt Alerts: Parents can receive alerts if their teen or their teen's passenger is driving without their seatbelts fastened.
7. Passenger Alerts: Parents can receive alerts of their teen has a passenger in the car when they shouldn't.

Curfew Alerts

With Curfew Alerts you can configure times/days when your car is not supposed to be driven. You'll receive an automatic notification via text or email that let's you know your car is being driven after hours and where it is.

Car Health Report

The Car Health report is a web-accessible application that users can access to periodically check the health of the car. Users could check the health of their car online, have periodic (i.e. monthly) updates emailed or texted to them or have updates sent only when an action is required.
 
This not only provides a valuable service to the consumer, but it allows the OEM to generate additional revenue by getting cars into dealerships for maintenance and perhaps extending special offers to the consumer.
 
We also believe that this is an ideal location to offer to the consumer additional applications and services that they could instantly add to their vehicle.
 
Autonet Mobile's TRU Technology architecture is able to abstract the core telematics data from the user experience and allow the data to be presented in any way that suits the OEM's needs.

Car Alarm

With the Alarm Notifications feature, users can be alerted when their factory-installed car alarm is activated.
 
The notification indicates what time the alarm went off and what triggered the alarm. The user can alarm notification alerts with text or email.

Valet Mode

With Valet mode you can become alerted if a Valet is using your vehicle inappropriately. With a quick On/Off toggle you can automatically configure alerts that will notify you if:
 
1. Your car has left the perimeter.
2. Your car is being driven at excessive speeds.
3. Your car's trunk or rear hatch has been opened.
