San Ramon, CA -- May 12, 2015 -- The creators of My Driving Pal (MDP), a unique new product designed to easily track vehicles, individuals, or wayward children, proudly announces the campaign to fund it’s continuing development and marketing!
Have you ever wished there was a product that could monitor, issue alerts, and track your vehicle, bike or child or any other moving asset, but ONLY when they move out of range or are in your absence?
Introducing the My Driving Pal! The MDP Device and App communicate with each other via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). When the MDP Device and a smartphone using the MDP app are within range (15 meters) of each other, the MDP App tracks the asset and MDP Device goes into idle mode. In order to protect the user's privacy, all tracking data remains locally on the phone and is not transmitted to any Backend Server. However, when the phone is out of range and yet the object that is carrying the MDP Device is moving, the MDP Device turns on its built-in GNSS (GPS) receiver and Cellular Modem, tracks the asset and immediately notifies the user on his/her phone via remote push notification.
Not only for tracking individuals or vehicles, the MDP App also allows you to manually record your walking, running, biking, or driving trips. It shows the route on a map and updates the distance and duration of the trip in real-time in both US (foot, mile) and Metric (meter, kilometer) units.
The team creating MDP is seeking $50,000 to fund the follow tasks:
● Hardware Development and Refinement
● Firmware Refinement
● Develop Waterproof Enclosure (case) for MDP Devices
● Power Consumption Optimization
● Certifications - FCC, CE, PTCRB
