The Car Genie, a plug-in car telematics device produced by the Automobile Association UK (AA UK) won Connected Car OBDII Product of the Year 2018.
The device stood out amongst over 3,000 nominations from across the world in the 2018 international IoT Breakthrough Award.
Car Genie connects with a car’s diagnostic system reporting data on a smartphone app, including battery health, vehicle location and driver eco score. It goes as far as detecting problems and alerting the driver (and the AA) before they lead to a breakdown.
Alan Ferguson, Head of Connected Car at the AA, said: “It’s a fantastic achievement to have won the IoT ‘Connected Car Product of the Year’ award, beating stiff competition and is a great testament to the design and development of our technology.”
