Make Driving Safer for Everyone

Invest in Exploride

"Over 421,000 people in the United States are injured in a crash because of distracted driving, and the number is only getting higher. The temptation for most drivers to answer a call or check a message is an ever-present and real danger to everyone.  


We started Exploride because we saw the impact distracted driving had on our communities, and we believed a solution needed to be found.  Most cars today have built-in technology to connect a phone, but those devices are not adapted to the real needs connected consumers demand.  Our solution is simple, cost effective, and works with most cars.  The market for Exploride is huge and with the capital, we are raising from our community, we will make driving safer and more connected than ever.


Last year we raised over $1.3 M from excited consumers, and now we're excited to let you all in on the action."


-Sunil Vallath, Founder and CEO

This helps keep the driver focused on the road at all times. A driver can access Exploride with simple gestures and voice. The driver's phone is connected using Bluetooth and the car's vital information is connected via the OBD adaptor (available in most cars).


It's a Navigation Device

Using HERE Maps with our navigation interface, a driver has the most accurate, up-to-the-minute information to navigate to his/her destination. Our product even includes offline maps. Get all traffic alert, speed limit, turn by turn indications, landmarks, and other necessary map data. Even the speed of the car is signaled, eliminating the distraction looking at the dashboard.

It Makes Phone Calls

When the driver receives a phone call, the photo and name of the caller appear (if available) in the line of sight. The driver merely has to use a left swipe gesture to answer the call or use the swipe right gesture to reject the call.


There is no more distraction looking at a phone or a dashboard when hearing an incoming call.




It Provides Phone Notifications Safely

Young drivers are texting while driving.  With Exploride, a notification of a text arrives in the line of sight of the driver with the name, photo (if available) and text of the message.

Entering the Connected Car Market

Review by Victor Muller - CEO of Spyker Automobiles

The connected car market is expected to reach $160 Billion by 2020. Global Head-Up Display market is expected to reach $9B by 2020. 


Source: Business Intelligence, Booz & Company, McKinsey & Company. Read more about the Connected Car industry.


The initial revenue source for Exploride is through Hardware sales. In coming years, Exploride can monetize via platform licensing for OEM's, Application sales, subscription models, Location-based advertisements, backend analysis and insurance partnerships. 


Our IP is defensible with registered patent and 6+ in the process, and we have a scalable business model. Our burn rate is low, and we have a fast development team. We are determined to provide a better experience at a competitive price.

OEM Integration

Exploride has officially partnered with Spyker Automobiles, a luxury car manufacturer based in Dutch. With this partnership, Exploride will provide technology integration for augmented reality windshields in Spyker cars. According to a release, Exploride's connected car suite will augment the driving experience via advanced navigation, predictive maintenance and vehicle-centric services, external mobile experiences and over-the-air updates on the car windshield.


We see this as a great start to enhance our platform abilities and backend solutions. We are currently working with a couple of other auto companies for OEM integration.  

How Do We Make Money?

Exploride makes money through different channels. Hardware sales is a one-time revenue, but there are a lot of recurring revenues involved such as application sales or pro upgrades for certain applications.


OEM Integration

OEM Integration or SaaS-based integration is another source of income. We have two different approaches toward OEM's integration: 

1. Platform integration license for per car and an annual license fee.

2. Support both hardware and software. Monetize from both sales


Insurance Partnerships

The Exploride device elevates a car to make it a Connected car that intelligently interacts with the Cloud. This data is critical to auto insurance providers since this will help them to better understand their customers' driving habits and provide them with a personalized insurance plan.


Apps

We are planning to develop more intuitive apps for Exploride. App sales and pro upgrade options are a way to generate revenue. According to Apple Inc., application developers made $20B worldwide in 2016.


Data Collection

The Exploride solution leverages loT for Automotive service on Bluemix that can be used to view and analyze big data from vehicles. By using the loT for Automotive service, we can collect and process large volumes of data from vehicles.


Advertising

As per market studies, Geo-Targeted Mobile Ad Revenues To Reach $18.2 Billion By 2019. Exploride combines data from Heads-up display, OBD, Smartphone and maps to provide relevant ads for customers. 



The figures represent management estimates and are meant for the illustrative purpose. They do not represent guarantees of future results, levels of activity performance or achievements. Our product is currently in beta development stage and not available for retail.

Development Process

The Revised Shipping Timeframe of Exploride device is Q2 ( April - June ) 2017 ETA. Our priority is to ship the pre-order devices. 


The production phase comes with a whole bunch of challenges. Especially in the first batch, there are issues with quality and delays. A lot of problems are caused by external factors which need to be managed. The reason is that with software, you just publish an update; in hardware, you’re often dependent on others. 


We have completed hardware and software development. Our beta testing is going on for past three months, and we are resolving some major stability issues with both hardware and software. 

Our goal is to release a consistently reliable product and an exemplary level of customer service. We need your help and support in that process.
