Jack asks Munic to support rollout of windshield breakage detection IoT device

Munic, an artificial intelligence (AI) and embedded technologies provider for the automotive and fleet sectors, reports that Jack, the developer of what it claims is the IoT’s first windshield breakage detection solution, has selected Munic.io to support its rollout in the United States and Europe.

The Jack windshield-mounted device detects windshield impacts, analyses the severity and location data from each impact using proprietary cloud-based machine learning algorithms, and then notifies the vehicle owner or insurer in real-time to enable proactive repair maintenance when required. With timely repairs, the goal is to mitigate glass maintenance costs by 50% or more.

In selecting Munic.io, Jack now has the ability to diagnose thousands of vehicle data sources, thereby ensuring effective predictive maintenance for their customers and also access to a range of Munic.io partner services including tyre replacement and bodyshop repair specialists.

Utilising Munic.io OBD-II dongles or the C4Max ensures a less invasive experience for Jack’s customers. The Munic.io devices provide Jack with the opportunity to integrate seamlessly, in a way that is invisible to the driver, with the device already plugged and powered by the car with no requirement to communicate via the app.

Jack also benefits from the powerful Edge computing engine installed in Munic.io devices (OBD dongle and C4Max) and the Munic.io cloud platform which collects, processes, stores, and distributes the real-time data of millions of vehicles in the field.

Data produced by all Electronic control Units (ECU) and sensors in the vehicle is constantly collected and processed to ensure that Jack’s customers receive the latest information concerning the condition of their vehicles.

Aaron Solomon, CEO, Munic.io says, “The Munic.io devices provide Jack with an open platform for the scanning of every car manufactured after 1996. While the OBD-II port of vehicles provides data, the Edge and Cloud solution analyses the data collected in the cloud and the easy-to-install devices along with cloud connectivity makes it the ideal scan tool for fleet operators and car rental companies, irrespective of the car’s vintage and brand.”

Nicolas Chorine, CEO of Jack adds, “We want to give the end user a more embedded experience and the Munic.io solution enables us to do that. In addition, the range of solutions delivered by Munic.io partners and integrated with Jack provides our customers with a wealth of options when it comes to predictive maintenance and fast repair.”
