Build connected cars apps with Xee and scriptr.io

This useful technology has been used for quite a time to diagnose problems with cars. Connecting these devices to the internet pushes their usefulness further, by enabling remote and real-time diagnostic of vehicles, turning them into connected entities. This capability opens up a lot of opportunities, such as implementing pay-as-you-drive models (e.g. insurance companies can create premiums that are tailored to the way you drive), improving fleet management (e.g. proactive – “lean” – maintenance of...
