Introducing CCare:

Are you currently facing challenges deciphering the cryptic messages on your car’s dashboard? Are you seeking a solution that can enhance the intelligence and connectivity of your vehicle? CCare, an innovative project is designed to transform your car into a semi-smart companion, bridging the gap between you and your vehicle.

CCare is an initiative born out of a research project during my educational course. It was inspired by the frustrations and challenges faced by individuals when dealing with their dashboards. Motivated by my background as an Automotive student with experience in data science, I embarked on an extensive journey of research and experimentation to develop a practical prototype that addresses these concerns.

After conducting thorough research and experimenting with different data-related tools, I successfully created a practical prototype to address the frustrations and concerns faced by drivers when using their dashboards. As an Automotive student with experience in data science, I was inspired to utilize my skills and knowledge to develop a useful and intelligent solution. CCare is the result of my dedicated efforts spanning a period of 4 to 5 months.

Through the integration of connectivity, CCare simplifies your interaction with your car. By seamlessly linking your car’s dashboard to your mobile device, CCare ensures that important notifications are never missed, eliminating uncertainty and confusion.

Let’s envision a scenario: While driving, a warning light suddenly illuminates on your dashboard. CCare, will give an immediate notification on your mobile device, providing a clear explanation of the issue and offering concise steps to address it. No more worrying or second-guessing – CCare acts as a knowledgeable friend, guiding you through the situation. All you have to do is to stop your car safely and check CCare for the solution.

CCare doesn’t stop at dashboard notifications; it empowers you with even greater control over your car. Using your mobile device, you can remotely lock or unlock the doors, adjust the climate control, or even locate your car in a crowded parking lot. All these features are now conveniently at your fingertips.

What truly sets CCare apart is its user-friendly design and simplicity. You don’t require technical expertise or an in-depth understanding of automotive mechanics. CCare integrates your car and mobile device, providing you with complete understanding and control over your driving experience.

Wat is er anders/nieuw aan jouw idee/oplossing t.o.v. bestaande oplossingen? / What is different/new about your idea/solution compared to existing solutions??

Right now all the car brands only with smart cars have a mobile access feature, but for the first  CCare is going to change a non-smart car into a smart one, everything your car need to have is a connectivity method (ex: Bluetooth, Apple Car Play, Android Auto), so this makes the CCare an innovative idea itself.

Wat zijn jouw volgende stappen om het verder te ontwikkelen? / What are your next steps to develop the initiative?

The idea and prototype have been presented to a company in the Netherlands, further meetings have been scheduled, and with some suggestions and adjustments, CCare is going to start its journey of active development.

And while talking about in-app developments, the development is going to be started from the connectivity systems itself.

Wat heb je nodig om (nog meer) impact te maken met dit initiatief? / What do you need to make (more) impact with this initiative?

An estimated 60 per cent of people have cars but not all 60 per cent of them have a smart and fancy car all those 60 percents definitely deserve safety and accessibility, CCare ensures your safety by notifying you of your car’s potential alerts and does it in an easily accessible way, for all this process to happen to smooth initially a full-fledged tech team and support of a company which works with this kind of systems is necessary, with this CCare can take off its pilot program and all other necessary teams will be added along the way.
