Carbin is going to be the first smart GPS navigation app with a heartbeat monitor for BOTH the road and your vehicle.
Data collected over time will help us add 3 new driving options to Carbin’s navigation:
(1) GREEN ECO route → minimizing emission levels with lowest fuel consumption.
(2) CHEAPEST route → minimizing trip’s cost by accounting for: (i) fuel consumption-based on quality of roads and traffic, (ii) tolls and (iii) any possible damage to your vehicle’s suspension due to quality of roads.
(3) COMFORT route → maximizing the comfort of your ride with the best quality roads and minimal traffic.
ABOUT the app:
Carbin is currently in the development stage and over the course of next several months the app is going to undergo many design changes, which will provide you with valuable feedback initially after your trip (and later throughout) on your fuel consumption, environmental impact as well as efficiency of your driving. Carbin will be able to monitor your vehicle’s suspension in real-time → how your vehicle responds to different road conditions and if any of the suspension parts need replacement. It will also tell you if there is anything wrong with your tires.
For now, however, Carbin needs your help in acquiring a large network of data in order to deploy its machine learning algorithms to derive information needed to achieve 3 new driving options and to be able to monitor the performance of your vehicle’s suspension for safety and to save you money on repairs.
In addition, with derived values Carbin is going to monitor performance of roads by building road quality and CO2 road repair saving potential maps for the entire world in order to help your local public entity identify where and when to repair roads.

HOW it works:
Use it as any other GPS navigation app. Search for place and then click “DRIVE”. Or if you want to record data without navigating click “RECORD”. Please remember that data is only recorded when you drive. Your data is most accurate when your phone is in a fixed position: it could be a phone holder, cup holder, dashboard compartment, your car’s floor etc.
Data is ONLY shared when you press “Record”, or you start navigating. Files that you share can be easily viewed by exporting them from the “Downloads” section. Information shared include ONLY: GPS position and X, Y, Z, accelerations. Carbin requires no personal information to use the app and data shared is fully anonymous.
We extremely value feedback, thus if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please write to us at email@example.com
