Drive Green – Grand Prize Winner

Category: Green App

Developers: Robert Hellestrae & Katherine Martin

drive-green-connected-car-appThe green driving team of Robert Hellestrae and Katherine Martin took on the timely challenge of addressing carbon emissions from road transportation. Their app, Drive Green, leverages Mojio’s open platform for the connected car and seeks to reduce drivers’ carbon footprint by providing fuel efficient tips & information, real-time feedback, and a safer driving experience.

The app features a carbon footprint calculator, a list of fuel efficient vehicles, eco-driving tips, and offers some of the best ways to lower car emissions. Additional features include core real-time speech notifications for trip events and warnings, plus easy access to core metrics such as fuel levels and mileage.

Both Robert and Katherine appreciated the level of detail offered in the Mojio Developer Center, sharing with us that they thought “the Mojio API and the vehicle simulator provide all of the necessary driving information to get started writing apps for the connected car.”

They hope to launch Drive Green to the public, via the Windows Phone Store, by the end of Spring.

Congratulations, Robert & Katherine!
