The ‘PlanetCar’ app developed by ‘BitCot Technologies’ has been announced as the winner in the $ 50000 ‘PLT Labs App Innovation Contest’. The PLT Lab app innovation contest was contested by 88 entries from 33 countries all over the world. The goal of the contest was to create an app that would make use of the Plantronics headset APIs for making business applications.
‘PlanetCar’ app uses the ‘Voyager Legend’ prototype headphone fitted with motion sensors to create an accident detection application that would raise alerts on situations that indicate a possible accident event to user-specified SOS contacts. Situations, where accident detection happens, include free-fall of the headphone and displacement of the headphones while driving, indicating that there could have been an accident.
The idea was unique in the sense it had a novel approach and that it also proved to be a marketable plan with a good target user base. The final presentation was done on May 18 to the judges’ panel from Plantronics and they were impressed with both the concept and the execution. The results were then officially announced on June 04, 2015, and BitCot Technologies was announced as the winner.
It is a proud moment for BitCot Technologies as an organization and goes to reinforce our belief that we can compete among the best in the world and emerge victoriously. We thank all our colleagues, clients and partners for their association with us and helping us achieve this feat.”
