Car safety is an essential aspect of everyday life. With an increasing number of vehicles on the road, it's more important than ever to ensure the well-being of drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. Ready to tackle this mission is CarKenny, a car safety startup that uses Smartcar’s API to share critical safety information to users, connecting multiple family vehicles all in one app. This process provides drivers with a greater protection and peace of mind on the road.
The idea for CarKenny was born from a routine traffic stop. Recognizing a need in the market for a tool to track and record speed, the company’s founder, Kennith Burks, decided to create a platform that could integrate GPS tracking, remote access, vehicle diagnostics, and more all in one place. The app centralizes vehicle safety and provides real-time AI-powered data analysis, specifically for families with teenage drivers. Now, CarKenny users, including peer-to-peer car sharing owners, can monitor, track, and report on odometer readings, fuel levels, and other crucial vehicle data using Smartcar’s API.

36% of Americans own multiple vehicles from different brands, therefore requiring two or more apps for routine vehicle monitoring and safety. The Smartcar and CarKenny integration solves this issue by providing a one-stop shop for both car safety and regular vehicle maintenance. While Smartcar assures a connected car experience through a unified, secure, and hardware-free developer platform, CarKenny’s patent-pending solution utilizes artificial intelligence, machine learning, and advanced sensor technology to promote safe, secure, and regulated driving.
The Smartcar and CarKenny integration provides customers with an easy, consistent view of vehicle telematics. But while the company remains focused on ensuring vehicle safety for all, it’s looking ahead to a more connected future. The organization currently has plans to democratize vehicle security for the growing shared vehicle market, by creating a mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) platform to book, plan, and pay for any mode of transportation equipped with CarKenny’s tools.
