  Since we started building miaLinkup™, our vision has been to create an affordable open connected car platform. We're excited to announce that miaLinkup™ has an application programming interface (API) available for third party developers. We call it miaAPI. miaAPI lets you write software for a smartphone, tablet, computer, or web application that can interact with your car via miaLinkup™ device. miaAPI will be constantly growing and improving, so be sure to check back often for updates.

ECUemu3000 is an ultimate tool for OBD-II software and hardware testing and development. It will help you to develop your application at your desk, instead of under your dash.

  • Support for all legislated OBD-II protocols
  • Five knobs assigned to frequently used PIDs
  • USB connection for configuration and traffic monitoring
  • Firmware upgradeable
  • Standard J1962F connector

 We currently have fully working prototype units.

Our hardware is finalized; software and app development is in beta testing phase now.

We have identified all of the components to be used in mass production and  have built the latest samples using those components. In addition, we have already started preparing  the manufacturing of per-production 100 units.

 We are fellow professionals with different expertise but working on the same mission. Our team is well-balanced with complementary skills. We have a great team of embedded hardware and software engineers, RF engineer, software engineer, and mechanical engineer. Our CEO/CTO - Ashot Avetisyan is specialized in very small wireless designs. He has been designing, and managing the production of various products for many large companies for the last 12 years.  Among some of his projects and designs, there are many wireless solutions and Bluetooth gadgets sold for cars by large and very well known companies in the USA. Some products currently are sold in retail outlets worldwide. He has been working  with many factories in China, and have years of experience in getting FCC, CE, IC, Wi-Fi, BT, PTCRB  Certifications.

Risks and challenges

miaLinkup is a team of engineers and designers who have individually worked on products used by millions of people, from consumer electronics to aerospace. We understand what goes into making hardware and we know how to do it. We spent the last year on testing and debugging miaLinkup, and we can proudly say that there only very few challenges remain:

* Software challenges include delays in development an app store submissions and general bugs resulting in delayed timelines. But we have mitigated some of those already. For instance, we have already built an early iPhone app and have already submitted work into Apple. We have the shell of a working Android app, which already has a working functionality. Apps already run with our hardware, and we also have our cloud service up and running internally.

* Since miaLinkup is a wireless device, it has to pass compliance and regulatory testings for the FCC, CE and IC. That could reveal issues that must be resolved before our products ship. We have already addressed this risk to some extent by working with both our RF power amp manufacturer, as well as a team great specialist at local Prescan lab.

* There are always significant challenges in manufacturing and delivering any hardware product at scale. Mass production isn't the same as prototyping. We have to make sure we have a design for manufacturing at larger volumes.

* In manufacturing, certain components could experience temporary shortages or long lead time, which could cause a delay. We are working closely with our suppliers to foresee such issues.

We will be distributing regular updates to all of our backers outlining the progress, as well as the introduction of any roadblocks that could impact our planned production timeline.

We have full confidence in the success of this project.

Help us get this production off the ground and bring this great product to you! The more supporters we have, the quicker you all will have more safety and peace of mind while driving.
Thank you all!
