    Very interesting and this opens up a big platform DIY guys who where as of now just relying on OBD data's

    Some DIY Example:

    1. If its 6pm, start the headlight after i start the car automatically :)
    2. On starting the car, do a auto screen wash and wipe :)
    3. Check all the matrixes at the start of car.
    4. Record driver based in car preferences, like audio volume, honking style, in car light preferences
    5. Integrated with GPS it can give details about car performance in a given type of terrian, thus a better planing can be done on basis of terrain.

    There are many things that can be done based on what all the api allows to do, weather its just oneway or two way interaction.
    Good for industry at large :)
