Tom Kowalick's Automotive Black Box Security MissionI'm a retired professor after 30 years with an intense passion towards enhancing vehicle and highway safety while safeguarding civil liberties, consumer protection and privacy. I am president of AIRMIKA, Inc., located in the Sandhills region of North Carolina at Southern Pines, and the manufacturer of a simple to use automotive aftermarket product for vehicle owners - The AUTOcyb (tm) Automotive Cyber Security Lock.
Since 1997, I helped create automotive black technology in light vehicles (cars and trucks) with high level national and international experience in Event Data Recorder (EDR) standardization, legislation and regulation. I am widely recognized as a true expert regarding EDRs and have testified to the U.S. Senate, National Academies of Sciences, Government Accounting Office (GAO) and many other places. I'm author of seven (7) books) on the topic including FATAL EXIT: The Automotive Black Box Debate.
This technology has the potential of reducing injuries and deaths but also has the capability of subjecting vehicle owners and motorists to unnecessary problems if the data is not accurate and secured.
My mission is to assure fair usage of automotive black box technologies.
Recently Congress and federal regulators failed to provide essential consumer protection. I took the next steps and created and manufactured a product to do just that. It is simple to install and remove and protects the security, integrity and authenticity of the data. You hold the key, not automakers, law enforcement or insurance companies. If others want to access your crash data they will have to seek your permission or use legal means to do so. Basically, this device protects your interests.
What We Need & What You Get
I believe this will be a high demand disruptive technology product that will put data control back in the hands of the vehicle owner. Businesswise, I have everything in place to take my company to the next level except funding to produce more units and marketing.
Presently 4000 units are ready to ship. I offer each person who donates $33.00 or more to this important project one (1) AUTOcyb (tm) - Automotive Cyber Security Lock shipped anywhere nationwide USA. The product does not currently ship outside the U.S.
I am also working on enhancing the product line with Near Field Communications (NFC) technology to create an Internet of Things cell app.
Bottom Line: This project is all about your driving protection - something everyone needs. Please share this important useful information with others.
