Sharing is caring!

Silicon Mountain techie Zuo Bruno has won a special grand prize for an SMS Car Tracking App he created called “Zoomed”.

The Zoomed app received a 10 Million FCFA prize for best innovation of the year, for its scientific and technological excellence. The prize was granted during the 6th edition of the Week of Excellence organized by the Minister of Scientific research and innovation.

The Zoomed app is a car tracking app that permits users to track the location of their cars through SMS.

The issue of car theft is increasing day by day. That’s what prompted Bruno to build this one of a kind app for car owners.

Zuo Bruno is an ethical hacker, and founder of Zuoix. Zuoix is an Offensive Information Security Company based in Limbe, Cameroon. The Company provides security solutions and applications to companies most of which are based on the SMS Platform. They’re also creating a new trend in Technology which has been termed SMS-Of-Things.

The internet shutdown in English Cameroon was what challenged Bruno to build this application.

In an effort to recognise and award scientific research and innovation values in Cameroonians,  the Week of Excellence was put in place by the Minister of Scientific research and innovation.

The event ran from the 21st to the 23rd of February and was organised by the Yaounde city council. This year’s edition of the week of excellence was tagged ”scientific research and innovation; strategic tools for business and socio-economic transformation”

Silicon Mountain Engineers celebrating Zoomed’s victory

The Cameroonian government has initiated a tradition of recognising and awarding innovation which was never the case. This stemmed from the numerous innovations and digital products erupting from around the country most especially Cameroon’s biggest tech ground Silicon Mountain.

How the App Works.

In order for it to work, an MT3336 GPS Chip which has been programmed with a sensitivity of -159dBm has to be installed in your car.  It allows for GPS signals to be received even in the remotest parts of the planet. To track the location of your car, you simply call your car and it will drop the call after two rings and reply with an SMS showing the current Location, speed and car direction.

The app comes with other features such as:

VOICE SURVELLIENCE AND TWO WAY CALLING FUNCTIONALITY
GEO-FENCING TECHNOLOGY WITH SMS
OVERSPEED RECOGNITION AND ALARM:
IGNITION ALERT:
SOS ALARM
IMMOBILIZATION
POWER FAILURE ALERT

Inbuilt with so many outstanding features, we think the Zoomed app is good for car owners and transport dealers. Its never too late to secure your car from those car thieves out there. Contact Bruno now for your car to be ”zoomed’
