Carmen is not just another gadget or piece of technology. To us, it is also for the common good.
Carmen was developed because we needed it, too. Like many car owners, we experience our share of car breakdowns. We told ourselves we ought to have a better way to solve this problem.
In 2014, while based in Shenzhen, our founder Sem started to develop the idea further and brought it to where it is today, a web based car monitoring system with intelligence and capabilities never seen before.
“At the end of the day, the goals are simple: safety and security.”
