Auto mechanics are notorious for taking advantage of drivers who hardly know a thing about the inner workings of their vehicles, and the Engie app is fighting this tyranny of the car repairman with its automotive health tracker. The combination hardware and software system monitors users' cars and gives them information on the engine, the battery, fuel consumption, and much more.

To use the Engie app, users order the low-cost Bluetooth-connected hardware device as an in-app purchase. Once the device comes, it easily attaches to the dashboard without the need for any professional installation. With the device in place, the Engie app can monitor a car's health and make recommendations if a driver needs to go in for repairs.

This tech startup has the potential to bring an IoT solution to the knowledge gap between mechanics and drivers.
