First Avular, now Ulu. The Eindhoven start-up has received a substantial investment from the Chinese investor Yu Ming Fang. Participant in the final round of Startupbootcamp HighTechXL, Ulu has received an investment of 500,000 euros.

Ulu makes a USB dongle for cars which retrieves information about the locations, speed, handling and data from the central computer of the vehicles. This information is sent to a Ulu dashboard, where the user can gain an insight into all kinds of data about their driving and their vehicle. The Ulu dongle can also be used to track a car after it has been stolen or to notify others if it has been involved in an accident.
