Suara.com – Wuling Motors (Wuling) has not stopped making breakthroughs in the form of technology applications embedded in its product line. After the WIND voice command feature and launching in GIIAS 2019, this time there is something no less exciting.
Namely the Internet of Vehicle (IoV) technology implemented at Wuling Almaz RS.
Through the MyWuling + application, users can take control of Almaz RS only via a smartphone.
Met at the media preview event of Wuling Almaz RS, Wuling Motors Product Planning, Danang Wiratmoko said that the latest Almaz has added an IoV feature specifically designed for Wuling Almaz RS users.

“So when buying a hospital, the owner will get an account. Later only the owner can use it,” explained Danang Wiratmoko, in Ancol, North Jakarta, recently.
Furthermore, he explained, that with the MyWuling + application, users can control several vehicle functions via an internet connection. For example, there is a remote control symbol that can open the door and close it again.
“This includes the rear trunk lock, which can also be opened. Then it opens all parts of the window,” he said.
One of the features that is quite unique, continued Danang Wiratmoko, is the temperature setting, and two sub functions. First start the engine remotely. Second, to adjust the cabin temperature.

According to him, because technology is connected to the internet, as long as smartphones and cars have internet access, cars will still be accessible.
“So actually here the purpose of connecting smartphones and cars is to help car owners. When you want to travel and are lazy to wait to heat the car first. Or when you enter the car with a cool cabin, using a breath of air conditioning, the car is cool, you can use this feature,” explained Danang Wiratmoko.
Another feature of this application: users can see the current location of the vehicle. For example, forgetting the parking location when you are in a shopping center. Then the user can see which way to go.
“So there is a GPS for directing. What will be inputted is the vehicle identification number,” he said.
The excitement of operating using a smartphone may raise questions, is the Wuling Almaz RS not prone to being stolen when the engine is started and heated? Moreover, the user’s position is not so close to the position of the parking car.
Answering this, Danang said, Wuling Almaz RS is equipped with a safety precaution or vehicle security system.
“We can only start the car remotely with the door locked. So only those who have an account can enter the car,” he said.
