Robert Vogt, Voyomotive

Robert Vogt is an expert in automotive and computer sciences. As CTO of Voyomotive, he leads the development of VOYO, a low cost, plug and play connected car platform giving owners unprecedented control to improve vehicle safety, security, convenience and fuel efficiency. VOYO is based on the world's most advanced OBD-II unit. It can be paired with wireless relays to control the engine, including the first ever aftermarket start/stop system. It uses CAN bus data, reads generic and proprietary trouble codes from almost all controllers, and communicates with the Cloud through VOYO's phone app.

Prior to Voyomotive, Robert was a founder of IOSiX. He is board member of ETI and holds BSEs in Computer Engineering and Computer Science, and MSE in Computer Engineering. While at UM, he researched biomimetics and vehicle safety at Toyota, and led the team that won the 2005 North American Solar Car Challenge.

"Winning the Launch Pad competition has been very exciting for our business. Through the advisors that we met, we have learned a lot about how to expand our product offerings and how to expand our business. Furthermore, the distribution contacts that we have made are going to be very useful as we continue to expand."
