A UK firm, Nebula Systems, has picked up this year’s prestigious TU-Automotive award for Best Aftermarket Telematics Product/Service – after being nominated for best newcomer just two-years-ago.
Nebula Systems, part of the RAC group of companies, won the accolade for their cloud diagnostic platform MECH5. The Buckingham-based company acquired by the RAC in 2016, is a specialist in developing cloud-based diagnostic tools for the motor repair industry.
The award-winning MECH5 product has proved to be highly disruptive in the market due to its cloud-based model and diagnostic capability, giving the local garage mechanic the kind of tools usually only available at large dealer centres.
The diagnostic capability at the heart of the MECH5 product is now in the advanced stages of integration into RAC telematics units.
Nebula Systems saw off strong competition from within the sector to pick up the award, which was announced at a ceremony in Novi, Detroit USA on June 6th.
The TU-Automotive awards represent the highlight of the year for the connected car industry with each award category being judged by an array of influential industry experts.
Nebula Systems CEO Roman Di Lullo, in his acceptance speech, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled for MECH5 to be recognised by the industry in this way especially since it was only two years ago that we were nominated for newcomer of the year.
“We have some very exciting new services in the pipeline that have MECH5 at their core so we’re very much looking forward to launching them in the near future.”
RAC Connected Solutions MD Nick Walker added: “We are absolutely delighted for the Nebula founders that they have won this award. It reinforces the decision at RAC to invest in Nebula. But more importantly it gives our Connected solution a further lead.”
