Human focussed, not technology centric
Create your own personal driving assistant
Purpose built just for driving
OTTO is a voice controlled application for your mobile. Whenever we describe OTTO, we are commonly asked “doesn’t SIRI do that on my iPhone” or “Google can do that on my Android phone.”
But not all voice controlled assistants are created equal!
Nobody would argue that SIRI and Google are amazing pieces of technology. You can find out almost anything about anything. But when it comes to driving, they are not built specifically for this purpose.
This video illustrates some of the differences between OTTO and the major competing platforms.

OTTO is the offspring of Australian company Gizmosis, which has been researching the “intelligent car” space since 2007.
Gizmosis was founded by Alex Kain, a tech entrepreneur with several other businesses in the IT space.
What initially began as a dream to recapture the innovation of the TV show Knight Rider, quickly turned into a desire to make a difference in the lives of those who text and drive.
With distracted driving being a global epidemic, OTTO is the fruit of years of development into a realistic solution to the problem.
Today’s Smartphones are an amazing piece of technology. They enable us to stay in touch, keep informed and be entertained almost anywhere, any time. But that freedom comes with a responsibility, especially when driving!
Although it is illegal to text and drive in many parts of the world, people continue to do it, not only breaking the law, but endangering their lives and those of others.
Some people think they are capable enough drivers to simultaneously read a text message and pay attention to the road. Others reply to a text when stopped at the traffic lights and justify this as safe.
Would you get on a plane if you were told just before boarding that due to some issues it had a 10x greater chance of crashing than the next flight leaving in 1 hour?
The fact is that texting while driving makes you 23x more likely to crash!
So what’s the solution?
