While the CloudThink standard allows any hardware supporting the standard to interface with its servers, CarKnow has created the CARduino as a highly functional, low-cost entrant for Cloud to Car mirroring.

The CARduino is based off of seven years of research at MIT, and boasts a powerful set of features. Details of the two most recent versions (next-gen and current production) appear below.
