Your access to the
connected car

  • flexible programming interface (API)
  • open to varied business models
  • use our plug & play solutions or develop your own services

One API. Endless possibilities.

Our open OBD-II platform for connected car data and the corresponding interface make it easy for you to develop and implement individual apps. No matter if with your own hardware or our unique OBD-II dongle: The required vehicle data for your specific project can be made available to nearly all end devices. Our connected car platform does not only cover most car brands and models, it also always stays up-to-date.

This is how we decode the connected car for you – and there are no limits to your ideas.

Communicating with vehicles
becomes a breeze.

More than 2.500 car models

Car diagnostics with expertise

Since 2007, autoaid has been developing diagnostic devices for cars. With our knowledge and experience of almost 10 years in multi-brand diagnostics and our pioneering role in online diagnostics, we aim to let our new telematics platform and the connected car really take off. We are looking forward to work with you, and we are excited to learn about your ideas.

Easily understand trouble codes

With the autoaid API, manufacturerspecific communication with cars from the 32 most common brands worldwide becomes easy. Only autoaid can interpret millions of trouble codes and parameters for thousands of models. So far, you have been limited by OBD-II standards. We now give you the full access to a multitude of parameters - a powerful tool for your business.

Tools and documentation

Our well documented REST-API offers comfortable access for communication with cars via our OBD-II dongle. Tell us about your requirements, and we will take care of making all the data available to you. That way, you can fully focus on the development of your connected car app.

Security for applications and vehicles

Secure communication

All communication with the autoaid telematics API is SSL encrypted and requires appropriate authentication, in order that nobody gains unauthorized access to data or vehicle. This extends to any connections between our servers, as well as to autoaid telematics hardware. We are using only industry standard security solutions, for example as being applied in online banking.

Secure data

Our autoaid servers are continuously being updated and monitored in order to prevent any access by unauthorized parties. Frequent evaluations of our processes, apps, and servers guarantee that we are always on the forefront of data security. On principle, all data on our servers is stored with encryption.

Examples of connected car data applications

Our API offers almost unlimited possibilities for accessing the data of particular cars or even complete fleets. This allows for a smart integration of any vehicle into your business models and processes. The following examples just scratch the surface of what can be realized with autoaid telematics and our API.

Remote vehicle diagnostics (RVD)

Only with autoaid you can read out extensive manufacturer-specific data far beyond standard OBD-II items.

Remotely monitor parameters such as service intervals, dashboard signal lamps, oil level, or trouble codes for ABS, airbag, engine, and much more.

Fleet management

Create your application for locating and tracking a vehicle to optimize the routes of your fleet – in real-time.

Add functionality such as real mileage or fuel levels. Optimize consumption and driving styles using our Eco-Driving modules based on parameters of the built-in acceleration sensors.

Vehicle log

autoaid provides all necessary data from the vehicle and the GPS module for implementing a precise and fully automated vehicle log. This includes a history of trip data and fueling stops.

Driving style and consumption analysis

Access all exhaust-relevant data sets via OBD-II and link those to the sensor data provided by our dongle, such as lateral and longitudinal acceleration.

That way, you will gain comprehensive information on the driving styles and you can evaluate ecological aspects. Understand how economical and responsible a vehicle has been driven, and implement ranking systems or incentives into your app.

Usage Based Insurance (UBI)

Create a win-win situation for insurer and insured. With GPS and OBD-II data, driving style and trips can be determined, and special policies can be applied for certain conditions and routes. Further, insurances based on day- and nighttime driving are made possible by the electronic vehicle log. Track the discrepancies in routes and usage hours for company cars, and set notifications and alarms when certain waypoints are reached.

bCall / eCall

Older vehicles don‘t feature the technology to automatically call for assistance in the case of accidents or breakdowns. With our telematics platform and the dongle, these services can be backfitted into most vehicles with an OBD-II port.

Get data about the location of the car, the number of passengers, and the event of triggered airbags.

Young driver telematics

With autoaid, create an app for novice drivers and their parents, using acceleration sensors and location data to track the driving style.

Receive an SMS, E-Mail, or app notification about certain events, such as leaving a predefined area, exceeding a speed limit, or extreme acceleration.

GPS theft warning & geofencing

Develop an effective theft warning app with real-time vehicle location. A timing interval of only a few seconds is possible and allows for precise tracking of stolen vehicles.

Define alarm events, for example when the vehicle is moved without permission or leaves a certain area (geo-fence). Receive notifications via SMS, E-Mail, or app.

Event data recorder (EDR)

Develop a system to recognize accidents and record according data. Moreover, critical driving events like excessive acceleration, high speeds, curb contact or extreme braking can be stored with the EDR.

The highly sensitive internal g-force sensors of the autoaid dongle register lateral and longitudinal acceleration, as well as directional changes.

Car sharing technology

autoaid enables you to turn most regular cars into car sharing vehicles without any time-consuming installations. Just plug our dongle into the OBD-II port. autoaid can detect and apply the commands for opening and closing of doors, as well as activating and deactivating the anti-theft device of the car – safe and convenient.

In-car delivery

Revolutionize the logistics sector and turn cars into personal package collection points. Your in-car delivery app based on the functionality of opening and closing doors and trunk will make it possible.

Your IDEA for a new application

With the autoaid telematics platform and API, there are no limits to your ideas.

Don’t hesitate to ask us about the feasibility of your app based on our technology. Rely on one of the most mature and cost-efficient telematics platforms on the market, combined with the most comprehensive access to manufacturer specific data for 1,500 models across 32 brands.

We’re looking forward to hear from you!
