AutoPi.io is a new Internet of Things platform which is designed specifically for vehicles and can be easily installed on almost any car to provide a wealth of new advanced features and functionality.
Taking the form of both a cloud-based application and in car dongle AutoPi.io allows you to set up and program your car if it is newer than 2002. Check out the demonstration video below to learn more.
The AutoPi Dongle and the AutoPi Cloud make up an IoT maker platform, which allows you to add advanced features to your car and gives you a lot of extension possibilities. The AutoPi Dongle plugs into any car newer than 2002, using the OBD-II port. Once installed it connects and communicates directly with your car, making your car intelligent, with the help of the AutoPi Cloud platform.
With both a hardware dongle and a software cloud platform, we offer you some of the coolest features available today:
• Always online. Even when you are not in the car.
• Built on Raspberry Pi, running a full open Linux operating system.
• Extendable by you. Plug in or connect using USB, GPIO, HDMI, Bluetooth or WiFi.
