Hey Developers!

Build apps for real drivers

Automatic drivers cover millions of miles every day. Our developer tools can help you power your apps with that data.

Universal Platform

Build apps for any car

Automatic works in just about any car since 1996, regardless of make or model. We take care of the vehicle-specific quirks and low-level stuff so you can focus on making a great product.

REST API

Trip logs and user data

The Automatic REST API provides detailed information about each trip in a driver’s timeline, including distance, start/end times, route, MPG, and more—along with corresponding user and vehicle metadata.

Webhooks & Websockets

Respond to driving events

The Automatic Events API sends your app real-time updates in response to driving events. Your app can respond to events like ignition on/off; hard brakes, accelerations, and speeding events; location changes; and even changes to the check engine light status.

Streaming SDK (Private Beta)

Real-time car data

The Automatic Streaming SDK lets 3rd party apps stream raw on-board diagnostics (OBD-II) data directly from the Automatic car adapter via Bluetooth. (User must have 2nd generation Automatic adapter.)
