Introducing the AutoPi
A revolutionary device based on the Raspberry Pi™
The first extendable Internet-of-Things (IoT) platform for your car
Bring intelligence to your car
This is the device that lets you setup and program your intelligent car.
The AutoPi dongle and the AutoPi Cloud combines to an IoT Platform which lets you add advanced features to your car and gives you a lot of extension possibilities.
Make data visualization and asset tracking through widgets on your dashboard, individually configured.
Trigger external system connected through the AutoPi dongle or trigger external web systems.
Get alerts through your triggers. Available through platforms like SMS, Email, Socialmedias or push messages.
The system is always on, even when you are not near. Use it for parental monitoring or to monitor driving behaviour.
Add-ons from community library
Extend your AutoPi dongle by connecting external hardware and install drivers, widgets and jobs with a click.
Communicates with your car
View health, performance and driving behaviour with the direct integration to your car, through the OBD port.
Go back in history and review performance data per trip.

These are a few of the possibilities
The AutoPi.io system keeps expanding, this is just some of the things it could be used for.
Automatically start your car when you are within a proximity of 100 meters.
Control radio volume from noise level and concentrate on driving.
Save your pets with temperature control, even when you are not there.
Get remote alerts, when your car is moving and the seatbelt is not used.
Create a system which assists you in achieving the optimal driving behavior.
Auto Radio Off
Automatically control the radio volume when you turn down the window.
Build a system that automatically locks your car, based on your proximity to the car.
The AutoPi can help you avoid multiple collisions with the Emergency Brake Alert System.
Any external device can be connected to your AutoPi dongle
Get inspired by the huge potential of the AutoPi.

Switching from Raspberry Compute to Raspberry Zero
During the design phase of the AutoPi, it was decided to use the Raspberry Compute Module. The Raspberry Compute Module is small, versatile and expandable in a lot of ways, which suited the AutoPi project perfect. All the pinouts from the Broadcom BCM2835 processor is available through the SODIMM DDR2 interface on the Compute Module. This gave us a lot of possibilities during the design phase of the AutoPi and therefore the Compute module was an obvious choice for us as a main processor.
Build your own Black Ice Detection system for your car using AutoPi
The term “Black ice” refer to a winter phenomenon, where a layer of ice on the road is so thin it becomes transparent and thus appears “black” from the road below. This is a very common situation during winter times and can create hazardous situations for vehicles and pedestrians. The phenomenon often occurs when the temperature is right around freezing point and when a light rain hits a road surface which is below freezing point.
Raspberry Pi Dongle: How to Read and Reset Fault Codes From Your Vehicle
The AutoPi IoT platform is much more than your regular OBD-II dongle. But that doesn’t mean that it isn’t able to perform all of the same things a regular OBD-II dongle does (plus much more). One of the common things you would do is to read out details about fault codes in your vehicle. In this blog we will go over the details on how this is done with the AutoPi and how you can combine fault codes with triggers to make automatic alerts.
