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.
Below are some of the use-cases that we see - what do you want to build for your car?

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.
Discover hidden functions in your car (using CAN bus sniffing)
All modern vehicles today is controlled by multiple Electronic Control Units (ECU), which you can think of as small computers controlling all electrical components in your car. Using the OBD-II port and an AutoPi it is possible to communicate with the ECUs. One of the ECU’s is called the Engine Control Module (ECM). This is responsible for communication with a lot of subsystems, like transmission, power steering, windows and doors. These subsystems communicates on a network bus called Controller Area Network (CAN), by broadcasting messages on the bus.
Safely lend out your car with Parental Control and Teen Driver Mode from AutoPi
So your teenage son (or daughter) just received his driver’s licence after a period of learning. But you keep worrying about the skills and experience your son have. Will he be able to handle hazardous traffic situations? Will he be able to keep calm and maintain eyes on the road? And you are right to worry, the most common cause of death among teens are caused by driving related incidents. When we are in our younger ages we feel more invincible and this causes us to take higher risks. This also applies in traffic, which is why death rate declines by age (until the around the age of 70).
