Bring intelligence to your car
This is the device that lets you setup and program your intelligent car.
The AutoPi Telematics Unit 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.
AutoPi Telematics Unit
With built-in Internet access through a 4G/3G connection plus Bluetooth and WiFi, depending on your model.
An embedded Raspberry Pi enables the AutoPi Telematics Unit to do almost anything.
Real-time tracking of vehicle position, speed and altitude. Includes A-GPS which significantly improves performance.
Advanced OBD-II chip that supports communication to all OBD-II compliant vehicles.
Embedded 3-axis accelerometer for measurement of all horizontal and vertical G-forces applied to the car.
Playback of voice notifications based on data from GPS, accelerometer, car diagnostics or devices attached externally.
Connect peripherals using any of the two provided USB 2.0 ports, HDMI or GPIO Pins.
Make data visualization and asset tracking through widgets on your dashboard, individually configured.
Trigger external system connected through the AutoPi Telematics Unit 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 Telematics Unit 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, insidents and events per trip.
These are a few of the possibilities
The AutoPi system is great for your projects, this is just some of the things you could build with your AutoPi.
Using image analysis to improve driving behaviour
Use external sensors to add new featuers to your car, like parking assistance
Connect an external display to create an in-vehicle dashboard
Keep track of your car at all times, even when you are not in the car
Get remote notification about important events from your car
Control your car remotely by sending advanced CAN commands, like unlock/lock vehicle

Below are some of the use-cases that we see - what do you want to build for your car?
Configure everything from AutoPi Cloud
With the AutoPi Cloud it's possible to customize every little detail of your device.
Connect your device to your own endpoint and send data directly to your own servers. Add compression to all data and setup upload triggers.
Configure the device to speak important alerts in the car.
Setup the range and sampling rate of the accelerometer, to get the exact precision you need for your project.
Create an OBD proxy on the device, to allow connections from third party mobile app, such as Torque Lite/Pro (Android) and Car Scanner (iOS)
Configure the WiFi hotspot of the device, hide the SSID and setup security settings.
Control the power management, to match your project detail, with settings such as critical level, safety cut-out, sleep timer, wake trigger and much more.
Any external device can be connected to your AutoPi Telematics Unit
News and recent blog posts
We blog about our adventures in creating the AutoPi.
Check out the blog for our latest musings.
2nd Generation of IoT Raspberry Pi Dongles
We have worked hard and diligently on improving, expanding our dongles and ensuring better and quality results in our devices. This is culminated in the creation of a new generation of AutoPi dongles. Thus, we are very proud to now be able to reveal the next generation of AutoPi Dongles. This new generation of AutoPi Dongles have the same look as the old ones, the same price and the same base features, but we have included many new additions.
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.
AutoPi: Using Raspberry Pi as a Parental Control or Teen Driver Mode
Your teenage son or daughter has just received their learners permit and you are worried about them being mature and responsible enough to use your vehicle or maybe you have friends who are irresponsible and terrible drivers. One way to ease your worries is in how AutoPi uses Raspberry Pi to make your car a carputer, basically having a computer within your car, where you can set-up limits and settings in order to control your vehicle in a Teen Driver Mode or as a Parental Control.
