Introducing the AutoPi

A revolutionary device based on the Raspberry Pi™
The first extendable Internet-of-Things (IoT) platform for your car Revealing the AutoPi

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.

AutoPi Dongle

With built-in Internet access through a 3G/4G connection plus Bluetooth and WiFi, depending on your model.

An embedded Raspberry Pi Zero enables the AutoPi dongle to do almost anything.

Real-time tracking of vehicle position, speed and altitude. Includes A-GPS which significantly improves performance.

Advanced OBD-II chip by ScanTool™. Flagship model STN-1170 with 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.

AutoPi Cloud


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.

SMS/Email alerts

Get alerts through your triggers. Available through platforms like SMS, Email, Socialmedias or push messages.

Remote monitoring

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.

Historical Trips

Go back in history and review performance data per trip.
