Introduction

Welcome to the DIMO Developer Platform!

DIMO Check-in

🏗️ Developers use this space to check if DIMO is the place to be building.

The DIMO Developer Platform is the home for APIs, SDKs, and tools that developers can use to integrate with DIMO. Tens of thousands of vehicles are connected via DIMO hardware (AutoPi and Macaron) and integrated software (Tesla API and Smartcar integrations), and are available to developers via integrating with DIMO.

The vast set of DIMO APIs and solutions provide vehicle, device, user, and trips data that are building blocks to support a broad range of data requirements and create experiences that facilitate business growth. The DIMO Developer Platform also provides SDKs and other tools to help developers build and test developed applications.

How DIMO Works?

There are over 1.4 billion vehicles around the world today, so imagine the volume of data they generate. While you have a smart phone and smart devices in your life, vehicles are still dumb in many ways.

If you think about the evolution of the phone, cars are on a similar path, but the vehicles of today are kind of like flip phones.

Rob Solomon, co-founder & CFO of DIMO

The DIMO Network enables vehicles to be part of a network where users have ownership over their vehicle data (as an asset) and have the ability to earn rewards when sharing that data with a service provider. As a developer with great ideas, you're coming in as a destination or a medium for those vehicle data. Think of DIMO as the App Store for vehicles, you can now unlock superpowers of the industry and not just doors.

Depending on what you are looking to build on the DIMO Network, we support a variety of routes for you to follow:

  1. Be a medium: Build a hardware similar to the AutoPi and Macaron

  2. Be a destination (for vehicle data):

    • Building an app that creates users + onboards vehicles + access to data, similar to DIMO Mobile

    • Building an app that simply interacts with DIMO vehicle data

Building a new device

Building an app with the full user onboarding flow

Building an app that works with data
