Making data and vehicle connectivity more valuable.
There are many applications that can be built using a decentralized and user-owned IoT platform.
In Phase 1, DIMO is focused on making it easy for developers to build these applications. During fall of 2022 ( Season 2 - Launching & Scaling the Network), we'll deploy the first apps.
We’re accomplishing this by seeding and supporting independent teams with proven track records, and providing them with clean interfaces to the DIMO platform.
Examples of application categories which make use of “read-only” connections to DIMO vehicles are provided below.
Battery Intelligence
Realtime ground-truth data on battery performance
Hundreds of billions of dollars are being spent by automakers, battery OEMs, VCs, and others to improve and develop EV batteries. The entire industry is betting on batteries yet real-world performance data is nearly impossible to come by.
Vehicle Commerce & Finance
Vehicle value can and should be data-driven
Car purchases and financing depend on the health and use history of a vehicle. DIMO provides neutral, comprehensive, and authenticated vehicle usage data and identity, which opens up new possibilities.
Smart Insurance
Let’s fix data-driven car insurance
Insurance companies have built driver monitoring black boxes that obscure calculations and can even incentivize unsafe driving. With DIMO you can build open, transparent insurance products that provide drivers their own copy of vehicle data to properly protect themselves in security and liability incidents. As AVs enter the world, insurance that uses data from ADAS systems will be necessary.
Energy Utility Integrations
Let’s get the electric grid ready for EVs
Utilities can reward users by incentivizing charging behaviors based on local market conditions. DIMO hardware (and certain API connections) can provide this solution, by turning vehicles (and chargers) into DERs.
Maintenance & Upgrades
Use the data from your car to make it last longer & perform better
We're putting the data required for maintenance and customization back in the hands of users. Error codes from your engine, battery health reports, and recalls/warranty information for your vehicle can inform smarter product and service purchasing decisions.
Additional grants and support to teams will be provided as vehicle supply increases, additional functionality is unlocked, and the $DIMO token is in the hands of users who can signal their desire for specific functionality.
If you are a developer who is interested in building an app on DIMO you can apply for a license and/or grant here.
