September 16, 2020
We’re pleased to announce that as of today Ford car data will be available to developers and independent service providers via High Mobility’s Auto API.

The Auto API

The Auto API is High Mobility’s standardised protocol that works cross-manufacturer. Ford vehicle data will be available for verified third party services for use cases such as pay-as-you-drive insurance, enhanced insurance, driver’s logbook and vehicle health/maintenance. This personalised vehicle data will include GPS coordinates, odometer, vehicle status data and other vehicle health indicators to enable the increased accuracy and personalisation of car services.
