At Smartcar, we empower developers to build the future of mobility. Learn about our mission, our team, and more.
Sahas and Sanketh Katta were trying to build an app for their car, when they realized that this was anything but easy. Although vehicles were becoming internet-connected computers on wheels, there was no simple way of creating web and mobile apps for cars. No vehicle brand offered friendly developer portals, API docs, or SDKs. The next wave of mobility was driven by software, but developers were held back and faced too many barriers to entry.
That’s why Sahas and Sanketh founded Smartcar. Our team has created the first and only standard API for cars, letting app developers locate and unlock vehicles with just a few lines of code. That said, our mission is simple. We’re doing the difficult stuff so that you can focus on what’s important: building the future of mobility.
