Is Smartcar right for you?
If you’re looking to purchase data for planning, market analysis, or modeling then Wejo could be a good fit for you. Wejo may help you understand traffic and congestion, make more informed decisions about roadside ads, evaluate new retail locations, or gain insights into construction work zones.
But if you want to integrate apps or services with connected vehicles, then Smartcar is the developer platform for you. With Smartcar, you can easily retrieve data from cars and even trigger actions through our simple and secure API. Mobility businesses of all kinds use our APIs to track vehicle location, verify mileage, share digital car keys, manage EV charging, and much more.
