Invers launches OEM integrations to let mobility providers receive data easily from vehicles of multiple brands with factory-fitted telematics. The new hardware free solution connects vehicles to the Invers ecosystems, providing normalised data to developers through a unified interface known as: Invers OneAPI.
OEM Integrations works with the API of a wide variety of manufacturers, as well as mopeds, kick scooter and many e-bike brands. it allows mobility service providers to simplify the management of software defined fleets and allow resources to be placed elsewhere, away from API development.
Invers, inventor of automated vehicle sharing, enables mobility service providers to launch, operate and scale their offerings with integrated hardware software solutions, specifically designed for developers and shared mobility services. Invers is the world’s first shared mobility technology company that is developing and undertaking vital steps, at a scale, to ensure that it can offer its customers the most cost-effective and easily implementable tech solutions.
Fleet managers for mobility service providers such as: car sharing operators, rental companies/subscription providers, are continually looking for tools to automate fleet operations and manage software tools. This comes with an aim to improve efficiency and profitability. OEM integrations and INVERS OneAPI relieve providers of the challenges that many face. To build such software designed fleets, operators require reliable access to data from a variety of vehicles and brands from their fleet.
Most OEM’s start to provide such data through factory-fitted telematics, accessible via their specific OEM and API’s. The challenge for mobility providers is to then integrate and uphold a multitude of different OEM APIs for various vehicle types and brands in their fleet. However, OEM integrations and INVERS OneAPI integrate the OEM APIs, harmonising and normalising the data streams so that developers can work with data without worrying about different formats. The solution currently connects to the APIs of Mercedes Benz, BMW, Mini, Chrysler, Peugeot, Citroen, DS, Vauxhall, Opel, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Jeep and Ford as well as moped, kick-scooter and e-bike brands such as Segway, NIU and Okai.
It includes data points such as odometer, location information and fuel or battery level from these different sources and provides them through just one single interface: INVERS OneAPI. The operators’ developers can then use the data more easily in software for vehicle sharing or other fleet management applications.
Alexander Kirn, CEO of Invers has said “Following our ambition to make any vehicle shareable, we believe software-defined fleets and fleet automation enable mobility service providers to operate shared fleets more profitably, more efficiently and with the best user experience.”
“As developer resources are rare and time to market is key, our solution allow operators to integrate any vehicle into their fleet quickly and flexibly: with retrofitted, sharing-dedicated hardware like CloudBoxx, and now also factory fitted solutions via OEM Integrations. Adding a software-based, API-centric approach to our proven hardware and software sharing capabilities is just a logical step in our journey towards a comprehensive vehicle-as-a-service platform and a data standard for software-defined fleets.”
