TomTom has launched two new APIs for developers to help build applications for electric mobility. The TomTom Long Distance EV Routing API and the TomTom EV Charging Stations Availability API are aimed to enable a reliable and stress-free driving experience.
The new Long Distance EV Routing API allows users to route from A to B beyond one charge. The routing algorithm, specifically designed to optimize travel time, calculates the route including stops to charge, displaying an estimated arrival time that also considers the charging time.
The second new API, EV Charging Stations Availability API, provides information about the availability of the charging stations per plug type, making sure the driver knows before arrival whether a charging point is available for use or not.
The APIs expand the range of tools offered by the company to the developers who build an application for electric vehicle drivers. Developers can start building for electric mobility with TomTom SDKs and APIs on TomTom’s self-service developer portal.
TomTom, the location technology specialist, is shaping mobility with accurate maps, navigation software, real-time traffic information and services. The company, headquartered in Amsterdam with offices in 30 countries, is known for creating innovative technologies combining their extensive experience with leading business and technology partners.
