TomTom has launched two application programming interfaces (API) to help developers build applications for electric vehicle (EV) drivers.
TomTom says the Long Distance EV Routing API comes with an algorithm which calculates the route - including stops to charge - and displays an estimated time of arrival. The EV Charging Stations Availability API provides information on stations according to plug type, the company adds.
Anders Truelsen, managing director, TomTom Enterprise, says the company offers developers a toolkit to create “useful location-based services for EV drivers that will help lift the practical and psychological barriers to wide-scale EV adoption.”
Developers can start building for electric mobility with TomTom software development kits and APIs on TomTom’s self-service developer portal.
