Creating a service

Otonomo has two type of services: Aggregated and Personal.

Aggregate services - These are services that provide aggregated historical data on vehicles.
You should be using this type of service if your application/service requires aggregated historical data.

We provide 3 different types of aggregated data-sets, each has different APIs and different attributes :

  1. Points - Each point in this data-set provides information of a single vehicle status at a specific point in time
  2. Trips - Each point in this data-set provides summerized information on a single vehicle trip.
  3. Road Sign - Each point in this data-set provides information on a single recorded road sign at a specific point in time.

To read more on the different road signs and their available attribute, read this: Data Sets

Personal services - These are services that provide real time data on different vehicle attributes.
You should be using this service type If your service requires information on the current status on a specific list of attributes.

Rather you require information on a single vehicle at a time or multiple vehicles, we support both scenarios.
You can find additional information on the process here: Obtaining Driver Consent

Data consumption

Once you have created your service, you will be able to start consuming data.

The easiest method of consumption is using the UI.
Every service has a dedicated report generation section, which enables you to generate a report based on location or by drawing a polygon on a map.

To learn more, read Creating reports.

In addition to the UI, we provide 2 additional methods of data consumption: API and Streaming
To learn more about the differences, read Consumption Methods .
