Overview - Fleet Data

What is Personal Fleet Data?

Fleet ownership is when several vehicles are owned by a single entity.

Fleet personal data provides specific vehicle data. Therefore, it requires the consent of the vehicle owner/driver.

The Otonomo Vehicle Data Platform enables fleet operators and service providers with access to application-ready fleet vehicle data, which is normalized, enriched and data-privacy compliant.

How to consume data?

We support 2 types of data consumption:

  • Streaming - using Push API
  • Pull APIs


Through our streaming interface, Otonomo creates a direct data pipeline from Otonomo to your servers.
This provides you with the ability to get the most updated data once it’s received from the OEM.

Pull APIs

There are 2 methods to receive the vehicle data:

  • Get Vehicle Status – this call provides the latest known status of a specific vehicle. The API is Synchronous API. Click here for more information.
  • Get multiple Vehicles' Statuses - this call provides the latest status for multiple vehicles in an Asynchronous mode. The data will be aggregated in a report. Click here for more information. To check your repot status click here.

Please note:

  • For near real-time consumption – it’s recommended to use the first method: Get Vehicle Status
  • For periodic consumption – it’s recommended to use the second method: Get multiple Vehicles' Statuses

Please note: The actual data depends on vehicle make, model, year and geography.

How often is the data updated?

The vehicles send data while they are driving.

If you use our Streaming interface, you will always get the data once Otonomo receives it.
If you use our API interface, you will get the vehicle’s latest status as was sent to Otonomo.
