AutoPi takes the form of a Raspberry Pi-powered device and a cloud system that makes it possible for any car to be transformed into a smart vehicle.

The dongle itself takes the form of a handheld device that keeps a driver connected to their car. As it is built on Raspberry Pi and an open Linux operating system, AutoPi allows users to build their own powerful software features, as well as setup remote start, voice recognition and theft detection features.

The physical AutoPi device works alongside the AutoPi Cloud, which is an IoT maker platform that offers a complete set of management tools for one's vehicle. Some of the features available include a customizable dashboard, a display of previous trips, as well as a place to input custom lines of code.
