Hooking up a Tesla to a website

The American automaker Tesla produces luxury electric vehicles, and their flagship Model S sets the standard for the new breed of electric vehicles. We found the Model S to be more a high-tech gadget than a car, so we couldn’t resist but to play with its capabilities.

Internet of Things on wheels

Tesla is connected to the web by default. This means maps, Spotify and other cool features usually accessible on a smartphone are native to the car’s interface. But the cooler thing is that a bunch of the car’s information can be accessed via an API.

Tracking in real time

For the purpose of this project, we wanted to observe real-time driving progress. We filtered out the data available from the car, and after crunching the numbers displayed some of the most interesting stats on a dashboard.

The dashboard we’ve created can communicate all sorts of interesting tidbits about the car. Info like the temperature inside the car, current speed, if the doors are locked or not, and so on. Combined with historical data, interesting patterns can be extracted in order to display vehicle performance, driving habits and more.

Conquering Europe

It’s possible to drive through Europe without feeling guilty about the environmental footprint, and two Tesla-related projects using our technology that we’re most proud of are with a cause. Each team had a specific route but both wanted to highlight the availability of the charging infrastructure and the car’s endurance.

Tesla green

Entrepreneur and investor Saša Cvetojević decided to embark on a journey from the very edge of the European continent all the way to Istanbul. The goal of the trip was to show that electric cars can be used in countries without an ideal electric charging station infrastructure.

“4 girls. 4 days. 0 emissions” is the first ever girls-only world record in an electric car. This project was focused on the environmental footprint, so we drew a direct comparison in CO2 consumption between a Tesla and a conventional luxury sedan.
