Yes, there is. Today you can get an insight on how our API works and in two different ways: First, you can test our API with softcars. These are dummy vehicles that simulate the data transmission from real vehicles. Second, you can test our API with real vehicles from one of your specific fleets for a determined trial period.
The availability of the data depends on the compatibility of the vehicle and should be checked individually. Our API can be used for various Mercedes-Benz Cars and Vans. You can find a detailed list in the 'Details' section of the Mercedes-Benz Developer Portal.
Our API actually consists of two APIs. For using the Management API, the customer needs to implement a REST client, which is able to add vehicles to the platform, activate and deactivate services for the vehicles, querying the service activation states and deleting the vehicles from the platform.
For being able to consume vehicle data via the Push API, the customer needs to implement a kafka client respectively a messaging consumer.
After sending the activation request via the API, you need to wait for the next ignition state change. This means, once the vehicle is fully ‘online’, the services get activated.
