Apps & User Interfaces

The PACE Cloud is Maximally Flexible – in Many Respects

We connect to your customers according to your wishes via apps & user interfaces on the smartphone, in the web browser or in the vehicle display (HMI), which are fed from the PACE Cloud.

As a partner, you can directly access our API interfaces. We can alternatively provide you with browser applications tailored to your needs.

In addition, any sensors can be integrated into the PACE Cloud as data suppliers.

The PACE Ecosystem consists of many microservices and thus forms a modular composition of various applications and functions. You can customize your own system and thus implement exactly the solution that suits you best.

Icon apps and interfaces

Apps & User Interfaces for Your Customers

Smartphone apps (iOS and Android), browser applications and vehicle displays (HMI) are the home of your end users.

Smartphone apps based on PACEKit technology bring your end users many features before, during, and after a trip. This turns their cars into smart cars and thus makes driving safer, cheaper, and more comfortable. An example is our own PACE Car app, which is also based on the PACEKit.

The constant growth of the range of features ensures that apps based on PACE technology always offer added value and remain exciting. All apps are developed natively for iOS and Android. This guarantees maximal usability and first-class user experience through high technical flexibility on the smartphone.

Apps ui mockup

If your end users surf at home with an internet browser, they have access to their account through browser applications such as the PACE Cockpit in order to conveniently view and manage their data. Of course, we can also integrate such solutions into the vehicle display (HMI) for your end users.

All smartphone apps and browser applications are constantly synchronized and are therefore always up-to-date. Like this, your users always have their car with them on their phone and also quickly within reach when using their computer or laptop.

Icon partner connection

Your Connection to PACE

Realize disruptive business models by connecting to PACE and offer innovative services to your own customers or the PACE Community.

Section service

You can connect to PACE via our APIs or our browser dashboards. Using an API connection, you can integrate PACE functionalities and data directly into your own existing software systems. And as nowadays, integration is often everything, the PACE Cloud can be connected via REST APIs, Trigger APIs and Streaming APIs.

Alternatively, you can use the browser applications developed by PACE to integrate our solutions quickly and easily into your processes and workflows – the choice is yours.

Icon datasources and sensors

Data Sources & Sensors

To provide cars with connectivity, data streams from multiple data sources and sensors can be uploaded into the PACE Cloud

Section datasources

This data input can be flexibly configured – depending on what you need for your application today or in the future.

OBD retrofit adapters, vehicle control units, partner backends, pure app applications, and many other transmitters connected to mobile assets can be included as data sources and sensors into the PACE Cloud.

    PACE Link Pro
    (Bluetooth LE + SIM)

  • Source pace hub

    PACE Hub
    (Connectivity Hub)

The PACE Link One is a retrofit OBD2 adapter that connects to the smartphone via Bluetooth LE (4.1). This allows high data volumes to be transferred and real-time data from the vehicle to smartphone apps to be displayed – all of it with only the costs of a pure app solution. Combining extremely high compatibility (over 100,000 vehicle models) with attractive design, the PACE Link One is one of the smallest and safest adapters worldwide.

In addition to the Bluetooth LE (4.1) connection, the PACE Link Pro also establishes a mobile data connection via the built-in SIM card. This makes it ideal for usages with frequent driver changes (car sharing, car pools, etc.).

The PACE Hub has numerous interfaces which allow a direct connection to the Can-Bus among others. It is connected directly to the vehicle's power supply with the lowest possible energy consumption. The PACE Hub has a number of digital and analogue interfaces. On request, it can be equipped with connectivity (e.g. GSM, LTE, etc.) and can also act as a Bluetooth master. This allows all BTLE (Bluetooth Low Energy 4.1) capable components in the vehicle to be connected, read out and controlled.
