TomTom helps reduce range anxiety with launch of new APIs

Dutch mapping and navigation tech company TomTom is launching two new APIs for developers to help build applications that make electric mobility easier and less stressful from a charging and range point of view.

The new Long Distance EV Routing API allows users to plan routes beyond one charge. The routing algorithm is designed to optimize travel time and calculates the route including charging stops. The second new API, EV Charging Stations Availability API, gives information about the availability of the charging station, making sure the driver knows before arrival whether he can plug in or not.
