/developers – the public API platform of Mercedes-Benz.

By launching /developers, Mercedes-Benz opens up its APIs and makes its own services available to developers, start-ups and established companies in order to develop new business models and innovative apps in the field of mobility and beyond. The platform, which will be launched at the Web Summit conference, grants users access to a wide range of materials, such as vehicle data and images, for integration into their own creative projects. Developers who are itching to get started or discuss the new system with the API experts can do so on site in the Coders’ Lounge.

The company developed the real-life game “Boot the Boot” especially for this event. Visitors get to familiarise themselves with the new technology in a casual environment while helping Mercedes-Benz save the planet from the evil E.N.C.R.I.P.T.O. agents.
