The Bestmile Developer Hub
Welcome to the Bestmile developer hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Bestmile as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!
Bestmile offers a complete solution to monitor and control fleets of human-driven and autonomous vehicles. It supports fixed-route and geofenced on-demand services. The central piece is the Core Engine. Vehicles connect to the Core Engine using Hermes, our open-source communication protocol, in order to exchange information and commands. Traveler companion apps can request rides using our HTTP REST Travel API (request access), which will be processed by the Core Engine who will dispatch vehicles to the pick-up and drop-off locations.
Still following? Let's make it simpler:
"I'm working on a traveler companion app and I want to use Bestmile to book on-demand rides and provide service information."
Then jump immediately to the Travel API guide! You will learn how to make a booking and get real-time fleet information. Don't bother with the Hermes protocol. It is useless for your case.
