Car IQ offers the first payment solution developed for vehicles and fleets that enables vehicles to transact directly, securely and autonomously with all payment networks, banks and service providers. Car IQ’s underlying technology is based on a patented machine identity verification process that allows vehicles and machines to connect directly to payment networks, physical infrastructures, and mobility platforms. Our payment platform enables vehicles to automatically initiate and complete payments for services such as tolls, fuel, parking and more.  

We designed the Car IQ platform to serve the broad needs of vehicles including fleet managers, automotive OEMs, car sharing services, ride sharing platforms, and commercial fleets.
