Twilio is a cloud based infrastructure API which allows developers to create voice and text messaging applications which leverage the phone network, from their application. We will take a fast-paced look at developing voice based services using Twilio and PHP. Rapidly exploring the service and the API we will use it to build a simple inbound phone number to our web application. This can be used to allow customers to phone up and query their account automatically, check the status of outstanding orders, or receive a call as their account or order progresses.
At Smith Electric Vehicles we used this to rapidly put together a proof-of-concept to allow customers to phone up and geo-locate their trucks, query metrics of the vehicle such as the state of charge, and receive an automated call when the truck left its geo-fenced area.
