Mobility intelligence provider Otonomo Technologies Ltd, announced Audi AG as a vehicle data platform partner. With the partnership, Audi can create offerings such as pay-as-you-drive and insurance services, general vehicle status, and first notification of loss to its customers and business partners, announced in the statement.
“Otonomo’s mobility intelligence platform unlocks the value of connected vehicle data while maintaining GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliance,” said Thomas Geiger, project manager, Extended Vehicle Audi AG, in the statement. “We see the enabling of services for multi-brand solutions through Otonomo’s customers, from start-ups to major corporates in their industries, as a key differentiator. We believe this will fast track the adoption of vehicle data-driven applications.”
The mobility intelligence platform cleanses, harmonizes, and secures vehicle data and makes it accessible through Otonomo's API platform. Under the terms of the partnership, Audi will provide Otonomo with data points from Audi connected cars, ranging from odometer readings to crash information, including impact location and severity.
At launch, Audi and Otonomo will start with data points spanning use cases such as:
- Pay-as-you-drive (PAYD): This data can be used for usage-based insurance and includes data elements such as mileage readings and parking time.
- First Notification of Loss (FNOL): This use case is of interest to insurance companies and contains information about accident events, the severity of the accident, and the location of the impact.
- Vehicle Status: This includes, among other things, the status of doors or a sliding roof.
“Otonomo's vehicle data platform will bring value to Audi buyers," added Ben Volkow, CEO and co-founder of Otonomo. "It will make it easy for Audi to simplify access to Audi connected car data and accelerates the time-to-value of data-driven business models. Audi is a market leader, and this partnership is an important opportunity that will allow us to collaborate on innovative technologies and emerging services. Additionally, we are excited to share with Audi and our extended ecosystem the new mobility intelligence solutions Otonomo provides.”
