CARMUNICATION ENABLES FAIR ACCESS TO LIVE VEHICLE DATA

Live vehicle data is the core requirement for many businesses today and will continue to grow in importance in the future. Access to these data is of vital importance and can make the difference between success and failure for businesses. It has been established that access-restrictions can significantly impede business opportunities and must be avoided at all costs.

Today, car manufacturers act as gatekeepers by restricting or even preventing third-party access to the data that is generated by the vehicle. In fact, for the Independent Aftermarket, live vehicle data is only available today to its stakeholders on a very limited scale. With this problem in mind, Carmunication was founded as a non-profit association in 2016 to achieve our goal of fair access to live vehicle data for all players in the Automotive Aftermarket.

We believe in privacy by design, allowing the owner and users of the vehicle to decide who gets access to the data that is generated. A robust consent management is thus at the core of our efforts to enable fair access to live vehicle data.

We set our goal to achieve free access to live vehicle data for all players in the Automotive Aftermarket. Our membership structure is uniquely diverse and ranges from small start-ups, through advocacy groups all the way to large multinational corporations.

Carmunication: 
Your access to the free market

The non-profit association Carmunication commits itself to fair competition. Our aim: free access to vehicle data for businesses in Europe. Because free access means equal opportunities.

What are Auto Live Data for?

A modern car is a computer on wheels that continuously generates live data: data on handling performance, fuel consumption, acceleration, mileage, wear and tear and many more. All of these rely on free access to Auto Live Data: service and repair, ordering spare parts and vehicle fleet management.

But beware: With eCall, some car manufacturers try to secure the monopoly on Auto Live Data.
