What is CARMUNICATION?

CARMUNICATION delivers the data: CARMUNICATION collects relevant vehicle data and makes them available to members on the CARMUNICATION platform. These data show e.g.: Are there any problems with the vehicle? What is the handling performance like? Is the next service due?

Before the data are added to the CARMUNICATION platform, a module called the ‘privacy zone’ checks which data usage the car owner has agreed to.

CARMUNICATION members get access to data – and make the deal.

The history of CARMUNICATION

Wherever people get together, that is where ideas can thrive as well: In the case of CARMUNICATION, it was the Automechanika trade fair in September 2015 that provided the opportunity for fresh thinking. During a discussion between entrepreneurs and managers about the future of Auto Live Data, the idea of ​​an open telematics platform specifically for the automotive industry was conceived. Over the summer of 2016, the general goals became more concrete and finally led to the foundation of the association CARMUNICATION in autumn of that year. Just one summer later, the association counted more than a dozen well-connected members from the automotive and spare parts trade.
