The history of

Carmunication Logo


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.

Amidst the discovery phase and then followed by a slow-down because of Covid-19, the market had changed. From Carmunication’s point of view, another competing data platform and the necessary investment would not have resulted in any significant change for the IAM.


Connected cars, autonomous cars, electric vehicles, the digitalisation of the entire automotive industry, data management are becoming the gold standard and will disruptively restructure the market. Understanding and managing vehicle data is the main concern of the current decade.
With its new mission statement “The in-vehicle data lighthouse”, launched in June 2022 at the General Assembly in Stuttgart, Carmunication decided to step-up to become the independent knowledge specialist of the in-vehicle data management, to help its members develop their businesses and draw new growth from in-vehicle data.
