5GMETA – monetizing car and mobility data for new entrants, technologies and actors
Today’s semi-autonomous vehicles are rolling off assembly lines equipped with hardware, software and machine learning systems, as well as cameras and ultrasonic sensors. In addition to ensuring a safer ride, these cars generate a lot of data. The EU-funded 5GMETA project is developing an open platform to leverage car-captured data to stimulate and facilitate innovative products and services. It will empower the automotive ecosystem, from industry players to new entrants such as small and medium-sized enterprises and high-tech startups. Granting access to data from relevant geographical regions, the project will create new opportunities and business models from valuable services, where data liability and billing will rely on an accountability dashboard of data-flow subscription and volume consumption.
