Vehicle data monetization – widening the opportunity

The biggest opportunities are outside of the vehicle. Until now, discussions surrounding how to monetize data generated by vehicles have focused on the closed and narrow ecosystems consisting of the manufacturers, owners and dealerships. Going forward, several new applications are being built by third parties using the anonymized and aggregated data from thousands or millions of vehicles. In this session, we will talk about how data from cars is becoming vital to large logistics companies, training of autonomous delivery vans and drones, city-scale digital twins and more, and how vehicle makers and owners can derive revenue from it.
