Maximize Data Monetization Opportunities

Connected cars are generating tons of data which can be used to understand how the vehicle is being used. But how can data be used to generate real revenue for the entire ecosystem?

  • Get to grips with how to monetize connected car data (i.e. location, audio, driving behaviour) by breaking through industry silos (i.e. media, insurance, smart cities)
  • Data + Scale = Value. Overcome limitations to gaining access to necessary amounts of data to monetize for e.g. advertisers & explore existing examples e.g. marketplace, UBI
  • Identify internal use-cases for data that reduce costs, incl. R&D, product development, quality management and supply chain optimization
