New Delhi: To improve driver safety and convenience, the technology firm Continental together with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) launched a new platform for sharing of vehicle data.
Based on blockchain technology, the platform provides data sovereignty, security, transparency, and efficiency to overcome the barriers of sharing vehicle data, Continental said in a release.
As part of a strategic partnership between HPE and Continental, the new platform was jointly designed by HPE Pointnext and Continental’s Interior division and is expected to be available in 2019.
The company further said that the new platform will help car manufacturers monetize their data and differentiate their brands.
“Sharing vehicle data across vendors can solve some of the toughest traffic problems and improve driver experience by leveraging the power of swarm intelligence,” said Phil Davis, President Hybrid IT, Chief Sales Officer, HPE. “Together with Continental, we provide the key to unlock the value of this data treasure, not by taking control of the data ourselves, but by giving control to the drivers and car manufacturers.”
Additionally, the data-monetization platform will enable car manufacturers and other partners to trade data with each other – either to improve digital services for their customers or to monetize vehicle data. The platform’s interface capability will enable multiple ecosystems – both centralized or decentralized – to interconnect and leverage new ways of data monetization.
Furthermore, the platform is compliant with the VDA NEVADA Share & Secure concept which was developed by the German automotive industry to govern the secure transmission and transfer of vehicle generated data to third parties.
