Capgemini and Israeli car data platform Otonomo are collaborating to help clients in Germany build new products and services based on connected car data. The aim is to support automotive OEMS and other providers bring privacy-compliant, end-to-end solutions based on car data to market.

Services range from ideation and business models through to platform integrations and as-a-service models.

The Otonomo Platform aggregates more than two billion data points per day from 20 million connected vehicles globally.  It enables use cases such as personalised on-road experiences for drivers, data-driven decisions for vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators, and smart data-based products and services for the consumer.

The aim is to allow clients to increase data utilisation through Capgemini’s digital transformation products and services, along with Otonomo’s automotive data services platform. According to Capgemini, the collaboration complements the company’s Intelligent Industry vision and enables the transformation of automotive companies towards mobility providers.

The Otonomo Platform ingests automotive OEM data, reshapes, aggregates and protects it so companies can use the data to develop a host of apps and services for fleets, smart cities, and individual consumers. For personal use cases requiring individual consumer consent for GDPR compliance, Otonomo offers an end-to-end consent management process including usage-based insurance (UBI), predictive maintenance, and concierge services such as on-demand fuelling, electric vehicle (EV) services, in-vehicle package delivery, and on-demand car wash.

“At Otonomo, we recognise that vehicle data offers unlimited potential,” said Ben Volkow, CEO and founder, Otonomo. “We aspire to create a mobility ecosystem that uses data to make every driving and transportation experience more rewarding and more environmentally friendly. The valuable expertise that Capgemini Invent offers to our ecosystem will help our vision come to life faster.”

“Rising customer expectations of in-car and mobility experiences will impact the automotive industry and beyond. Otonomo and Capgemini can together help clients to create services that pave the way for new collaborative business opportunities. For Capgemini, the partnership with Otonomo is a perfect fit extending our Smart Mobility offering,” says Henrik Ljungström, Head of Automotive Sector in Germany, Capgemini.
