The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) and Connected Places Catapult have recently published a report on Unlocking the benefits of in-vehicle data.
This was a result of a workshop, attended by the BVRLA, that was hosted by CCAV & Catapult last year to look at the benefits and challenges with sharing in-vehicle data.
Several key issues for members were raised during the workshop and have been reflected within the report, including barriers such as vehicle data access, lack of trust and difficulty in accessing complete data sets.
Benefits identified include driver behaviour monitoring, predictive maintenance and supporting Mobility as a Service (MaaS) journey platforms.
The authors of the report have built on the outcomes of the workshop and have recommended the establishment of a consortium which can guide the activities and projects that need to be undertaken to overcome the barriers identified.
The BVRLA will be meeting with CCAV and Catapult to discuss the findings of the report and to discuss how we can get involved with the consortium.
If members have anything they would like to feed in, please contact BVRLA Senior Policy Advisor, Catherine Bowen at [email protected].
