Position Paper
Manifesto for fair digitalisation opportunities

An alliance of stakeholders representing the automotive aftercare market, which includes insurers, has called on EU policymakers to put forward legislation by 2020 to ensure a genuine level-playing field for remote access to in-vehicle data. 

In a new manifesto, the alliance said that in order to be able to continue to provide competitive and innovative services and solutions to their customers, independent operators would need (with the consent of the driver):

  • Independent and direct real-time access to in-vehicle generated data that is not monitored by vehicle manufacturers.
  • Bi-directional communication with the vehicle and its functions, independent from the vehicle manufacturer.
  • Safe, secure and independent remote interaction with the driver, using in-vehicle interfaces (eg, via the dashboard or voice commands).
  • Independent software running directly in the connected vehicle to process data as closely as possible to its source.
