Porsche and Caruso announce connected car collab

Vehicle data platform Caruso has reached an agreement with Porsche Smart Mobility to provide secure access to personal data from the car maker’s vehicles to third parties, including insurers, to help them develop customised digital solutions.

The data marketplace enables Caruso’s customers to access standardised vehicle data with broad coverage of the European vehicle market.

The provider says the integrated consent management solution ensures that the data is only exported with the consent of the vehicle owner in compliance with GDPR.

“We want to continuously improve the driving experience for our customers. Our vehicle data contribute to the development of intelligent solutions that add great value to the safety and comfort of Porsche drivers. For Porsche, the customer is at the center of this: They should thereby receive an expanded digital ecosystem for their vehicles as well as always have the sovereignty over who they want to share which vehicle data with. We are delighted to be working with Caruso on this initiative and, with that, being able to make a decisive contribution to this development," says Manfred Wiedemann, Project Manager of Porsche Connect Partner Services at Porsche AG.

More than 50% of networked vehicles in Europe can already be reached by Caruso’s software.
