The challenge of commercializing data captured during the lifespan of a vehicle’s operation can be met with a comprehensive, multi-layered approach, but this takes a high degree of expertise and experience. In the interests of both the OEM and consumer, this approach must include provisions to protect user privacy, efficient data management processes, built-in data security mechanisms, and forward-looking engineering for the connected car.
