The first capability to simplify automotive data sharing for OEMs and
mobility service providers, offering more control of driver opt-in for
services that use personal automotive data

HERZLIYA, Israel & REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Otonomo,
the first neutral automotive data services platform, today announced the
Consent Management Hub, a new capability within the Otonomo Platform.
The Consent Management Hub provides an efficient way for connected car
drivers to take control over the sharing of their personal automotive
data. It simplifies the driver opt-in process for automotive
manufacturers (OEMs) on the Otonomo Platform and validates consent with
each personal data request from third-party mobility service providers.

“Data security and privacy are among the most critical drivers or
inhibitors in the next generation of mobility services,” said Sarwant
Singh, senior partner at Frost & Sullivan. “Automotive OEMs and mobility
service providers know how important it is to be responsible data
stewards and earn consumers’ trust. We are impressed with Otonomo’s
approach to consent management and applaud their effort.”

The Otonomo Consent Management Hub puts drivers first, building privacy
by design into all interactions with third-party service providers, and
minimizing the need for them to collect personal data:

  • Drivers get full transparency about the data that will be shared with
    a particular mobility service as they grant consent through a mobile
    app or website operated by their OEM.
  • Drivers can quickly grant consent for specific services to access
    their automotive data. They can revoke this consent at any time
    through the app or website.
  • Service providers connect to the Otonomo Platform to get access to
    automotive data. Each time the service requests access to personal
    data, the Otonomo Platform automatically validates the existence of
    consent for the requested data.

The Otonomo Consent Management Hub uses a networked architecture that
connects multifaceted information flows between drivers, OEMs, and
service providers. For example, in-vehicle delivery from retailers may
require drivers to provide consent to both the retailer and a
third-party courier service. By serving as a central point for these
information flows, the Otonomo Consent Management Hub simplifies
integration and delivers high scalability for automotive OEMs as well as
all of the service providers in the network. As new partners join the
network, all parties benefit from their services with no additional
integration effort.

“A single point of integration for diverse mobility services is the key
to scale,” said Amir Freund, Chief Product Officer at Otonomo. “Consent
management information flows for mobility services can get quite
complicated. We believe that both OEMs and service providers will save a
huge amount of development effort by taking advantage of a single
integration to the Otonomo platform. We’re excited at the opportunity to
break down the barriers to innovation and open up new opportunities to
drivers and all organizations in the ecosystem.”

The Otonomo Consent Management Hub is available now to partners on the
Otonomo Automotive Data Services Platform. To learn more about Otonomo,
