The Connected Reality

Millions of connected vehicles are travelling the globe today. In the commercial sector, these vehicles are found globally in mixed fleets across virtually every industry. These businesses and operators all lean on direct, real-time, wireless access to operational vehicle data in order to advance safety, drive productivity and operate responsibly.

Direct data access will be increasingly vital as electric vehicles become a larger part of the transportation universe. Access to and interaction with data will become the foundation of competition, innovation and value creation. Such a platform also helps enable the measurement and distribution of the electric vehicle load. A standardized, open, global data platform that is accessible to all stakeholders will become a vital underpinning of global transportation and mobility.

Open, Competitive, Secure

The security of cyber physical systems and networks is an essential component of data openness and platform neutrality; both imperatives reinforce each other. An open platform design facilitates the development of security standards, engagement of security experts, and leverages feedback from the broader security research community.

The Neutral Vehicle Platform is planned around security by design, well grounded recommendations, guidelines and standards with input from government agencies, independent experts and the security community. The key to security is design, process development, and collaboration, and the Neutral Vehicle enables all three.

The 5 Pillars of the Neutral Vehicle

Neutrality

Designed for access to data through competing data access providers and product/service providers. Its core values are competition, innovation and value in and for the transportation ecosystem based on user context, choice and preference.

Security

Actively engaged in the development, documentation and scrutiny of security recommendations and standards related to telematics and access to vehicle data. The Neutral Vehicle collaborates and consults with leading experts in the field as well as the broader security community.

Openness

Designed for openness and robustness to serve a diverse and constantly evolving ecosystem. The open SDK and rich set of API allows different vehicle data providers to quickly integrate their solution in the platform. Application and service providers can use standards such as REST and JSON for simple access to the vehicle data. Documentation and SDK are publicly available.

Scale and Sophistication

Designed to facilitate data enabled services for the full range of users from the small operator to the most sophisticated global corporation. It enables collection and real time processing of the richest and most high quality data sets available with access to advanced data analytics covering a broad range of research, "public good" and commercial purposes.

Privacy

Operates on the principles of transparency, consent and security as expressed in the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Canadian Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) specialized privacy related statutes in the United States.
