A Neutral Data Solution That Benefits Both Industry and Public Interests

The Neutral Vehicle Platform provides an end-to-end framework for transferring rich vehicle data from the ground to the cloud and back. The development of advanced applications and services by third parties becomes possible through a platform constructed with security, scale and interoperability at its core.

The Neutral Vehicle Working Group, sponsored by Geotab, an expert in large scale, open and secure telematics, is currently collaborating with key industry stakeholders to put forward and further refine a prototype for Neutral Vehicle architecture and functionality that is carefully considered, rigorously planned, and meets the stringent requirements and expectations of the real world. The working group is also consulting with stakeholders on a governance model that aims to keep the Neutral Vehicle truly neutral.
