Otonomo, an Israeli-based autonomous data services platform, recently announced that they will be teaming up with Microsoft to work on developing the Microsoft Connect Vehicle Platform. They'll work on improving the services offered through the platform, speed up services, and improve their overall functionality for auto data.
As the OEMs adopt the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform, they can plug their connected car data into Otonomo’s existing ecosystem in order to roll out new connected car services, the company says.
“Global automakers are looking for practical, scalable ways to innovate in the car,” said Asaf Weisbrot, chief commercial officer at Otonomo. “Our collaboration with Microsoft will allow them to offer new, high-demand services to drivers faster than ever before. Microsoft’s cloud can handle the heavy lifting of ingesting huge volumes of sensor and usage data from connected vehicles.”
“Car makers will benefit from Otonomo’s integration to the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform on Azure to enable easier data sharing and value creation options,” said Tara Prakriya, general manager of Azure IoT Mobility and Connected Vehicle at Microsoft.
Founded by CEO Ben Volkow and Avner Cohen in 2015, Otonomo has created a marketplace that enables car manufacturers, service providers, and app developers to easily and securely exchange car data. The company operates in the US, Europe, and Japan and has raised a total of $53 million in funding to date, according to Crunchbase. Investors have included Aptiv (Delphi Automotive), Dell Technologies Capital, Hearst Ventures, Stageone Ventures, and Maniv Mobility.
