Can privacy concerns for insurance of connected cars be compensated?

Can privacy concerns for insurance of connected cars be compensated? Internet-of-things technologies enable service providers such as insurance companies to collect vast amounts of privacy-sensitive data on car drivers. This paper studies whether and how privacy concerns of car owners can be compensated by offering monetary benefits. We study the case of usage based car insurance services for which the insurance fee is adapted to measured mileage and driving behaviour.

Connected car, automotive value chain unbound

Connected car, automotive value chain unbound The term “connected car”* is one of the most intensely debated buzzwords these days. There is no doubt that it will shape the future of the automotive industry, but how? Are consumers going to pay for it (and what is “it” anyway)? How will it impact the underlying revenue and profit pools? In addition, what will determine who will benefit from changes in automotive profit pools? These are the questions we often hear from clients in the automotive, telecoms, technology, and insurance... [Lire la suite]

Analysing Uber’s market moves – and how it intends to disrupt transport markets Opinion I am pretty sure that Uber’s announcements over the past couple of years around building a centre of expertise in driverless vehicles did not come as a surprise to anybody interested in these technologies. Though Uber hasn’t clearly mentioned why it would hire a few hundred engineers or buy a startup to support its driverless capability development, as it has done since then, the reason is quite straightforward: replacing more than one...

A start-up born out of Stanford just entered the driverless car race with a radical approach

A start-up born out of Stanford just entered the driverless car race with a radical approach Drive.ai, a start-up born out of Stanford's artificial intelligence lab, has officially entered the driverless car arms race. But Drive.ai has no interest in building an actual, self-driving car. Rather, as co-founder and president Carol Reiley told Business Insider, the start-up plans to sell "the brains of the car." That car brain comes in the form of sensors, LiDAR, and Radar like many other companies are using, but with one... [Lire la suite]
