Otonomo announced the Anonymization Engine, an integrated service designed to dynamically protect driver data while simplifying anonymous automotive data integration for app developers and service providers. The platform reportedly allows OEMs to maintain driver privacy and comply with regulations such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). App and service providers gain access to anonymized data that they can use to deliver a wide range of offerings, such as smart city planning and mapping, weather and hazard safety alerts, predictive maintenance and vehicle health management, and traffic pattern research for retail, media, and many other use cases.
In May 2018, Otonomo announced the Consent Management Hub, which validates driver consent with each personal data request from third-party mobility service providers. With the addition of the Anonymization Engine, Otonomo says it can address both personalized and anonymized use cases in a single platform.
