BVRLA explores attitudes to connected vehicle data

Release Date: 

Results from the latest BVRLA Fleet Technology Survey have provided some much-needed insight into the sector’s views on connected vehicle and driver data.

BVRLA members and fleet managers sharing their views on data access, control, protection, sharing and cost. In a separate questionnaire, drivers were asked about their attitudes on sharing data.

“Connected vehicle data is rapidly becoming the new currency of the fleet sector and will drive many business models in future,” said BVRLA Chief Executive, Gerry Keaney.

“This is a new, unregulated environment which explains much of the uncertainty and concern about the roles and responsibilities played by different fleet sector participants. Our responsibility is clear. The BVRLA will play a lead role in helping the fleet sector work with government and the wider automotive supply chain to ensure that all parties share data in an open, secure and fair way. By doing this, we can make sure that businesses and consumers continue to enjoy a competitive choice of suppliers for fleet management, aftermarket and mobility services.”

The results from the Survey were unveiled at the 2017 BVRLA Fleet Technology Congress on 5 July 2017 and a summary of the results are presented in a two-page infographic .
