Before the advent of connected vehicles, consumers simply drove their new vehicles out of dealers and reacted to issues as they arose. By combining diagnostics and connectivity, dealers, manufacturers, fleet managers and service providers like rental car companies, are able to offer additional services to their customers. Ecosystem actors aggregate automotive data and provide contextual and advanced services like early field warnings, predictive maintenance, remote diagnostics and repair, fuel management practices. This reduces operations costs of the vehicle, reaction time to issues, accident liability and fines and also enhances customer experience.
