Hertzliya, Israel, Oct. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Otonomo, the leading automotive data services platform provider, today announced the results of a new consumer study fielded by SBD Automotive. Connected car data is driving the evolution from private ownership to shared mobility and autonomous driving. But data alone will not enable adoption of these technologies. Consumer trust, enabling technologies, and government action are needed for transformation to take place. Consumer buy-in is critical, so along with SBD Automotive, Otonomo surveyed over 2500 drivers regarding their concerns and opinions about shared mobility and autonomous vehicles. 

“Putting the driver first is in Otonomo’s DNA,” said Ben Volkow, Founder and CEO. ”We believe that for technologies to succeed they must meet the needs of consumers. Otonomo, the automakers, service providers and transportation facilitators need to listen to the interests and concerns of consumers. We hope that this survey provides additional consumer insights that will bring us closer to a future that includes richer driver experiences, more efficient fleet management, shared mobility and ultimately autonomous vehicles, all based on secure and privacy protected connected car data.”
