Best, Christian

I’m happy to announce that the abstract titled

„QUANTIFIED CARS: NOVEL DIGITAL SERVICES AND BUSINESS MODELS BASED ON VEHICLE DATA“

sent in for the session „Business Models in the Age of Digitalisation“ at the New Business Models Conference has been accepted.

Authors: Christian Kaiser, Alexander Stocker

We will now revise the abstract and hand in the final version.

 

Beside that we have submitted an abstract to the TRA (Transport Research Arena) conference in Vienna.

 

Best, Christian

Together with my colleagues Peter Mörtl and Alexander Stocker, I’ve attended the aegis* kick-off meeting in Berlin and presented the q-car idea as part of the demonstrator/pilot use case „automotive and road safety data“, where we use data from a self developed vehicle data logger (based on a beaglebone black single platine computer), develop algorithms on the aegis platform and a smartphone application. weiterlesen

Happy to announce that the paper of Alexander Stocker and me was published* open access in the e&i journal (elektrotechnik und informationstechnik)

Abstract:

A modern vehicle is a “computer on four wheels” equipped with many different types of sensors. The so enabled continuous collection of vehicle lifecycle data facilitates the generation of innovative products, services and business models. In analogy to the Quantified-Self-movement, the USA has already evolved a plethora of Quantified Car startup companies backed by enormous amounts of risk capital, reaching more than 20 million USD in some cases. These developments clearly demonstrate how high investors perceive the market value of a working digital ecosystem for Quantified Car. This paper provides an introduction into the Quantified-Car-phenomenon and analyses the business models of three different Quantified-Car-startups: Automatic, Mojio, and Dash. One major finding is that their use cases, services and underlying technologies show many similarities. The paper closes with a discussion on the increasing competition between the players from the ICT and the automotive domain on the supremacy in the development of a digital ecosystem for Quantified Car.

At some point in 2015/2016, right when hypes like big data and the Internet of Things reached where present all around, my colleague Alexander Stocker come up with the idea that he’d like to work on something that we can later use ourself, and to meet company interests, it would be nice if it’s based on vehicle data. weiterlesen
