Otonomo Partners With NXP to Turbocharge Edge Computing on Wheels

New collaboration leverages vehicle edge computing to reduce data processing costs, 
enhance privacy and expand data-driven capabilities 

HERZLIYA, Israel and SAN JOSE, CA – (December 15, 2021: Otonomo Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: OTMO), a leading mobility intelligence platform provider, today announced it has joined forces with NXP® Semiconductors, to accelerate the time-to-value for the data generated at the vehicle edge. The partnership ensures compatibility and business continuity between NXP’s S32G vehicle network processors at the vehicle edge and the Otonomo Mobility Intelligence Platform in the cloud, to offer a seamless, secure infrastructure for transferring data from the vehicle to the cloud. It also enables Otonomo to offer newly differentiated and connected vehicle data and mobility insights that can accelerate the time-to-value for secure connected vehicle applications, while breaking down long-standing silos in the automotive industry.

“We’re excited to work with Otonomo to deliver a secure, end-to-end solution for processing connected vehicle data,” said Brian Carlson, Global Marketing Director for Vehicle Control and Networking Solutions, NXP. “Our partnership enables us to securely unlock more value by processing data streams at the edge in real-time and reducing the data transmission cost while enabling new and expanded business opportunities for stakeholders across the connected vehicle ecosystem.”  

Extracting Value from Connected Vehicle Data at the Edge  

Otonomo vehicle data and mobility insights are utilized by businesses, fleets, and smart cities for a wide variety of use cases, including, but not limited to fleet management, insurance, in-vehicle management, emergency services, mapping, electric vehicle (EV) management, subscription-based services, parking, predictive maintenance, in-vehicle services, traffic management, and smart cities. 

NXP’s state-of-the-art vehicle processing platforms generate massive amounts of data that can power strategic applications ranging from predictive maintenance to driver safety and advanced traffic management. Additionally, vehicle data can be mined for data insights that enable new opportunities and use cases. The combination of NXP’s in-vehicle hardware and software and the cloud-based Otonomo Mobility Intelligence Platform propels these innovations forward by introducing the ability to: 

  • Extend Otonomo inside the vehicle to provide in-vehicle data processing and synthetic sensor data to its data marketplace 
  • Identify additional data streams that can be used to lower the cost of data transmission, improve existing service delivery, create additional value-added services, and prioritize current and future vehicle data use cases 
  • Identify new, value-added, edge vehicle data streams that are not readily available and collaborate with OEMs to make them available using extended Otonomo APIs 
  • Provide end-to-end customization opportunities for OEMs and fleet operators to meet their unique vehicle data needs, cut costs, reduce storage needs, drive security and privacy, and provide premium offerings for customized data access 

“Automakers are under pressure to move faster to deliver new and better-connected cars, and edge computing helps them accomplish that,” said Ben Volkow, CEO and Co-founder, Otonomo. “Our collaboration with NXP ensures data captured at the vehicle edge is aligned with the driver needs and adjusted dynamically based on dynamic conditions. As a result the edge computing data is application-ready; thus enabling the edge data to be more efficient and aligned with privacy and security needs.”
