In the data world of the automotive sector, Atos maintains the AGORA data marketplace which will be integrated into the i3-MARKET backplane. AGORA brings data supply and demand together and provides the possibility of efficient matchmaking through an open and brand-independent platform.
It acts as a marketplace operator between original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Cross-sectorial Service Providers through a harmonised (standardised) Common Vehicle Information Model (CVIM) that removes all brand-dependent data formats, thereby unlocking the potential of vehicle data.
Currently, the volume of data in AGORA amounts to around 4,000,000 data-packages indexed from bill of materials (BOMs) from at least three different manufacturers (VW, Renault and Fiat).
i3-MARKET will allow automating the generation of metadata descriptions about the parts included in the extensive list of BOMs. It will expand the marketplace’s functionality to increase its robustness, integrate security and privacy protection and work towards the improvement of scalability.
In addition, the i3-MARKET solution will advance smart contracting between the parties involved in the data value chain; from the owners of the vehicle to the car manufacturers, the marketplace and service providers. B2B or B2B2C scenarios will be set-up.
It is expected that with the inclusion into i3-MARKET, AGORA will face a 20% increase in vehicle owners offering vehicle data to service providers and a 10% reduction of running vehicle time. This could have an impact on multiple factors such as environmental protection and help the forecast and management of traffic jams. In addition, a 30% increase in the volume of data and contracts managed by AGORA marketplace is expected.
