Marketplace for Car Manufacturing Data Partners (led by Atos)

What is the pilot?

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).

What will i3-MARKET do?

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.

What are the expected results?

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.

Pilots Environment

In the data world of the automotive sector, Atos provides the AGORA data-marketplace which will be integrated into the i3-MARKET backplane.

Use Cases

UC1. AGORA data-marketplace integration: integration of a fully operational marketplace with i3-Market ecosystem

UC2.  Fleet managers: making use of data for operational decision-making optimisation

UC3. Insurance Companies and Insurance brokers: Usage-based Insurance (UBI) foster market uptake

Industrial Data and Data Assets

The marketplace offers data from open data sources

The marketplace is offering its own data to be shared through a developed data connector that collects open data sets from open data portals and a developed translator to get the data in CIDM specification under which AGORA data-marketplace works. This translator is used by the data provision part of a demonstrator to push data from sources external to the marketplace, and by the marketplace to allow data consumption in other models.
