Wejo Unleashes the Smart City Business Potential by Delivering Livestream of Value-Add Parking Data Across Europe in Partnership With Leading German Auto Manufacturer

Share

The strengthened partnership brings first-to-market livestream access to parking event data into Wejo’s data environment to help any Smart City, Mobility Services Provider or Infrastructure Operator identify parking opportunities and cities. Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services GmbH and Wejo have agreed to expand the partnership to new use cases in order to move the realization of a truly Smart City one step closer.

This next chapter in Wejo’s #DataForGood strategy, is helped by an expansion of a partnership between Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services GmbH and Wejo established in 2019. The live flow of anonymized vehicle data will stream approximately 10-14 million unique parking events daily from Mercedes-Benz vehicles in the EU.

“With more use cases to be worked together in the future, we are committed to creating long-term business value for the benefit of Smart City operators and end-consumers,” said Benoit Joly, EVP Automotive & Mobility at Wejo. “We are very pleased to expand our partnership with Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services in order to keep creating together smarter, more efficient and safer journeys for all.”

This expanded partnership builds off the Wejo neutral server program. Live or on-demand, Wejo has a commitment to data privacy to ensure its proper utilization. This flow of information ultimately streamlines congestion and brings a smoother parking experience for the benefit of drivers.

With millions of vehicles around the globe, the realization of “live” data furthers Wejo’s data-driven solutions and delivers new value to a growing mobility ecosystem.
