CARUSO was founded in 03/2017 as an industry initiative emerging in the Independent Automotive Aftermarket (IAM). Our go-live with active data delivery was in 11/2017. Since then, our mission is to provide access to car data for all players in the mobility sector. Our platform provides open, fair, and non-discriminatory access to in-vehicle data across different brands.
Our neutrality is reflected in our shareholder structure, which represents a healthy potpourri of the automotive industry. We believe that in order to build up a sustainable ecosystem its diversity, openness & neutrality must be reflected in the shareholder structure, too. This structure is what distinguishes CARUSO from others and makes us truly neutral.
We are an active member of the community, in particular of ↗ISO Working Group on the ‘extended vehicle’ concept, the ↗W3C Automotive Working Group, and the ↗Bitkom. We are also actively contributing to the events, meetings, workshops, and working groups in the automotive sector.
