Customers can receive vehicle-generated data regardless of the manufacturer via our harmonized interface. Furthermore, step by step more OEMs will be connected. This minimizes the integration and maintenance effort on the consumer side tremendously since only one interface to CARUSO has to be implemented and maintained.
