Nice
This is great idea. I am really curious how it works. Thanks for article.

Re: Integration...
I'd love to see that, though given the few instances that users see an actual discount for services (especially in telecom) if they agree to have their data shared, I wouldn't be optimistic that users ever actually see that. 

Hell, AT&T makes you pay MORE if you want to opt out of U-verse snoopvertising services. 

 

Though yes, if prems went down if you agree to be somewhat tracked, that certainly changes the dynamic.

Re: Integration...
Sensor data first, so pure M2M initially.

Re: Integration...
What about consumer opt-in for a reduction in premiums, a la Progressive Snapshot? Is that a concern?

Re: Integration...
I'm thinking for driver nav, infotainment, etc. Having a core chipset to connect to the automakrer has potential, but there too I'd worry that info is simply going to be used by insurance companies to track driver behavior without the driver having much say about it. Tricky territory we're entering here.

Re: Integration...
Are we talking human to human communication, or automotive engine component to big-data cloud analytics engine communication here? I think Dan said something about "...beyond the smartphone."

Integration...
As a Mazda3 owner I still have to say I prefer systems that use existing smartphones as a tethered data access point than systems that integrate a cellular chipset. Seems like a much more flexible, elegant solution to rely on smartphones (which get updated by many every two years or more) than an embedded chipset that won't keep pace with cellular evolution.
