A group of fleet associations and telematics providers have partnered with Enterprise Holdings to create a new organization focused on clarifying ownership of and access to vehicle data.
The Global Alliance for Vehicle Data Access (GAVDA) was officially formed on August 20 in Washington, D.C. According to the group’s website, its goal is to protect owner access to vehicle data in an effort to promote security and personal privacy. The group cites a current lack of standards or regulations as a potential issue as vehicle computer systems become more and more complex.
The group consists of several trade associations, including the American Car Rental Association, the National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) and the Car Sharing Association (CSA).
