Description

The After Sales Market of the European Automotive Industry, has become a very important market. The introduction of innovative mobile applications will enable new ways of working and collaboration among car manufacturers, workshops, road assistance services and the customer, who will all benefit from this. MyCarEvent will develop and implement new applications and services, which can be seamlessly and securely accessed by mobile devices. They will provide manufacturer specific car repair information according to the problems identified by the Off-/On-Board-Diagnosis systems. The information needs to be presented multi-lingually and the mobile worker needs to interact with the service portals of the car manufacturers and independent services while performing the repair of the car. By setting the requirements MyCarEvent will foster the aims of Block Exemption of the EC and will support the worker in coping with the increasing complexity of cars and their repair procedures. The project will also provide for 'telematic' support for car drivers with self-services in situations where a little advice or a software fix is all that is needed. The results will be transferable to other industries which call for the remote services of manufactured consumer goods, using pan-European technical standards. MyCarEvent is strongly supported by car manufacturers, independent and dependent workshops and road assistances services, software developers, diagnostic tool manufacturers, and leading academics for a sufficient coverage of the competences needed to perform such a integrated project successfully. Telecommunication providers and mobile device manufacturers will be brought into the project as dictated by the requirements to be detailed in the first stage. MyCarEvent will work with ISO to establish Standards for the collaboration in the Automotive Industry and will support value creation by utilizing the potentials of mobile devices and the interoperable use of service portals.
