Wejo Announces Data Agreement with Toyota Motor North America

13 January 2023

Wejo Group Limited a global leader in Smart Mobility for Good cloud and software solutions for connected, electric and autonomous vehicle data, today announced a data agreement with Toyota Motor North America. The agreement will allow Wejo to provide personalized connected vehicle data services for participating cloud-connected fleet vehicles in the U.S. It represents an important step towards Wejo’s capture of the estimated $61 billion by 2030 service addressable connected vehicle data market. The data Wejo receives will be derived from participating Toyota fleet vehicles and processed and anonymized through Wejo’s ADEPT platform. The data can then be leveraged by telematics service providers (TSPs), fleet owners and fleet management service (FMS) companies interested in utilizing data from embedded OEM hardware to support fleet services instead of more unreliable aftermarket hardware.The Wejo data from Toyota’s participating connected fleet vehicles can empower TSPs and FMS companies with the insights needed to inform operations, including geographic locations, fuel insights, odometer and speed readings, and tire pressure. Additionally, Wejo will have access to driver behavior information from these participating Toyota fleet vehicles that includes the necessary data to promote safe driving. By leveraging driver performance, Wejo’s customers will be able to identify opportunities for improvement and training, ultimately allowing fleet owners peace of mind, knowing that they are leveraging data for the good of their fleets and drivers while protecting their investments and reducing exposure to liability.

“Enabling Wejo to deliver TSPs and FMS companies with data-driven enhanced fleet management insights for their fleet customers will help improve safety and drive efficiencies on the roadways,” said Josh Batie, general manager of Toyota Connected Technologies. “Our partnership with Wejo allows us to expand how and where we’re offering our data while keeping the control in the hands of our customers.”

In addition to traditional fleet management offerings, participating Toyota fleet vehicle owners will get their data directly from their vehicles without the need for additional aftermarket hardware or data plans. However, Toyota fleet-connected vehicle data is shared only at the express request and direction of Toyota customers that have expressly agreed to such sharing with Wejo. Additionally, Wejo ADEPT delivers the highest standards in keeping consumers’ data safe.

“Smart mobility for good is at the core of everything we do at Wejo, and our partnership with Toyota is a continued example of this mission,” commented Benoit Joly, chief commercial officer at Wejo. “Enabling TSPs, fleet owners, and FMS with the data and insights necessary to keep their drivers safe on the road while driving efficiencies across fleets is a prime example of how smart mobility can deliver benefits for business and society.”
