If you are interested in how APIs are central to the rise of the Connected Car, I recommend checking out the talk by Sebastian Mennicke of IC-Consult at Odette 2014
Sebastian is speaking about the usage of the Axway API Gateway for secure APIs, using the example of the BMW i series project. The abstract is below:
The move to the connected vehicle is already in full swing with all major automotive OEMs offering systems that connect vehicles to the Internet. And the BMW i series is already on the road proving this evolution. The market opportunity has the potential to be huge: according to research firm SBD and the GSMA, the global connected car industry will be worth €39 billion in 2018, up from €13 billion in 2012.
In order for manufacturers to truly cash in, they need to consider the potential challenges that arise from this new era of vehicle mobility. Automakers need to look at the next generation security and integration technologies so they can control exactly who has access to the vehicle. The key to this is API Management.
APIs are what connect the apps in connected vehicles to the services which they depend on. Therefore, there is a need to manage and govern the APIs that enable collaboration between a vehicle and an app, such as the registration of developers and apps, API key distribution and revocation, and API version management.
Sebastian Mennicke, Senior Consultant at leading Identity & Access Management Consultancy iC Consult, shows how the Axway API Gateway can help to integrate mobile apps with backend APIs by the example of the BMW i series project.
- Real world best practice use cases for integrating mobile apps on the car with enterprise data systems
- How an efficient API management strategy is fundamental to securing flow of data across a network of connected cars
- How to control the access to and from your car in the emerging Internet of Things
