Data Your Car Collects

The subject of Data Collection is sometimes a Touchy Subject and a lot of it appears to be done unknown or by signing papers when purchasing that are not read. Anyway there was a TV Programme this week which highlighted (BMW3) some of facts (mainly additional Cameras as Specified or unknown) which I thought was worth sharing. These following attachments are US Based but nevertheless interesting, not so sure how they apply in the EU - Dave 🤫😎

“Some of the data from these sensors never leaves the car, but increasingly, a lot of it does. Manufacturers such as BMW, General Motors, Nissan, Tesla, and Toyota are selling vehicles with data connections that allow them to gather a detailed portrait of both car and driver. Companies such as Mobileye, which provides computer vision systems to BMW, Nissan, and Volkswagen, are helping carmakers to collect that data through the cameras embedded in cars that drivers own today.”
