The connected car has become another Internet portal after the mobile phone, and the problem of data access of the connected car has become increasingly prominent. Vehicle data access involves issues such as data security, enterprise competition, service innovation, etc. The concept of "extended vehicle" proposed by original equipment manufacturers obtains data control rights on the grounds of security, and "factual control" of data through technical measures enables it to A situation of "exclusive control" over automotive data results in less competition, less consumer choice and less innovative services. Therefore, it is necessary to return the control of car data from "car manufacturers" to "connected car users", and the mode of data access changes from "proprietary server" to "shared server" or "in-vehicle application platform".
