The power of vehicle data: our City Dashboard

Benefit from our safety, infrastructure, traffic, parking, and micro-weather data to increase your capacity for holistic diagnostics and data-based decision making.

Making the right decisions based on comprehensive data

To meet cities’ goals of efficient, safe and clean urban transportation, data-driven decision making will be a key enabler. At Mercedes-Benz we strongly believe that our vehicle data can make a significant contribution to improve safety in urban traffic, create transparency and increase efficiency in decision making. Therefore, we created the City Dashboard combining several of our Mercedes-Benz Data APIs to help cities in their operational and strategic decision-making in the areas of safety, traffic, infrastructure analytics and micro-weather.

The City Dashboard and API offers multiple data product layers in an easy-to-use interface with multiple functionalities.

1. Various city-specific data products in one convenient user interface

With our established Car-to-X technology, Mercedes-Benz vehicles communicate between each other and the transport infrastructure. The vehicle fleet continuously scans and evaluates the road infrastructure and its environment to detect potholes and other damages, slippery roads and safety hotspots, existing and missing traffic signs, parking space utilisation and other changes in real-time. The data is analysed in our backend and uses the swarm intelligence of our fleet to track and predict changes over time. To help you make the right decisions.

2. Easy installation

The ready-to-use application is easy to install and simple to operate without programming knowledge. The City Dashboard does not require any additional hardware and it allows the integration of additional external data sources.

3. Data protection

Safety and security have always been of utmost importance to Mercedes-Benz in both the physical and the digital world. We naturally extend our high safety and quality expectations from the physical into the digital world and therefore handle data with the same care we are known for applying in our vehicles.

Customers provide their explicit consent to share their anonymized data for the data products included in our City Dashboard. Only data from vehicles and customers who provided their consent are used. Through the Mercedes-Benz Data Privacy Center the customers always have full transparency on their data and control over their data use.
