Project Overview

Vehicle-related commerce is a growing topic of major interest with drivers, OEMs, Tier 1, payment companies, and merchants alike. Development teams from payment technology service providers, merchants, OEM’s, and Tier 1’s need to engage and collaborate to enable a safe and secure transaction experience for the end customer (the driver). The focus of the IVP/EV SIG will be to provide a foundation of knowledge and access to the established ecosystems of automotive, payments, and retail.

  1. Provide a forum for automotive, payments, and retail to understand and develop requirements to enable commerce in the vehicle in a convenient and safe manner in the vehicle.
  2. Define and establish potential projects that mutually benefit and advance the acceptance of in-vehicle payment applications.
  3. Identify and define projects that would advance the standardization of specifications and requirements for in-vehicle payments for all interested industries.
  4. Facilitate and provide a unified industry representation of automaker needs with payments regulatory bodies.

TITLE (In-Vehicle Payments Track)




Introduction and Overview / Update from last AMM

  • John Moon - Wayray
John Moon,(COVESA IVP/EV SIG Lead)

Title: A Perfect Storm – Challenges Ahead for EV

Abstract: As the market and demand for electric vehicles is transforming OEMs, related industries and governments are seeing challenges and new opportunities to support and keep up with the rapid pace of change. Materials for batteries, lack of power infrastructure, needed platforms and systems for EV charging, legislation & regulations for EV infrastructure are some of the issues facing OEMs ability to deliver on the promise but where they do not directly make decisions. On one hand, no ONE entity can solve the problem by themselves, because these are all very fragmented industries, with no huge dominant global players, and on the other hand, the OEMs are used to owning/controlling their value chain and are still following that old model where they want to solve it by themselves. The ONLY way we can solve these problems is by finding technologies and business models that encourage and enable collaboration. Organizations such as COVESA have the potential to play an important role in incubating cross-company / industry initiatives to tie together vehicles, power grids, charging service providers, and payment solutions.

Title: Commerce for Connected Vehicles - A Paradigm Shift

Abstract: Don't just enable the eco-system, BE the eco-system and capture the greater sum of revenue with the same effort. Malik Velani, former Director, Global Business Development at Paypal and co-founder of Commerce orchestration startup, Preczn Inc discusses how OEM’s can take a fintech approach to monetizing payments for good & services related to the vehicle.

Title:  The pains (and fixes) of Public Charging an EV in Europe and North America

Abstract:  There is no turning back the EV boom. In North America and Europe, both OEMs and governments are pushing for a switch to electric vehicles. Yet, charging these vehicles in public - a vital part of the user experience - is still unbelievably complicated. In this presentation, Adam will use 10+ years of experience in the EV industry to explore the changing needs of EV drivers as we transition from ‘pioneer’ to mass market, as well as the common pain points that the industry needs to solve. This includes finding a charging point, to ‘roaming’, to digital payments and the convergence of charging and parking.

Title:  Enabling the global services marketplace with a single location-based API

Abstract:  Intuitive, easy, and secure in-vehicle payments present a huge opportunity for OEMs and service providers to offer a better, more convenient experience for their customers. However, to date there hasn’t been a “killer app” to make the adoption and continuous use of that functionality worth the effort for consumers to onboard, activate, and pay at scale using the vehicle. In this presentation, Dr. Evgeny Klochikhin, CEO of Sheeva.AI will discuss the evolving in-vehicle payments market, including advancements in promising geo-location technology to enable the vehicle-based digital wallet for tolling, fueling, EV charging, parking, curbside pickup, and drive-through. In addition, this novel technology can offer enhanced fleet and asset management applications and extra benefits for the ADAS systems. These applications can be the best approach to monetize in-vehicle connectivity with real-time customer value.

Title: (Panel) Global EV Growth - Building for the new EV demand

Abstract: The state of the EV charging has quite a few actors: OEMs, Tier 1 Suppliers, Power Utilities, Infrastructure Hardware Manufacturers, Charge Point Operators (CPO), and even Big Tech with fundamentally few standards beyond the hardware interfaces. Vertically integration OEMs (read Tesla) can create their own networks but that will create redundancy and would never create coverage at scale. Speakers will bring their industry background and expertise to this panel discussion  to discuss their views on the challenges, opportunities and solutions for OEMs and EV infrastructure suppliers.

Title: The Growth of In-Car Intelligent Assistants: Will voice experiences be the bridge to connected commerce?


How will voice technology drive engagement and adoption while at the same time reduce distraction?

In what way can digital assistants create opportunities for OEMs to promote and monetize point of interest (POI) information?

How will drivers bring their digital lives to their vehicles through voice-first experiences?

Title:  Evolving the EV ecosystem to accelerate adoption.  It takes all of us

Abstract:  Share the background of what Exelon is doing, and where we are engaging with others in the ecosystem. Where are some of the challenges and ideas that we should explore as partners in making this happen whether you are on the supply side of Energy or the Demand side of consumers and trying to navigate features, convenience, and cost?

Chris Moyer (Exelon Corporation) 

Title:  In-Car Payments – How to Make Them Successful

Abstract:  In this discussion, we will discuss the questions - What are the UX consideration to make in-car payments successful? How can we nudge drivers into using in-car payments? What are the stumbling blocks we need to overcome?

Nils Lenke & Dhruv Gupta(Cerence)

Title: What can OEM's, Payment Providers, IVP/EV Developers/Integrators, and Utility Companies Learn From Each Other?

Abstract: OEM's, suppliers, software developers, payment providers, and utility companies each play a key role in helping to drive the adoption of EV vehicles.  Does the customer just want fast, cheap, and green or is there more the story that requires the ecosystem has to come together and explore further?  True partnership requires continuous collaboration, innovation, and thought leadership to overcome the barriers to EV adoption.  How can everyone collaborate together to innovate, drive costs down and drive standardization while ensuring that there will be a  charging infrastructure when and where it might be needed

Challenges for Compliant In-Car Payments in Europe

Speaker: Jakob Gajdzik, Product Owner eCommerce Digital Transactions at BMW

Abstract: As an OEM, there are a series of questions to consider even before in-car payment can be designed technically. Regulations such as PSD2, authentication methods, available standards, and payment process constraints need to be considered. Join us on our road towards compliant in-car payments.
