Mercedes-Benz's push to turn the data collected from its vehicles into fresh source of revenue is gaining traction.
The German automaker has partnered with the Netherlands' Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management to monitor the country's 130,000 km (81,000) of road through data collected by its vehicles.
It's the second major data-collection project for Mercedes after teaming up with Transport for London to help improve road safety in the megacity by identifying high risk locations before accidents took place.
