Ford Motor Company and Autonomic sign a multi-year deal with Amazon for cloud connectivity services
American car manufacturer Ford Motor Company along with Autonomic - a company that offers Transportation Mobility Cloud (TMC) - have entered into a deal with Amazon Web Services (AWS) wherein the latter will offer its cloud connectivity services and connected car application development services for the transportation industry. According to the deal, Autonomic's TMC will be powered by AWS which will become a standard offering for connected car solution in Ford vehicles. AWS has been one of the most popular names when it comes to services like Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, analytics, and compute services. The collaboration with AWS will allow additional partnership and business opportunities for automobile manufacturers, public transit operators, large-scale fleet operators, and software developers.
Autonomic will also work with Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and System Integrators (Sis) to offer vehicle connectivity services and capabilities for developing connected vehicle cloud services, vehicle features, and mobile applications to automotive manufacturers and mobility application developers. Automobile manufacturers and application developers can make use of TMC to avoid the large investments as well as to help save time that would otherwise be needed for the development of the connected technology. TMS offers a platform wherein car manufacturers as well as application developers can customise the products in order to make them suit individual requirements. TMC also provides bi-directional connectivity to the cloud from vehicles. It securely sends and receieves vehicle data in real time, and it gives software developers easy access to the processed data to be able to create applications for drivers, fleet-owners, and vehicle manufacturers. TMC is vehicle brand agnostic and provides the API-centric, cloud-based software development experience that developers of mobile applications prefer.
"This collaboration will significantly expand our opportunity to deliver the very best experiences to Ford vehicle and mobility customers," said Marcy Klevorn, president of Ford Mobility. "I am excited that our future cloud standard for connected vehicle solutions will be powered by AWS in addition to Autonomic's Transportation Mobility Cloud. Working with AWS and Autonomic, Ford and our mobility partners will have access to the industry-leading mobility platform."
"The collaboration with Ford and Autonomic transforms the way automotive customers and partners develop connected vehicle cloud services," said Andy Jassy, CEO of AWS. "Autonomic customers will be able to bring innovative mobility services and differentiated customer experiences to their customers worldwide, by integrating TMC with AWS, the industry's broadest and deepest cloud platform. Such capabilities, together with AWS's Partner Network community and broad customer base in Automotive, will help reimagine the future of the automobile industry."
