Toyota and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are expanding their global collaboration, applying AWS's portfolio of services to expand Toyota's Mobility Services Platform (MSPF).
The partnership will help Toyota engineers develop, deploy, and manage the next generation of data-driven mobility services for driver and passenger safety, security, comfort, and convenience in Toyota's cloud-connected vehicles.
Toyota's MSPF leverages the reliability and scalability of AWS's global infrastructure, as well as development expertise from AWS Professional Services, to meet the challenge of processing and analyzing data from operations within Toyota's worldwide fleet of connected vehicles. The MSPF and its application programming interfaces (API) will enable Toyota to collect data from connected vehicles and apply it towards vehicle design and development, new contextual services such as car share, rideshare, full-service lease, and new corporate and consumer services such as proactive vehicle maintenance notifications and driving behavior-based insurance.
"Connectivity drives all of the processes of development, production, sales and service in the automotive business," Shigeki Tomoyama, chief information and security officer, and chief production officer at Toyota Motor Corporation, said in a statement. "Expanding our agreement with AWS to strengthen our vehicle data platform will be a major advantage for CASE activities within Toyota."
