Visteon Partners with AWS for Connected Vehicle Technology

Visteon Partners with AWS for Connected Vehicle Technology | THE SHOPVisteon has reached a deal with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to utilize its cloud capabilities for Visteon’s AllGo connected vehicle technology, the company announced.

The collaboration will utilize multiple AWS technology solutions across IoT, storage, and compute categories and a fast, secure cloud environment to handle connected vehicle activities and create the car’s own digital ecosystem, Visteon said.

AllGo features automotive-optimized versions of mobility, navigation, parking and infotainment apps and provides integration based on Android Automotive, the company said. AllGo vehicle connectivity features include:

  • Ability to perform vehicle software updates over-the-air (OTA) instead of at the dealership. This capability is powered by AWS IoT Core and AWS IoT Device Management.
  • An automotive App Store that allows vehicle manufacturers to develop and manage proprietary apps, allows owners to customize their own suite of in-vehicle apps, and securely handles activities like payment integration.

“This collaboration is an important step toward using AWS technologies and cloud systems to improve capabilities for automotive app developers and OEMs while providing a better in-vehicle experience for drivers and passengers,” said Yasser Alsaied, Vice President of IoT for AWS. “We share Visteon’s vision of building a more connected, convenient, and safer vehicle experience.”

AllGo offers native applications as well as the ability to download the most popular mobility apps. This solution provides the opportunity for developers to create new and OEM-proprietary applications that add value, while meeting consumer demand for an experience rivaling smartphone and other connected devices, the company said. Over-the-air update capability keeps software-enabled features running smooth and the cockpit experience new and fresh.

“AllGo is at the forefront of connected car technologies for the mobility industry,” said Yeddanapudi Sivakumar, Director-Cockpit for Visteon. “Our collaboration with AWS allows us to leverage their world-class cloud capabilities, expertise and technology to help us deliver the next generation of connected services.”
