Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) has collaborated with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company, to expand Toyota’s Mobility Services Platform (MSPF), an ecosystem to help its engineers to 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.
The company said its Mobility Services Platform, or MSPF, which will be expanded using the AWS collaboration, will leverage 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
Company said , the MSPF and its application programming interfaces (API) is intended to collect data from connected vehicles and apply it towards vehicle design and development, new contextual services such as car share, ride share, full-service lease, and new corporate and consumer services such as proactive vehicle maintenance notifications and driving behavior based insurance.
The partnership between Toyota and AWS extends to Toyota’s entire enterprise, and will help develop a foundation for streamlined and secure data sharing throughout the company and accelerate its move toward CASE (Connected, Autonomous/Automated, Shared and Electric) mobility technologies.
Shigeki Tomoyama, Chief Information & Security Officer and Chief Production Officer at Toyota Motor Corp, said, “Connectivity drives all of the processes of development, production, sales and service in the automotive business. Expanding our agreement with AWS to strengthen our vehicle data platform will be a major advantage for CASE activities within Toyota.”
Amazon had previously partnered with VOLKSWAGEN in 2019 for developing an industrial cloud, and recently expanded the partnership to develop the data portal into an industry-wide marketplace where business customers can buy and sell industrial applications.
