Companies sign global, multiyear contract to work on next-generation connected car technologies.
The Renault-Nissan Alliance, together with their partner Microsoft are working together to develop next-generation connected services for cars powered by Microsoft Azure, one of the company’s intelligent cloud offerings.
These new services promise to improve customer experience via advanced navigation, predictive maintenance and vehicle centric services, remote monitoring of car features, external mobile experiences and over-the-air updates.
“A car is becoming increasingly connected, intelligent and personal,” said Ogi Redzic, Renault-Nissan Alliance Senior Vice-President, Connected Vehicles and Mobility Services. “Partnering with Microsoft allows us to accelerate the development of the associated key technologies needed to enable scenarios our customers want and build all-new ones they haven’t even imagined. We aim to become the provider of connected mobility for everyone with one single global platform.”
The Renault-Nissan Alliance is planning to develop connectivity technologies and features to support the launch of more than 10 vehicles with autonomous driving technologies by 2020.
