With the growth in connected cars, autonomous driving, sharing services, ride-hailing, and electric vehicles, the automotive industry is moving towards a services-led automotive ecosystem commonly known as mobility-as-a-service. This has dramatically increased the demand for a fast and flexible mobility service platform that’s capable of rapidly processing the vast quantity of data.
In this context, Fujitsu and Autonomic, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Smart Mobility, have announced a joint collaboration to offer OEMs worldwide a fast and flexible solution. The solution will support the automotive industry’s transformation to mobility-as-a-service models.
Through the new partnership, Fujitsu and Autonomic aim to combine their business acumen, industry expertise, and digital technologies to accelerate mobility-as-a-service adoption.
Leveraging Autonomic’s expertise in cloud services for connected vehicles and Fujitsu’s capabilities in technology integration and experience in the automotive space, the companies will initially deliver the Transportation Mobility Cloud (TMC) and Fujitsu systems integration services to Ford Motor Company, followed by a rollout to other automakers globally.
