NXP and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are entering into a partnership to deliver a secure, edge-to-cloud compute solution that enables new opportunities for connected vehicles. “The automotive industry requires a new type of compute solution with centralized access to vehicle-wide data that can work securely and collaboratively with the cloud. The integration of AWS edge and cloud services with NXP’s new S32G vehicle network processor for service-oriented gateways addresses the challenge,” explains a press release.

Connecting cars to the cloud enables new data-driven applications, such as monitoring for potential component failures, preventing more costly repairs and recalls and improve customer experience by minimizing service visits. Mobility and insurance companies can leverage the data to create new business models and provide cost-reduction benefits to drivers according to vehicle condition and driving behavior. Carmakers can offer new services to create new user experiences and capabilities, such as remote viewing inside and around the vehicle for convenience, safety and security.
