Amazon Web Services Announces AWS IoT FleetWise

Amazon Web Services, Inc. announced AWS IoT FleetWise, a new service that the company claims enables automakers to collect, transform and transfer vehicle data to the cloud in near real-time, more easily and at lower cost. With AWS IoT FleetWise, automakers can collect and organize data in any format found in their vehicles (regardless of make, model, or options) and standardize data format for easy data analysis in the cloud. AWS IoT FleetWise helps automakers transfer data to the cloud in near real-time using the service’s intelligent filtering capabilities that allow developers to reduce network traffic by selecting which data to transfer and setting rules for Know when to transfer them based on parameters such as weather, location, or vehicle type. Once the data is in the cloud, automakers can use it for applications that remotely diagnose individual vehicle issues, analyze vehicle fleet health to help prevent potential recalls or safety issues, or improve advanced technologies such as autonomous driving and advanced driver assistance systems with analysis and machine. learning.

AWS IoT FleetWise can access a vehicle’s unique data format and then structure and normalize the data so automakers don’t have to develop custom data collection systems, AWS explains. Automakers start in the AWS Management Console by defining and modeling vehicle attributes and sensors associated with the car’s make, model, and options for individual vehicle types or multiple vehicle types across their entire fleet. After modeling the vehicle, automakers install the AWS IoT FleetWise application on the vehicle’s gateway (an in-vehicle communications hub that monitors and collects data), so it can read, decode, and transmit information to and from AWS.

With AWS IoT FleetWise’s intelligent filtering controls, automakers can select the exact data they need for their use cases and help reduce costs by limiting the amount of data transferred to the cloud by creating rules conditional to filter the data they want to collect and analyze (e.g. sensor data from hard braking events associated with a vehicle make and model). Once data is moved to the cloud with AWS IoT FleetWise, automakers can use AWS services to extract value from vehicle data.

“While automakers have been collecting, storing and analyzing vehicle data for years, they are not equipped to handle the explosion of data generated by advanced vehicle safety and autonomous driving systems, nor have they nor access to the near real-time data needed to help proactively troubleshoot vehicle issues,” said Mike Tzamaloukas, General Manager of Automotive IoT at AWS. “With AWS IoT FleetWise, automakers can now efficiently collect that data, transform it, and gain deep, actionable insights into the condition and use of vehicles on the road Automakers can now use the power of AWS to service millions of vehicles, increase vehicle safety, and vehicles and improve customer service.

AWS IoT FleetWise is a new service that is part of AWS for Automotive, a comprehensive offering of AWS services and AWS Partner Network (APN) solutions used by automotive and mobility customers worldwide to help automotive customers to digitally transform their business for connected mobility, digital customer engagement, product design and engineering, manufacturing and supply chain.
