Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi launches Intelligent Cloud on Microsoft Azure

Automotive alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi announced the production release of the Alliance Intelligent Cloud. It is a new platform that is enabling three companies to deliver connected services in vehicles sold in nearly all 200 markets served by the alliance members.

Culminating joint development efforts between the Alliance and Microsoft, the auto industry’s first global and most ambitious connected vehicle program will be deployed utilizing cloud, AI, and IoT technologies provided by Azure. Microsoft's service will provide the alliance with a global data platform to securely capture, manage and analyze vehicle data to deliver intelligent services based on the vast volume of data created by connected vehicles.

The first vehicles produced with Alliance Intelligent Cloud technology will be the all-new Renault Clio and selected Nissan Leaf models sold in Japan and Europe. These are also the first vehicles powered by the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform available to consumers at scale. Vehicles utilizing the Alliance Intelligent Cloud will benefit from seamless access to the internet, providing enhanced remote diagnostics, continuous software deployment, firmware updates and access to infotainment services.

The Alliance Intelligent Cloud is capable of connecting vehicles with future smart cities infrastructure as it develops and with potential future partners. With this new initiative, any third-party seeking to connect with all legacy and future connected Alliance vehicles will have a single point of contact to partner with.
