The Renault-Nissan Alliance and Microsoft have signed a global, multi-year agreement to jointly develop next-generation connected vehicle technologies.
The two companies will work together to create next-generation connected services for cars powered by Microsoft Azure, one of the company’s intelligent cloud offerings. These new services will improve customer experience via advanced navigation, predictive maintenance and vehicle centric services, the remote monitoring of car features, external mobile experiences, and over-the-air updates.
“A car is becoming increasingly connected, intelligent and personal. 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,” said Ogi Redzic, Renault-Nissan Alliance senior VP, connected vehicles and mobility services.
