Fujitsu and Autonomic announce a joint collaboration to offer OEMs worldwide a fast and flexible solution to support the automotive industry’s transformation to mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) models.

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.

Supported by Amazon Web Services, the TMC connects diverse elements of urban mobility systems (connected vehicles, mass transit, personal mobile devices, city infrastructure, and service providers) with the goal of orchestrating a safer, more efficient and sustainable transportation network. With the TMC, Autonomic delivers a flexible and secure platform that provides automakers and other developers the building blocks necessary for connected mobility applications ranging from self-driving car routing, management of large-scale fleets, transit planning and more.

Fujitsu brings its deep experience in OEM systems integration to offer mobility technologies and services including Fujitsu’s stream data processing technology (Dracena). This solution enhancement speeds up the deployment of mobility services to individual customers through the continuous and dynamic processing of vast quantities of IoT data from OEMs, insurance companies, and other verticalized input.

As part of the collaboration, Fujitsu also will offer access to its broader digital consulting, services and solutions, as well as its global sales network, to enhance sales.
