While the automotive industry is undergoing a major technological transformation, the world's giant automotive companies join forces to respond to expectations faster and safer.
In particular, the brands Suzuki, Subaru, Daihatsu, Toyota and Mazda, who want to respond quickly to the constantly evolving and renewed connectivity technologies, agreed to jointly develop solutions for new generation vehicle communication devices. Under the agreement, communication systems will be standardized for safer and more connected services. In this way, it is aimed to connect cars and communities more easily by using common communication systems and connected services.
Technologies such as connectivity, cloud, artificial intelligence, autonomous and electricity that bring serious change to the automotive industry make cars constantly connected with their environment. While technologies in this field are advancing rapidly, manufacturers continue to develop vehicle communication devices and solutions independently. So much so that even with basic connectivity services such as remote start functions, each company takes a different approach to developing and processing relevant resources. From this point of view, automotive manufacturers who want to offer safer and more convenient connection solutions to consumers as soon as possible, have started to offer common solutions by going global cooperation. Suzuki Motor Corporation (Suzuki), Subaru Corporation (Subaru), Daihatsu Motor Co. Ltd. (Daihatsu), Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) and Mazda Motor Corporation (Mazda) agreed to jointly develop solutions for new generation vehicle communication devices. Under the agreement, communication systems will be standardized for safer and more connected services, and cars and communities will be connected using common communication systems and connected services.
Suzuki, Subaru, Daihatsu and Mazda brands have been integrating their own technologies into the main vehicle communication technologies developed by Toyota to date. With the agreement, companies, for new generation connected cars; They will install systems with common connectivity features from vehicles to networks and vehicle communication device center. As a result, with the improvement of the communication quality between vehicles and vehicle communication device center, better quality and more efficient connected services will be provided to customers, such as clearer phone calls or faster connection between customers and operators. The partnership will help reduce development burdens for each company involved in the partnership and facilitate system operation and version updates that include additional new functionality, as well as optimize resources such as facilities and personnel. Signatory companies will also consider collaborating with like-minded partners on the agreed joint development as they continue to develop services that improve people's lives and solve social problems.
Accelerating the development of common infrastructure communication devices
With the CASE (Connectivity, Autonomous / automatic, Shared and Electric) field, which brought a serious change to the automotive industry; Technology and business are making rapid progress in the way they communicate and process data, including cloud services, the internet of things, big data and artificial intelligence. By analyzing the development of vehicle communication devices, which are the main functions of the connected vehicle, with joint entities, companies are able to offer their customers safer and more convenient connected services as soon as possible. Positioning the development of applications and services as a division within the company; It accelerates the development of vehicle communication devices while increasing productivity. Thus, each company can focus more on developing their own applications and services by using this common infrastructure.
