Default Renault-Nissan & Microsoft join hands for connected mobility

The Renault-Nissan alliance has entered a partnership with Microsoft to jointly work on developing next-generation connected car technologies. This new partnership is being seen as a major step towards Renault-Nissan's aim to launch more than 10 vehicles with autonomous tech by the year 2020.

The automotive alliance will be working with the global tech giant to build connected car services that are powered by Microsoft Azure - an intelligent cloud computing platform. Azure has deliberately been chosen as it supports multiple operating systems, programming languages and tools. This will thus provide flexibility to build a common platform, and then use it for both Nissan and Renault cars across the globe.

The connected mobility platforms will offer services like predictive maintenance, vehicle-centric services, remote monitoring of car features and external mobile experiences. It will also allow customers to personalize and protect their settings and preferences, while giving an option to transfer them from one car to another. This will help in giving the car a personal touch by offering services like adaptive route suggestions and advanced navigation.

The new mobility services will also download over the air updates to various subsystems of the vehicle, like autonomous driving software and collision-avoidance applications. Vehicle owners will be able to keep a check on their vehicle through their mobile phones or laptops. Moreover, the owner can access the car's features to activate air conditioning, lock/unlock the car, or even trigger remote charging.

Through the car connectivity platforms, customers will be able to access advanced vehicle diagnostic services. It will enable manufacturers to collect real usage data from the car in order to support and improve vehicle engineering.

As part of its autonomous goals, the Renault-Nissan alliance has also recently acquired a French software-development company named Sylpheo to boost its mobility services program.
