Toyota and Amazon Web Services collaborate on Toyota’s Mobility Services Platform

Toyota Motor Corporation and Amazon Web Services (AWS), a subsidiary of Amazon.com, are expanding their collaboration, applying AWS’s services portfolio to expand Toyota Mobility Services Platform (TMSP), an ecosystem to help Toyota engineers develop, deploy and manage the next generation of data-driven mobility services for driver and passenger safety, security, comfort and convenience in cloud-connected Toyota vehicles.

Toyota’s MSPF leverages the reliability and scalability of AWS’s global infrastructure as well as development expertise from AWS Professional Services to meet the challenge of processing and analysing data from operations within Toyota’s worldwide fleet of connected vehicles. The MSPF and its application programming interfaces (API) will enable Toyota to collect data from connected vehicles and apply it towards vehicle design and development, new contextual services such as car share, rideshare, full-service lease, and new corporate and consumer services such as proactive vehicle maintenance notifications and driving behaviour-based insurance.

The collaboration between Toyota and AWS extends to Toyota’s entire enterprise and will help build a foundation for streamlined and secure data sharing throughout the company and accelerate its move toward CASE (Connected, Autonomous/Automated, Shared and Electric) mobility technologies.

In expanding Toyota’s relationship with AWS, Shigeki Tomoyama, Chief Information & Security Officer and Chief Production Officer at Toyota Motor Corporation, said: “Connectivity drives all of the processes of development, production, sales and service in the automotive business. Expanding our agreement with AWS to strengthen our vehicle data platform will be a major advantage for CASE activities within Toyota.”
