Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance Launches Intelligent Cloud Connectivity Platform

The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance will debut its new connected platform later this year in the Nissan Leaf EV and the redesigned Renault Clio supermini.

Dubbed the Alliance Intelligent Cloud, this is a platform built on Microsoft Azure. Its purpose is to enable the three automakers to deliver connected services in vehicles sold in nearly all of the 200 markets in which they operate.

Once operational, the platform will provide drivers with seamless access to the internet, enhanced remote diagnostics, continuous software deployment, firmware updates and access to infotainment services. The technology will also help automakers with data to channel into self-driving car systems.

The data-driven platform will also enable advanced AI and analytics scenarios and accelerate time to market for new innovations and business initiatives.

“Today we are deploying a vehicle connectivity platform that will transform the digital experience for customers of Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi. Through our collaboration with Microsoft, we are introducing the most powerful and far-reaching connected vehicle platform. Leveraging the size and scale of the Alliance, we have built an intelligent cloud platform that sets the pace for our industry,” stated Kal Mos, global VP of Alliance Connected Vehicles at Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi.

Ultimately, the Alliance Intelligent Cloud will be able to connect Alliance vehicles with future smart cities, while any third-party looking to connect with any such vehicle will have a single point of contact to partner with.
