Microsoft's connected vehicle platform presence at IAA, the Frankfurt Auto Show

#artificialintelligence

This post was co-authored by the extended Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform (MCVP) team. A connected vehicle solution must enable a fleet of potentially millions of vehicles, distributed around the world, to deliver intuitive experiences including infotainment, entertainment, productivity, driver safety, driver assistance. In addition to these services in the vehicle, a connected vehicle solution is critical for fleet solutions like ride and car sharing as well as phone apps that incorporate the context of the user and the journey. Imagine you are driving to your vacation destination and you start your conference call from home while you are packing. When you transition to the shared vehicle, the route planning takes into account the best route for connectivity and easy driving and adjusts the microphone sensitivity during the call in the back seat.

CES 2019: The rise of AI in automotive - Microsoft Industry Blogs

#artificialintelligence

CES is always an exciting time as we eagerly await the new innovations and technologies that will shape our future. This year, one thing was evident: CES 2019 was the year of artificial intelligence (AI). AI is everywhere, making innovation faster and more accessible. AI is redefining the experiences we have across our daily lives and the experiences we have in one of the places we spend a good portion of our time--the automobile. Microsoft's vision for automotive is to enable connected, productive and safe mobility experiences anywhere for the customer along their journey.


Helping automakers drive innovation through connected cars - Internet of Things

#artificialintelligence

Last year the average American spent more than 290 hours behind the wheel of a car โ€“ that's roughly equivalent to seven 40-hour weeks โ€“ according to a report published by the AAA Foundation. When you expand that globally, the amount of time we spend driving is staggering. That's why automakers like Renault-Nissan, Volvo, BMW and Toyota are embracing the Internet of Things (IoT) to provide new ways to help drivers stay safe, connected and productive during their time on the road.


How can blockchain technology disrupt the auto industry?

#artificialintelligence

Blockchain technology has been the new kid on the "block" for some time now and is especially hot when enabling new currencies with the rollercoaster rides that these have recently taken. However, blockchains are not limited to crypto-currencies but are widely being adopted by other industries as well, especially the automotive industry. According to Frost and Sullivan, 10โ€“15% of connected vehicle transactions are expected to be on blockchain by 2025. Toyota is exploring blockchain technology in collaboration with MIT Media Lab to develop a new mobility ecosystem that could accelerate the development of autonomous driving technology, particularly with secure data sharing, car/ride share transactions and usage-based insurance. German supplier ZF and IBM announced in 2017 that they were jointly developing Car eWallet, a payment technology targeting future mobility services.
