Zenuity is collaborating with Ericsson to launch Zenuity Connected Cloud. Zenuity is an automotive software development joint venture between Autoliv and Volvo Car focused on Advanced Driver Assistance Support (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD) systems.
This new platform will utilize Ericsson’s technology infrastructure to provide a suite of vehicle-connected services that can be customized by the OEM based on their AD/ADAS needs. It will combine and share all relevant data for the current driving conditions for all partnering OEMs and deliver the information to the vehicle and its driver right when it’s needed.
It will consist of in-vehicle software integrated with other vehicle functions, onboard sensors and cloud support functions that will provide external data from other vehicles and infrastructure. The goal is to provide a virtual horizon that guides vehicles with status information and events on their route.
As part of the collaboration, Ericsson will provide and operate the cloud infrastructure required to run Zenuity’s cloud support functions. It will also provide further support to Zenuity in the development of the service enablement layer. The solutions created by Ericsson and Zenuity will be sold and promoted by Autoliv to car manufacturers worldwide.
