Introducing SAIC MOTOR Overseas Intelligent Mobility Technology today. The Fortune Global 500 corporation and biggest automaker in China, i-SMART connected vehicle platform, has chosen AWS as its key cloud provider. SAIC MOTOR powers its i-SMART connected vehicle platform which enables intelligent driving experiences in half a million vehicles across Australia, Europe, the Middle East, New Zealand, and South America with the help of AWS’s global infrastructure and portfolio of technologies, including high performance compute (HPC), storage, and Internet of Things (IoT).
SAIC i-SMART, which runs on AWS, lets drivers use their smartphone to monitor, control, and update in-car systems anywhere in the globe. SAIC MOTOR stores vast volumes of vehicle data on Amazon Simple Storage solution (Amazon S3), an object storage solution with industry-leading durability, availability, security, and scalability. SAIC MOTOR can extract more value from car data to improve the driving experience thanks to Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS).
For instance, this information is utilized to enable remote functions like door lock and unlock as well as preheating or chilling the cabin prior to drivers getting back into their cars. In addition, these customized services can execute a remote diagnostic check to verify a car is operating at peak efficiency and doesn’t require maintenance, or they can evaluate driving habits and vehicle systems to recommend nearby fueling or charging stations depending on the projected driving distance.
In addition, SAIC MOTOR leverages serverless services like AWS Lambda and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) to create an elastic and agile architecture for connected vehicles that can grow internationally. Customers may enjoy seamless, low-latency access thanks to this architecture, especially during peak driving hours like the morning and evening commutes. Furthermore, SAIC MOTOR developed serverless IoT apps based on AWS IoT Core for data collection, processing, and analysis related to vehicles.
The carmaker can safely link cars and gadgets to the cloud using Amazon IoT Core. It can also process massive amounts of data for in-the-moment analysis and remotely update the entire fleet to improve driving. In order to customize the in-car experience with virtual assistants that can offer customized recommendations, like routing and virtual tours, and to automatically diagnose vehicle issues using the owner’s manual, SAIC MOTOR plans to utilize AWS generative artificial intelligence (generative AI) services in the future. One such service is Amazon Bedrock, which makes multiple foundation models available via an API.
Additionally, SAIC MOTOR included Amazon Music, an audio entertainment platform that links listeners, musicians, and artists via music and culture, to improve the in-car experience for its clients. Available on the MG ZS EV, MG5 EV, and MG4 EV models, the i-SMART connected car platform with Amazon Music provides drivers and passengers with premium streaming media services as part of its in-vehicle listening experience.
Jie Xu, the CTO of SAIC MOTOR Overseas Intelligent Mobility Technology Co., Ltd., stated, “AWS has years of expertise in developing connected vehicles and data analysis platforms. AWS has deep experience driving innovation in the automotive industry.” “SAIC MOTOR launched the i-SMART connected car system in countries across the world with the support of AWS’s vast cloud capabilities, worldwide infrastructure, and industry-leading safety and compliance processes. In order to develop novel driver experiences, grow our company, and provide connected vehicles to more customers, SAIC MOTOR is excited to keep collaborating with AWS.
Vice president and general manager of Amazon’s Automotive and Manufacturing, Wendy Bauer, stated that the company is “excited to support SAIC MOTOR and its work to build and offer an industry-leading connected vehicle platform, bringing a customized and intelligent connected-car experience to overseas consumers.” “In the future, AWS will keep assisting the automotive sector in developing new features and services that boost safety regulations, promote sustainable mobility, and produce intelligent and networked automobiles for the worldwide market.”
