Automotive technology company Faurecia and Microsoft have announced a partnership to create disruptive, connected and personalised services inside the ‘Cockpit of the Future’.

Combining expertise in edge-computing, artificial intelligence, cloud-based services, cockpit systems integration and consumer insights, Faurecia aims to collaborate with Microsoft to develop digital services based on the ‘Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform’ to reinvent the on-board experience for all occupants. Faurecia has also chosen Microsoft Cloud Azure as its preferred cloud platform.

Patrick Koller, CEO of Faurecia, says: “Consumers today expect digital continuity between home, office and car. The collaboration with Microsoft will enable us to offer disruptive experiences so that vehicle occupants can use their time for different activities such as immersive gaming or working. This is another key step in building our differentiating ecosystem to accelerate innovation."

During the next CES to be held in Las Vegas from January 7 to 10, 2020, Faurecia will showcase the first fruits of this technology collaboration.
