Visteon has inked a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) that will deliver the global technology company’s pioneering AllGo connected vehicle technology utilising AWS world-class cloud capabilities.

While AWS has been the world's most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud offering for over 15 years, Visteon is the industry leader in cockpit electronics and connected vehicle technology. Visteon’s AllGo connected services powered by AWS are expected to deliver value to constituents in every facet of the automotive industry, including manufacturers, vehicle app developers and consumers. The collaboration utilises multiple AWS technology solutions across IoT, storage, and compute categories and a fast, secure cloud environment to handle critical connected vehicle activities and create the car’s own digital ecosystem.

AllGo is designed to meet the growing global demand for software-defined vehicles having the latest software, and safe and convenient ways to access app-based content in a smart, connected cockpit. It features automotive-optimized versions of the most sought-after mobility, navigation, parking and infotainment apps around the world, and leverages Visteon’s pioneering work in in-vehicle infotainment, providing next-level integration based on Android Automotive. 

AllGo vehicle connectivity features include:
- Ability to perform vehicle software updates over-the-air (OTA) instead of at the dealership. This capability is powered by AWS IoT Core and AWS IoT Device Management.
- An automotive App Store that allows vehicle manufacturers to develop and manage proprietary apps, allows owners to customize their own suite of in-vehicle apps, and securely handles activities like payment integration.

“This collaboration is an important step toward using AWS technologies and cloud systems to improve capabilities for automotive app developers and OEMs while providing a better in-vehicle experience for drivers and passengers,” said Yasser Alsaied, Vice President of IoT for AWS. “We share Visteon’s vision of building a more connected, convenient, and safer vehicle experience.”

AllGo offers native applications as well as the ability to download the most popular mobility apps. This solution provides the opportunity for developers to create new and OEM-proprietary applications that add value, while meeting consumer demand for an experience rivaling smartphone and other connected devices. Over-the-air update capability keeps software-enabled features running smooth and the cockpit experience new and fresh.

“AllGo is at the forefront of connected car technologies for the mobility industry. Our collaboration with AWS allows us to leverage their world-class cloud capabilities, expertise and technology to help us deliver the next generation of connected services,” said Yeddanapudi Sivakumar, Director-Cockpit for Visteon.
