Amazon Web Services (AWS) will help Toyota build a platform to help manage and monetize data gathered from the automaker’s global vehicle fleet, the companies announced on Monday.

“Connectivity drives all of the processes of development, production, sales and service in the automotive business. Expanding our agreement with AWS to strengthen our vehicle data platform will be a major advantage for CASE activities within Toyota,” said Shigeki Tomoyama, chief information and security officer, and chief production officer at Toyota Motor Corporation. 

The Japanese automaker said the collaboration with AWS will help expand its Mobility Services Platform (MSPF), which will assist Toyota’s engineers in developing, deploying, and managing the next generation of data-driven mobility services for driver and passenger safety, security, comfort, and convenience in Toyota’s cloud-connected vehicles.

The collaboration between Toyota and AWS extends to Toyota’s entire enterprise, and will help build a foundation for streamlined and secure data sharing throughout the company and accelerate its move toward CASE (Connected, Autonomous/Automated, Shared and Electric) mobility technologies.

“Toyota is leveraging the unmatched breadth and depth of AWS services to transform how it develops and manages new mobility services across its entire ecosystem of connected vehicles around the world,” said Andy Jassy, CEO of AWS. “By running on AWS, with its high performance, functionality, and security, Toyota is able to innovate quickly across its enterprise and continue to lead the automotive industry in delivering the quality of experiences that customers expect.”
