Avis chooses AWS to drive forward a connected car platform vision.

James Bourne, Cloud Tech

Avis is using AWS Connected Vehicle Solution, the infrastructure behemoth’s product which focuses on transporting vehicle data to Amazon’s cloud securely, with low latency and low overhead.

Options for customers include local computing within vehicles, as well as data processing and storage. The technology can be seen as essentially a three-way process between AWS Greengrass, which takes AWS’ cloud to local devices, S3 storage, and Lambda, AWS’ serverless offering.

Avis has more than 100,000 connected cars in its fleet today and will be uploading data from a variety of vehicle manufacturers for data management and analytics purposes. The company’s goal with the AWS move is to persuade partners on board with the promise of anonymised connected car data which could glean insights around smart city planning, such as road conditions and traffic volume data.

“The platform we built leveraging AWS’s connected vehicle solution gives us advanced data management and scalable analytics capabilities for our connected car platform,” said Arthur Orduna, Avis Budget Group chief innovation officer. “We now have the ability to scale up based on demand and our data is backed by AWS’s software and massive infrastructure, so we have access to new insights-driven tools, storage resources, and first-class security.”
