Japan’s Fujitsu is joining forces with Autonomic, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Smart Mobility, to bring advanced mobility services to global automakers. The two partners say they will expand their cloud mobility services to offer ride sharing, fleet management and autonomous car routing services.
Autonomic’s Transportation Mobility Cloud (TMC) is a cloud-based platform that provides automakers and other developers with the building blocks necessary for connected mobility.
“We are delighted to partner with Fujitsu to increase the ease and speed with which the automotive industry can offer mobility services to its customers,” says Gavin Sherry, CEO at Autonomic.
“In bringing together the power of the Transportation Mobility Cloud (TMC) and Fujitsu’s digital technology innovation and expertise in OEM systems integration, we can help automakers enter new markets and achieve new revenue streams.”
Junichi Azuma, Corporate Executive officer and EVP, Head of Private Enterprise Business in the Technology Solutions Business at Fujitsu Limited, adds: “Our collaboration with Autonomic exemplifies how co-creation can help us achieve our vision to create a human-centric intelligent society – a safer, more sustainable world and rewarding place for future generations.”
The partnership’s new services will be made available in the US and other regions globally.
