Amazon Web Services (AWS) has expanded the capabilities of its IoT FleetWise platform, with the service now supporting data collection from an array of vehicle sensors.
Under the new feature, the platform allows customers to collect metadata, as well as images and videos from camera, lidar, radar and other vision sub-systems – improving vehicle fleet connectivity and interoperability.
As autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles become increasingly commonplace on the roads, automakers are integrating cars with a host of sensor systems for automated navigation and driving assistance purposes.
Under AWS’ new expansion, the company is looking to create a holistic platform to store and process the data collected from these sensor systems, making interoperability between the various sensor inputs a primary goal.
“Vision system data from AWS IoT FleetWise lets automotive companies easily collect and organize data from vehicle vision systems that include cameras, radars, and lidars,” the company said in a blog post. “It keeps both structured and unstructured vision system data, metadata, and telemetry data synchronized in the cloud, making it easier for customers to assemble a full picture view of events and gain insights.”
Use cases include improving fleet management, automated parking and traffic monitoring, as well as driver safety and personalization.
“Our solutions rely on the ability to collect vehicle telemetry data as well as vehicle camera data in an efficient way,” said Seong-Hyeon Cho, CEO of automotive software developer. “We are looking forward to using the data we collect through AWS IoT FleetWise to improve vehicle software capabilities that can enhance driver safety and driver personalization.”
According to AWS, the new feature “expands the scope of data-driven use cases for automotive customers,” allowing users to collect vehicle data and gain insights for fleet management and improved autonomous capabilities.
