Vehicle edge-to-cloud compute solution aims to enable new automotive industry revenue
Sets foundation for data-driven services and enhancements that offer differentiation and cost
reduction such as predictive maintenance.
Expands access to vehicle Big Data and streamlines machine learning life cycle to accelerate
vehicle development and post-sale vehicle enhancements.
EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, Nov. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) NXP Semiconductors has announced
a strategic relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS) focused on extending the opportunities of
connected vehicles. The collaboration aims to deliver a secure, edge-to-cloud compute solution for
next-generation vehicles that can enable new cloud-powered services to benefit carmakers, their
business partners and consumers alike.

Data will fuel future vehicle innovations as the automotive industry shifts focus from horsepower
to compute power. This transformation has the potential to deliver valuable vehicle insights and
drive new data-driven service revenue. Expanded access to real-time, vehicle-wide data, secure
connectivity to cloud services and streamlined machine learning (ML) can accelerate the shift and
enable intelligent vehicles that improve over their lifetime through remote updates.
To realize the promising services of future connected vehicles, the automotive industry requires a
new type of compute solution with centralized access to vehicle-wide data that can work securely
and collaboratively with the cloud. The integration of AWS edge and cloud services with NXP’s new
S32G vehicle network processor for service-oriented gateways addresses the challenge.
“NXP is pleased to collaborate with AWS to help our automotive customers accelerate their digital
transformation initiatives by unlocking the value of vehicle data and leveraging edge-to-cloud
services,” said Henri Ardevol, executive vice president and general manager of Automotive
Processing at NXP Semiconductors, “We see the opportunity to help them make impactful improvements
throughout vehicle life cycles with new vehicle data insights and the ability to make continuous
improvements using machine learning and over-the-air updates.”
Real-time vehicle insights can drive a myriad of new use cases and services. For example,
carmakers can monitor for potential component failures before a repair is needed, prevent costly
warranty repairs and recalls, optimize the supply chain and improve the customer experience by
minimizing service visits.
Mobility and insurance companies can leverage expanded data to create new business models and
provide cost-reduction benefits to drivers according to vehicle condition and driving behavior.
Carmakers can offer attractive services that leverage vehicle sensors and other data to create new
user experiences and capabilities such as remote viewing inside and around the vehicle for
convenience, safety and security.
The NXP S32G processor leverages
AWS IoT Greengrass
AWS IoT Core
for vehicle and cloud data processing and storage, as well as Amazon
to build, train and deploy optimized ML models. Deep learning inferencing in the vehicle is
supported by NXP’s ASPICE-qualified
eIQ® Auto toolkit. Initial S32G
platforms have been qualified for AWS IoT Greengrass, and Yocto meta-layer support is available to
enable automotive customer innovations today.
NXP and AWS will present a
to discuss the connected vehicle solution and demonstrate a Connected Electric Vehicle (EV)
Management System on November 19th at 11am EST.
