• To improve “in-vehicle experience” by integrating AWS’ AI technologies. The joint venture will create a smart-car platform called STLA SmartCockpit. It is expected to be available worldwide by 2024. The platform will integrate AI capabilities, such as the Alexa natural language platform into vehicle cockpits, to enable tasks related navigation, vehicle maintenance and media play. STLA SmartCockpit will allow users to control their cars via their Alexa apps. They can also plan their trips and monitor their smart-home devices and security systems.
  • To prime Stellantis’ infrastructure for developing next-generation smart-car platforms. Stellantis is moving its entire vehicle data pipeline into a “data mesh” on AWS, in order to take advantage AWS’ machine-learning, data processing, and scalability capabilities.
  • To expand employee training opportunities. Stellantis will add AWS to its employee education program. AWS will create a new curriculum that focuses on “software, data, and cloud technology.” Stellantis also plans to train more than 5,000 developers and engineers in AWS cloud technologies over the next two-years.

“We are developing solutions that will enable Stellantis connect and personalize in-vehicle experiences that can be tailored to each occupant’s needs,” stated Andy Jassy, Amazon CEO. “We will work together to make Stellantis a global leader for software-driven engineering and development.
