Amazon and automaker Stellantis will collaborate on “smart cockpit” software for vehicles as part of a wide-ranging cloud and AI collaboration recently announced at CES.
Amazon said it will buy electric delivery trucks from Stellantis, and Stellantis will use Amazon Web Services as its preferred cloud provider for vehicles.
The companies are working together on in-car dashboard software that would be used in “millions of vehicles” starting in 2024. The software would be similar to an in-car app store with personalized features for specific car brands, as well as Alexa voice assistance, navigation and other cloud-based features.
Stellantis will use the AWS cloud to support the development of the STLA SmartCockpit and use Amazon technology to develop vehicles and train automotive software engineers.
Amazon will also be the first commercial customer of Stellantis’ all-electric Ram ProMaster van, which is scheduled to launch in 2023.
Stellantis was formed from the 2021 merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and France’s PSA Group, and its vehicle brands include Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and others.
