Ayro accelerates into the future with Ford’s Autonomic connected car platform
Autonomic, a subsidiary of Ford, has partnered with electric vehicle manufacturer Ayro to develop a range of services for mobility applications.
Ayro develops emissions-free, electric light-duty vehicles for commercial and consumer markets. Autonomic is a cloud platform designed specifically for the advancement of connected cars.
Gavin Sherry, Co-Founder and CEO of Autonomic, said:
“At Autonomic, we designed our platform to accelerate the progress of connected vehicles and it’s a privilege to work with Ayro, one of the most visionary EV companies on the market.
Already, they’re poised for incredible growth and our Transportation Mobility Cloud will accelerate that.”
According to BloombergNEF, over two million electric vehicles were sold last year. Meanwhile, some analysts are predicting 25 million sold in 2025. That’s a potentially huge pie and Autonomic and Ayro will be hoping for their slice of it.
Ayro is leveraging Autonomic’s TMC to create new applications and services which include:
Two-way data and telematic exchanges for Ayro’s fleet customers and individual users.
Geo-location tools for proximity-based communications for business partners, restaurants and shops.
Services to monitor use rates, deployment efficiency, fleet and vehicle performance, advanced maintenance and service levels for fleet operators.
Real-time feedback for range, maintenance, and available services for drivers.
Rod Keller, CEO of Ayro, comments:
“We’re excited to partner with the Autonomic team to develop custom apps and services that will maximize our fleet owners’ management abilities along with a unique user experience.
Autonomic’s experience with cloud-based transportation applications is a tremendous asset for Ayro as we develop the finest user experiences for our customers.”
The partners claim this is the first major partnership between a cloud platform and a manufacturer of compact electric vehicles.
