Autonomic-Fujitsu Collaboration Brings Mobility Services to Automakers
Fujitsu and Autonomic (a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Smart Mobility) today announce a joint collaboration to offer OEMs worldwide a fast and flexible solution to support the automotive industry’s transformation to mobility-as-a-service models.
Leveraging Autonomic’s expertise in cloud services for connected vehicles and Fujitsu’s capabilities in technology integration and experience in the automotive space, the companies will initially deliver the Transportation Mobility Cloud (TMC) and Fujitsu systems integration services to Ford Motor Company, followed by a rollout to other automakers globally.
