Volvo and Ericsson working together on connected cars

Volvo Car Group and Ericsson have formed a partnership to develop internet-based ‘connected car’ services. Plans include a ‘Connected Vehicle Cloud’ based on Ericsson’s Multiservice Delivery Platform to provide in-car infotainment, apps and communication services.

For example, a driver will be able to download applications, create an on-line service booking and interact with selected commercial partners.

Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President for Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars, said “We clearly see that cars in the near future will integrate the same level of digital services that consumers today are used to have in their homes or at work. This is a strategically important part of Volvo Cars’ investments for the future where we intend to take a leading position. Ericsson is a perfect partner for Volvo Cars, bringing extensive experience and global technology understanding to the table. On top of this both companies share the same ambition to develop industry-leading solutions in line with our shared vision of the future based on a networked society.”
