Accelerating innovation Revolutionizing performance

Hardware, meet Software

Today's vehicle includes thousands of software components. As the amount of software increases, so does the effort required to make different systems work as a whole. A unified platform reduces complexity, streamlines development, enables seamless integration, and reduces security risks.

Intelligent cloud, Intelligent vehicles

Volkswagen Automotive Cloud will soon process data from millions of vehicles around the globe. This includes data about the performance and condition of the vehicle, battery charging, remote services, the vehicle's surroundings, weather, accidents or near-accidents, service history, and much more. This data will be used to unlock new conveniences for drivers and passengers.
