Toyota selects IBM for dev platform

25/06/2014 by


Toyota has selected IBM to design and build an application development platform that will help the Japanese vehicle manufacturer create and launch a range of telematics and cloud-based services for the automotive sector, called T-Connect.

The agreement will see Toyota and IBM work together to create an onboard devices and application development environment for Toyota Open Vehicle Architecture.

The development platform will bring together an ecosystem of mobile app developers and content providers that provide content for T-Connect, the companies said, and will include a software development kit (SDK) to help developers connect onboard device applications to the in-car ecosystem.

“As the industry continues to move toward bringing fully connected vehicles to market, new requirements for leveraging innovations in technologies like mobile continue to emerge,”said Dirk Wollschlager, general manager, global automotive industry at IBM.

“The connected vehicle transformation will require collaboration across disciplines. We are proud to start on that path with Toyota and nurture the power of its thriving ecosystem,” he said.

The platform will leverage IBM Lotus Expeditor for Automotive, middleware specifically designed for developing composite applications for connected cars.
