Google and Renault announce partnership to develop a ‘software-defined vehicle’
Google’s Android Automotive has been slowly picking up pace in recent years with more vehicle manufacturers opting for the in-car entertainment and control system. A new deeper partnership between Renault and Google aims to deliver a “software-defined vehicle,” or as they have more boldly claimed the “vehicle of tomorrow.”
No details have been shared on how Google and Renault plan to differentiate this project from the Android Automotive system found in cars from Volvo, Polestar, Honda, General Motors, and more. A press release does state that Google will become the “preferred” cloud supplier to Renault Group. This will help accelerate Renault’s “Move to Cloud” strategy and could see more in-depth utilization of AI capabilities for upcoming vehicles.
