Toyota Picks IBM to Build Platform for Advanced In-Car Services

Toyota Motor Corporation has selected IBM to build and design a new application development platform for in-car services.  The project is part of Toyota’s new telematics service, called T-Connect, and aims to accelerate application development and deployment as well as enhance in-car services that will shape the future of connected vehicles.

Toyota and IBM will work together to create an onboard devices and application development environment for Toyota Open Vehicle Architecture. This single development platform will bring together an ecosystem of mobile app developers and content providers that provide content for T-Connect. Using the IBM platform, app developers and content providers will be able to better collaborate on building and designing apps for in-car services.

IBM Lotus Expeditor for Automotive is middleware that creates composite applications. It provides client integration tools to deploy and manage composite applications as part of a flexible environment.

"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 Wollschl├Ąger, general manager, Global Automotive Industry, 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.”
