VW and Microsoft together for the connected car
The Volkswagen Group will work with Microsoft to develop the connected car of the future. Which will be based on the Volkswagen Automotive Cloud platform developed on Microsoft's Azure technologies.
This is a strategic move for the Group, whose benefits will be extended to all brands.
The adoption of the new platform will facilitate the development of telematic services for consumers and communication between cars and the cloud.
For the development of the project the carmaker will build a new office in the States, in Redmond, a few steps from the headquarters of Microsoft.
