STOCKHOLM, Sept. 30, 2017 — Communications technology provider Ericsson AB will collaborate with Zenuity, an automotive software development joint venture between Autoliv and Volvo Car Corp., to develop an end-to-end platform for connected safety, advanced assistance support (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) software and functions.

In the first phase of the collaboration, Ericsson and Zenuity will work closely together to develop the Zenuity Connected Cloud, powered by the Ericsson Internet of Things Accelerator. The offering will accelerate speed to market with robust cloud-based solutions for OEMs, leveraging the companies’ respective strengths and existing assets to create a strong base for innovation and new services.

The end-to-end offering will consist of in-vehicle software integrated with other vehicle functions, onboard sensors and cloud support functions that will provide external data from other vehicles and cloud infrastructure. This will enable real-time visibility to guide vehicles with information and events in transit.

“Zenuity was formed to develop the software and solutions the industry requires to create a truly global connected automotive ecosystem,” said Dennis Nobelius, CEO of Zenuity. “With a strong focus on increasing safety through ADAS and AS software and functions, our unique expertise in ADAS and autonomous technologies combined with Ericsson’s technology leadership in complex connectivity solutions is a win-win for the entire automotive industry. Together, we will provide OEMs with unique, robust and scalable cloud-based solutions with much faster time to market, allowing them to capture the seemingly endless possibilities in the connected automotive ecosystem of the future.”

“Connectivity is reshaping the future of transport, and Ericsson is right at the heart of this with our Internet of Things Accelerator platform that underpins the connected automotive ecosystem,” said Niklas Heuveldop, senior vice president, chief strategy officer and head of technology and emerging business at Ericsson. “We will work closely with Zenuity to develop a truly end-to-end offering that enables higher levels of safe driving through ADAS and AD software and functions.”

Zenuity is an ADAS and AD technology developer. Ericsson is a developer of communications technology and services.
