Next generation vehicles from the Stellantis stable - Opel, Citroen, Peugeot and Jeep - will be infused with artifical intelligence following the acquisition of CloudMade by the giant motor group.

The AI-powered framework created by CloudMade, with integrated graphical interfaces, is an industry-leading cloud and software development kit for collecting and analyzing automotive data sets.

“The acquisition of CloudMade’s pioneering AI capabilities will accelerate our development journey on STLA SmartCockpit and help us deliver our Dare Forward 2030 goals,” says Yves Bonnefont, Stellantis chief software officer. “Thanks to this adaptable technology and leveraging our growing connected car parc, we will create intelligent mobility solutions faster and with more flexibility, to delight our customers with in-vehicle and mobile experience personalisation.”

CloudMade’s framework architecture uses three learning approaches: personalized learning, which predicts an individual’s behavior in a particular context; fleet learning, using sensor data across devices to detect and share real world features and cohort learning, combining real world data with data from clustered groups of people distinguished by attributes.

Services and products will include predictive maintenance and diagnostics to proactively identify and schedule maintenance needs and provide alerts, thus enhancing vehicle availability, personalised in-car experiences able to adapt to individual preferences such as climate control, driving style coaching and entertainment options.

A Stellantis-specific voice assistant will have custom automotive skills to advise on car features, answer model-specific queries and optimise voice routing.

Advanced navigation and mapping will provide up-do-date maps, real-time traffic information and intelligent routing and targeted features for fleet management will allow business customers to optimise delivery schedules, reduce travel time and resource utilisation, increase productivity and EV performance, and, ultimately, facilitate the monitoring and management of the overall fleet.
