Auto edge consortium advances green mobility with white paper and proof of concept

The Automotive Edge Computing Consortium (AECC) has released a white paper titled “Connected Infrastructure for the Realization of the Green Mobility Society.” Additionally, AECC members Toyota, KDDI and Cisco have completed a green mobility Proof of Concept (PoC).

The newly released white paper delves into the concept of a green mobility society and its potential to transform the future of automobile travel. It explores the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in creating user experiences and discusses the challenges and characteristics of the connected infrastructure necessary to make this vision a reality.

Ken-ichi Murata, the president and chairperson of the AECC and fellow at the Software Development Center at Toyota Motor Corporation, welcomes industry stakeholders, environmental advocates and innovators to explore the white paper and proof-of-concept.

“We invite like-minded individuals and organizations to join AECC in contributing to the proof-of-concept initiatives aimed at materializing the vision of green mobility,” Murata comments.

The white paper highlights several key innovations for the future of transportation. One is the Concierge Service, which uses AI to provide personalized conversations and real-time guidance to drivers based on traffic, road conditions and energy status. Another innovation is Accident Prevention Support. AI identifies road hazards through image data and notifies authorities of necessary repairs.

The paper also mentions transforming vehicles into “new living rooms” with large displays, creating an immersive entertainment experience combining real-time vehicle data and virtual content. Lastly, the importance of connected infrastructure for green mobility is emphasized, with the aim of creating a comfortable environment for users even when not driving.

Meanwhile, the AECC’s Green Mobility PoC, conducted in collaboration with Toyota, KDDI and Cisco, focuses on optimizing energy and mobility flows through digital technologies.

According to the consortium, the PoC pre-processed data at roadside facilities, leading to a 94% reduction in facility power and cooling and a more than 50% reduction in total energy.

Additionally, Murata mentions that the AECC advocates for constant updates to mobility services through digitalized or software-defined vehicles.

“To handle the potential increase in data usage resulting from this approach, the AECC introduces a creative strategy to strike a balance between user demands and energy consumption,” Murata explains.

The Automotive Edge Computing Consortium (AECC) is a global association of industry leaders focused on addressing connected vehicles’ data and communication requirements.

The AECC PoC Program addresses the data transfer requirements of the connected vehicle services ecosystem.
