Nissan recently teamed with Microsoft to develop some next-generation technologies. This new partnership will lead to a range of connected services, many of which will be powered by the new Microsoft Azure. This cloud feature will enhance current systems, and Nissan also plans to introduce some state-of-the-art features that can’t be found anywhere else.
According to Nissan, the Nissan-Microsoft partnership is part of a multiyear agreement. That means the automaker will have some of the latest features on the market for years to come. Specifically, Nissan is looking to mainstream advanced driver assist technologies, offering 10 vehicles with such systems by the year 2020.
“A car is becoming increasingly connected, intelligent and personal,” said Ogi Redzic, Senior VP of Renault-Nissan. “Partnering with Microsoft allows us to accelerate the development of the associated key technologies needed to enable scenarios our customers want and build all-new ones they haven’t even imagined.”
Other new features include things like cloud-based connectivity, as well as remote access and diagnostics. You will be able to check your vehicle from your phone to see if the doors or locked, or you can even schedule start times. You will also be able to see potential issues on your phone, and drivers can get scheduled maintenance reminders if preferred. Nissan offers some of the best technologies on the market. We can’t wait to see what this new partnership will produce.
