TCS Autoscape™ Connected Vehicle Solutions
5 MINS READ
The future of the automotive industry is based on Neural Manufacturing™, where sense, perceive, and act behaviors are crucial not only in the final product and service, but also during the product development cycle.
Five years from now, a great majority of new vehicles are expected to be connected. This will allow vehicle manufacturers many opportunities for delivering personalized customer journeys both in and out of the vehicle. These opportunities in turn will pave the way for innovative business models, enabling monetization of vehicle and driver data.
To address these market opportunities and to accelerate customers’ journey in the connected vehicle space, TCS has developed Autoscape™ – Connected Vehicle Solutions. This suite of solutions offers onboard and offboard automotive expertise – from cloud and software development to user experience and analytics – along with focused business advisory services.
The solutions are enriched with TCS’ deep understanding of the allied industries essential to an integrated ecosystem, and research and innovation capabilities through patented platforms, solutions, and assets. Through Neural Manufacturing, TCS is well positioned to offer customers the benefits of connected vehicle capabilities.
On the other hand, other ecosystem players such as suppliers, mobility providers, and fleet companies have been expanding their connected vehicle offerings to improve their operations, provide better customer experience, and enable new business models. There is a need for a secure and scalable connected vehicle platform to achieve these objectives.
TCS has created an integrated solution to tackle the prevalent challenges and generate opportunities through Autoscape, which provides the scalability and security needed to build the connected vehicle as a digital experience platform. The solutions provide personalized customer experience in and out of the vehicle and enable data monetization opportunities derived through analytical insights. They also provide a comprehensive toolset for managing customer consent for data collection, facilitating the sale of data through a digital subscription platform. With these features, vehicle manufacturers can manage the vehicle life cycle and ensure customer loyalty.
Connected vehicle experience offers platform-based solutions for personalized digital connected vehicle experiences, enabled through the cloud. These also include unique and differentiated capabilities such as vehicle personalization, subscription and pay-as-you-go services, blockchain-based payments, and digital key.
Connected insights solution provides original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and partners in the automotive segment actionable insights from the data received from the connected vehicle ecosystem. This capability includes offerings such as connected customer insights, journey intelligence, vehicle predictive maintenance, vehicle-as-a-data model, algorithm-as-a-service, and data track and trace. The solution also includes pre-built connected insights and provides a self-serve and collaboration environment.
Data monetization toolkit enables OEMs and partners in the automotive ecosystem to develop new business models with various opportunities for data monetization. This can be offered as a full-service portfolio or integrated individually into the customer’s existing ecosystem. This toolkit opens opportunities for data monetization through TCS’ data marketplace platform, integrated with consent management and subscription management platforms.
