Why NetApp for AI in automotive?

Your drivetrain to AI

AI is transforming the world of automotive. From connected and autonomous vehicles (AVs) to mobility as a service (MaaS) to smart manufacturing, AI is the motor, and a proper data infrastructure is the drivetrain. For automotive leaders, building an AI-ready infrastructure can seem more like an F1 track with hairpin turns, and less like a straightforward drag strip. NetApp AI solutions help you build a data pipeline across your hybrid cloud to fuel digital transformation, improve data mobility, and propel next-generation vehicles.

Fuel autonomous vehicles and mobility as a service

Training autonomous vehicles to see and make split-second decisions through AI and computer vision is no easy task. It requires an efficient data pipeline spanning edge, core, and cloud to quickly turn massive volumes of diverse vehicle data into actionable insights. With 108 billion miles of estimated demand for the United States alone,Statista, Mobility-as-a-Service: Statistics & facts, April 2022 AVs pose a colossal opportunity for MaaS. Soon, AI algorithms will be driving semitrucks and mass transit solutions. And, with the boom in pay-per-use services, they’ll even deliver your groceries.
