Q: What is AWS IoT FleetWise?

AWS IoT FleetWise is a managed service that allows you to collect vehicle data, transform it, and then transfer it to the cloud to gain insights about your fleet(s) of vehicles. You can use the data transferred by AWS IoT FleetWise to analyze vehicle fleet health to quickly identify potential maintenance issues, make in-vehicle infotainment systems smarter, or use analytics and machine learning (ML) to improve autonomous driving and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Q: Why should I use AWS IoT FleetWise?

AWS IoT FleetWise removes the complexities of collecting data from vehicle fleets at scale. Using virtual vehicle modeling, you can create a common data format across vehicle brands, models, and components, allowing for streamlined fleet-wide data analysis in the cloud.

AWS IoT FleetWise also helps you more intelligently collect vehicle data, which provides you access to more useful data in the cloud. You can improve data relevance by creating time- and event-based data collection campaigns that send the exact data you need to the cloud.

Q: How do I get started with AWS IoT FleetWise?

First, log in to the AWS Management Console. Next, check out the documentation for getting started on the resources page. Finally, start building with AWS IoT FleetWise by modeling your vehicle and defining data collection campaigns.

Q: What are the system requirements for the AWS IoT FleetWise Edge Agent?

The AWS IoT FleetWise Edge Agent can run on most embedded Linux-based platforms. To see examples of reference hardware the Edge Agent has been ported to, visit the Partners page. Instead of procuring hardware, the Developer Guide contains instructions for setting up a virtual environment using an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance powered by AWS Graviton2.

Porting to your target hardware is a straightforward process. To get started, you can find porting information at the AWS IoT FleetWise Edge Agent GitHub page, which includes source code access, platform support, build dependency information, and other resources. To learn more, see the Edge Agent guide available within the console.

Q: What happens to the data collected by AWS IoT FleetWise?

Data collected and ingested through AWS IoT FleetWise goes directly into your storage repository, such as Amazon Timestream or Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). You own and control data collected by AWS IoT FleetWise.

Q: Can AWS IoT FleetWise collect vehicle rich sensor data as well?

AWS IoT FleetWise collects and transports traditional CAN-based automotive sensors (for instance, engine temperature or fuel pressure). In 2023, we plan to support advanced sensors such as camera or radar.

Q: How does AWS IoT FleetWise vehicle modeling work?

A vehicle model is a digital representation of your vehicle’s sensors and signals. You can make these models as simple or as detailed as you wish. Using the virtual vehicle model as a blueprint for AWS IoT FleetWise allows you to organize vehicles by common attributes (such as number of doors) into campaigns and then set uniform collection parameters across your diverse fleet of vehicles. Vehicle models can help you create and share sensor and signal definitions across multiple providers. For detailed information, see the AWS IoT FleetWise Developer Guide.

Q: How do I select data for collection?

Define the vehicle data you wish to collect by writing straightforward, rules-based statements from the AWS IoT FleetWise console. AWS IoT FleetWise sends these statements to your vehicles from the cloud, and the Edge Agent collects and transfers data according to the statements. For detailed information, see the AWS IoT FleetWise Developer Guide.

Q: How does AWS IoT FleetWise work with my existing AWS architecture?

You can integrate AWS IoT FleetWise with your existing implementations of AWS services, such as AWS IoT Core, Amazon S3, and Amazon Timestream. To discuss integration with your specific architecture, or other integration options with AWS IoT FleetWise, contact our sales team.
