Volkswagen Group’s MOIA Develops Connected Vehicle Solutions on AWS for Electric Ridesharing Fleet
The newest company in the Volkswagen Group, MOIA launched in December 2016. MOIA offers ridesharing services with its fully-electric fleet of vehicles, aiming to be one of the world's leading mobility service providers by 2025. According to Moritz Siuts, director of engineering at MOIA, the company started with a greenfield development and wanted to have a stable, cost-efficient platform—leading MOIA to Amazon Web Services (AWS). “AWS provides us with a variety of services we need so we can combine them together. We use a lot of IoT and AWS IoT Greengrass to have Lambda@Edge in the vehicle to collect all of the data,” says Siuts. On AWS, MOIA can easily scale while also maintaining the flexibility to apply learnings from collected data back into MOIA’s platform for continuous optimization.
